Rockford, MI

Official Website


This is the 22nd annual 5K Race and Kids K Fun Run thru downtown Rockford. NEW THIS YEAR - you may register to run the 1st annual Virtual 5K Run/Walk and report your race time. *We will take all necessary precautions to keep our runners and spectators safe. In the event the race cannot occur live, we will switch all runners to a Virtual 5K and host a socially distanced packet pick up.

Mitchell's Run Thru Rockford (MRTR) was organized to benefit Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy (PPMD). Mitchell Peterson, and many other boys and some girls from West Michigan have been diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. All race proceeds will be donated to PPMD in Mitchell's honor, to END DUCHENNE. This is a fun, family event, with live music and a festive atmosphere. The course runs through scenic Rockford and along The White Pine Trail!!!! Superheros and Disney Princesses will be available for photographs at the race again this year!

Each registered 5K participant will receive a Mitchell's Run Race Tee, a finisher medal and post race snacks & drinks. Each registered Kids K participant will receive a Mitchell's Run Race Tee, a kid friendly finisher medal, and a post race ice cream or popsicle treat. NEW THIS YEAR - Each Virtual 5K participant will be mailed a race packet with our MRTR Race Tee, Race Bib and Medal at least one week prior to the event. Instructions for reporting race time will be sent in a separate email.

In the event that our live race should be cancelled, we will immediately switch to a virtual event. Sorry, no refunds as our event is a fundraiser. Each registered 5K and Kids K participant will still receive a Mitchell's Run Race Tee, race bib, and a finisher medal. We will host a social distanced packet pick up if necessary.
