THANK YOU TO OUR 2021 SPONSORS!

The 5K was a big success! Hundreds of runners made their way to Warren City Center to work up a sweat and celebrate our community. But none of this would have been possible without the generous support of our sponsor businesses. Not only did they fund our endeavor, but their donations will go towards worthy nonprofits and organizations in Warren and Center Line.

WE HAVE AN ANNOUNCEMENT!

THE 4TH ANNUAL RUN WARREN 5K WILL NOW TAKE PLACE AS A TANDEM EVENT WITH CRUISIN' 53!

TradeMark-Final_C53.png

WE'RE COMBINING OUR TWO BIGGEST EVENTS FOR ONE EPIC DAY OF FUN!

2019 was the inaugural Cruisin' 53, a car cruise that took over Van Dyke in both Warren and Center Line to bring a long-awaited and requested event to the heart of Warren. In an effort to engage Warren City Hall on cruise day, and excite and mobilize the community, Run Warren 5K will be the morning headlining event within this full day of activity!

The 4th annual run will remain the same in the ways that are important, our USTAF-certified course, our top-level monitoring courtesy of Eastside Racing Company and prizes offered in several age categories. But we will be expanding the health and fitness offerings onsite for the run and the run will serve as a fantastic opener to further excitement at Warren City Hall and right up at the road at City Center Plaza serving as Cruise Headquarters.

 

WHY NOT RUN FOR A CAUSE?

Come one, come all! The Warren Community Foundation invites you to lace up your shoes and get in the race! Spend a beautiful Sunday morning with us at Warren City Square as we work up a sweat to benefit our beloved community with The 4th Annual Run Warren. Between our USATF-certified 5K Run/Walk, Kids Fun Run, and Senior Walk, the whole family can get up and get active.
