Go The Extra Mile for Covenant Kids 2014 Overview

Go the Extra Mile for Covenant Kids is one facet of ongoing philanthropic activities in our community that support Covenant Kids, a dedicated fund specifically intended to enhance the care of children faced with hospitalization at Covenant HealthCare and their families.

New this year is a lower priced category for Youth runners aged 12 and under. Covenant has recognized the importance of keeping kids active and has created a Get Up and Move initiative to promote youth activity. As part of that initiative, Covenant is encouraging kids to Go The Extra Mile for their peers by making this event more accessible.

Course Description:

Covenant Kids half marathon, 5k run/walk, and 1 mile will highlight several of the bay region’s nicest features. This half marathon is a certified course by USATF and is flat and fast for those of you looking to PR. Heading south athletes will pass through the Kluck plant nursery and follow country roads to the Saginaw Valley Rail Trail. Enjoy the wonderful trail system as you loop through the township’s countryside before making your way back to the high school. Without the gracious welcome of the Saginaw County Rail Trail and Kluck's Nursery we would not be able to offer such a scenic and pristine race course. More info on the Saginaw Country Trail here. 5k run/walk athletes will follow the half marathon athletes before taking a north on Van Wormer Rd with a quick loop through the neighborhoods just north of the high school. 1 mile kids and families enjoy a flat out and back “fun run” on O'Hern Rd.
