Coast Guard Festival Run

Presented by North Ottawa Community Health System 

For over 40 years, the Tri-Cities Family YMCA has hosted two exceptional run events in the beautiful community of Grand Haven. Our runs feature challenging courses, varied terrain and beautiful views of Lake Michigan. All of the proceeds from the race events benefit youth and family programs at the Tri-Cities Family YMCA.

The Tri-Cities Family YMCA invites you to join us for the Coast Guard Festival Fun, presented by North Ottawa Community Health System! Whether you are an avid racer or an occasional walker, there is something for everyone and all ages are welcome. Our races consist of a US Track & Field certified 5K Run and 10K Run, as well as a 1 Mile Family Fun Run/Walk (be sure to bring your wagon or stroller) and a Tot Trot obstacle course for ages 3-6. Join us for this fun family event as we promote healthy lifestyles and building community in the Tri-Cities area! See you on the race course!
