Organiser's Description

Welcome! 
For 2024, Millennium Meadows Marathon is proud to be hosting its 7th year! We will feature a Full Marathon, Half Marathon, 10k, and Marathon RELAY. All four events will take place Sunday, August 25th. 
Again this year we are offering a referral program! Once you register youll see a referral link that you can share via social media or email, with whoever will signup. Once they register using that code, YOU will be refunded $5 per person. Its good for as many times, until your registration is fully refunded! Who doesnt love money back?
Secchia Meadows provides the perfect course for a team relay, with each relay leg being roughly 4 miles. Round up a team and come compete. Well set up a relay row, where teams can place tents and have a great time. 
Millennium Meadows Marathon events occur at Secchia Meadows in Millennium Park, one of the many Kent County Parks and what we think is the most scenic and beautiful. You will run on a wide and paved path that crosses a footbridge, winds along the Grand River, and cuts through meadows. Most of the course is heavily shaded.
We are a proud supporter of the Kent County Parks Department and Team World Vision - Grand Rapids. Use our Donate button on the left menu, select which organization and follow the steps.
