On a Sunday afternoon, April 24th was an early season 5K run and one mile walk. This is a family-friendly community event to celebrate health, wellness, and physical fitness. The 5K course is USATF certified and endorsed by the Governor's Council for Physical Fitness through the Michigan Fitness Foundation. The race begins near the entrance of Legacy Field at Greenville High School and follows a scenic course along the Fred Meijer Flat River Trail. The return takes runners through nearby neighborhoods and the campus of Montcalm Community College with an exciting finish through the tunnel onto Legacy Field and across the south 30 yard line of the high school football field. Proceeds benefit the Education Foundation of Greenville to support health and wellness initiatives at Greenville Public Schools, including mental health support. http://www.yellowjacketchalenge.com
