About This Event
The goal of the Town Crier 5K & 10K is to provide
an outstanding competitive event for runners that encourages health,
exercise and fun for all! Two new courses this year-the 10K which
includes a loop on the bike path and woods southwest of town and
the 5K winding around historic Saugatuck. Run both races for just
one entry fee. The 1K Crier Kids Dash is a non-competitive fun
run to interest kids in running as a sport. The Town Crier will
benefit Saugatuck Public School athletics, Community Recreation,
Saugatuck Youth Center and SABA.
The 10K begins at 9 a.m.
Next is the Crier Kids Dash at 9:15 a.m. The 5K will begin between
10 and 10:15 a.m. depending on the 10K finishers. For more information
