Description

Welcome! 


For 2021, Millennium Meadows Marathon is planning a LIVE Full Marathon, Half Marathon and 10k. All three events will take place Sunday August 29th. 


NEW THIS YEAR - Race the Race Director Challenge - See details below!


The 4th Annual Millennium Meadows Marathon events occur at Secchia Meadows in Millennium Park, one of the many Kent County Parks and what we think is the most scenic and beautiful. You will run on a wide and paved path that crosses a footbridge, winds along the Grand River and cuts through meadows. Most of the course is heavily shaded.


COVID PROTOCOL: Special protocols, such as masks, etc, may be necessary at time of event. We will operate based on the latest information from CDC, Michigan Department of Public Health, Kent County Health Dept. 


We are a proud supporter of the Kent County Parks Department. Use our Donate button to donate, and we will match your donation!
