Now in its 36th year, the Irish Jig has grown to become one of Michigan’s premier 5K road races. The USATF-certified course is mostly flat with a few gentle hills. The start of the race is a short walk from the East Grand Rapids High School gym where participants will check-in prior to the event. Top age group winners and qualifying teams receive prizes, and top overall finishers receive cash awards. All registered participants will receive a long sleeve, gender-specific, technical shirt.

Spectrum Health is proud to provide this event to promote colorectal cancer awareness and to raise funds for colorectal cancer education, prevention and diagnostic services through the Spectrum Health Foundation.
