What: The October 9th, 2022 Good Fight 5K, 12:00 noon start

Traverse City Track Club’s Good Fight 5K returns to the Grand Traverse County Civic Center Pathway!

The experience of walking or running a 5K or mile in town at our beloved Civic Center (like own own Central Park) will take place on Sunday October 9th, 2022, with start time at 12:00 noon.

Note: One Mile Wellness Walkers will not be included in the awards which are for the 5K only. Also available is a virtual 5k option for those who want to support the event outside of the area (no medal or giveaway).

This year’s event is at our original location from 1994 (formerly known as the Remembrance Run) at the Civic Center pathway, calling on participants of all ages and abilities to take on the “good fight” along-side others who have been impacted in some way by cancer - whether a survivor, in the middle of the challenges brought on by a cancer diagnosis, or in remembrance of a loved one.

Bib and packet pick up starts Sunday at 10:30 a.m. at the Pavilion at the South end of the Civic Center near the entrance of Titus Rd.

The event is timed and includes awards to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers in these male and female age categories:

18 & under; 19-24; 25-29; 30-34; 35-39; 40-44; 45-49; 50-54; 55-59; 60-64; 65-69; 70-74; 75-79; and 80+

Since 1994, participant entry fees and the various partner and sponsor relationships and activities have enabled the Traverse City Track Club to donate on their behalf over $250,000 to the Munson Healthcare Foundations.

The Munson Healthcare Foundations' Cancer Patient Needs Fund provides direct financial support for expenses not covered by insurance for those undergoing cancer treatments. Examples of support include gas cards, funds to pay utility bills, childcare, and rent for those fighting cancer.

The entry fee includes a finisher souvenir, bib, and the commemorative runner giveaway/swag (virtual option does not include giveaway/swag).

The Good Fight 5K event is open for registration through October 6th.. 

Bib pick-up will be held the day of the event starting at 10:30 a.m. under the Pavilion at the Civic Center which is located near the S. Civic Center entrance. 

This event is presented in partnership with Hagerty of Traverse City, which has been a long-time partner in the event.

$5 of each entry fee will be donated by TCTC to the Munson Healthcare Foundations' Cancer Patient Need Fund and participants can help raise additional funds by choosing to "add a gift" amount to their entry fee during the registration process. This entire amount will be donated to the Munson Healthcare Foundations.

All registrants will receive a custom event souvenir.
