Looking Back at the 2014 Brooksie Way

bw1
I am pretty sure that the thousands of the runners in the seventh annual Brooksie Way half marathon, are glad that the race is behind them, and they don’t have to see any more hills until next year’s race. The course starts and ends at Meadow Brook on the campus of Oakland University and runners run along parts of the Clinton River and Paint Creek trails, Rochester Hills and downtown Rochester.

The PlayOaklandCounty  team was present, scanning the QR codes on racers’ bibs to deliver real time results to the participants, answering people’s questions, and taking #BrooksieWay pictures for an #OaklandCounty Facebook album.

The event proceeds will be distributed as mini-grants to healthy living initiatives in the county by way of the Brooksie Way Mini-Grant program.
