The pop of the gun sends hundreds or even thousands of runners and walkers of all ages into the street. As foot meets pavement, racers journey toward the finish line.
While participants compete for health and sport, most also compete to draw awareness and support to a wide range of charitable causes. Often, the proceeds generated by running events are donated to specific charities, providing participants with a great reason to support their loved ones and run in Oakland County.
Avid and amateur runners to summer walkers are invited to put their feet to the pavement and run (or walk) any number of the races scheduled during the summer months. Use our Summer Running List to find a race near you!
