This run series provides a premier racing experience, highlighting both the eclectic urban corridor and natural beauty of Michigan’s capital city and adjoining rivers. 

The Capital City River Run makes a real impact within the community, benefiting Impression 5 Science Center and its mission to provide children and families access to science exploration through hands-on exhibits and participatory programming.
