Mercy Health Oktoberfest Marathon Half Marathon 5K
Welcome to the Mercy Health, Armed Services Marathon, 1/2 Marathon & 5K
Entering its 15th year, the Armed Services Marathon, 1/2 Marathon & 5K is now scheduled for SUNDAY, MAY 22, 2022. WE ARE ALSO VERY EXCITED TO SHARE THAT OUR NEW VENUE IS AT THE GRAND HAVEN HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL STADIUM. In meeting with the leadership at the high school, we could not be more excited with the enthusiasm and pro-active support displayed by them. This event is also embraced and supported by the Township of Grand Haven, Ottawa County Sheriff Department and Ottawa County Road Commission. All the event distances will start AND finish on the track inside the football stadium. This event is also one of the most scenic courses in West Michigan. 97% of the course is run on bike paths and the 3% of roads you run on have VERY little traffic. This event will make contributions to the West Michigan and original founding chapter of FOLDS OF HONOR (Click on their tab, above). In addition to enjoying one of the most scenic venues, other amenities you’ll enjoy include a long sleeve “Dri-Fit” tech shirt, event bag with logo, custom finisher medal, and custom overall and age group awards to name a few.
