WILLIAMSTON, Mich. — Always a family and runner favorite, the Hunger Heroes Race Series, to benefit local nonprofit Weekend Survival Kits, is happening on Saturday Morning, September 14th at McCormick Park in Williamston. “We are thrilled with the early sign-ups and look forward to having a great race series,” shared Race Director Traci Weston.

The 5K and 10K races, chip-timed, are great for runners of all skills – this is our run/walk which has a scenic route through the Williamston area. CrossFit is a popular fitness regime which has been paired with the 5K Route – we call it a 5K Gone Bad. Each CrossFit stop will be challenging and have a monitored physical challenge. CrossFit us your best!
