Friday5K has moved to...


Participation is FREE, no cost to the participants. Friday5K has discontinued the pursuit of contributions for the 2020 season and intends to provide 10 self-timed events.


The cornerstone of is to provide FREE races to individuals, but you must register on this website.  It is FREE to register and you only have to do it once in your life.  



An inviting series of 5Ks that strives to give you something in this uncertain environment, on one of West Michigan's most scenic courses.


Hint: Self timed races end on prime numbered Fridays.


What is a prime number?

A number evenly divisible by only itself and one.  So let me help you.  If a Friday, during the race season, falls on any of the following dates [2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, or 31, and sometimes 1*] there will be a Friday 5K.

*Technically 1 is not a prime number as it is only divisible by itself, but some learned it as a prime number so occasionally Friday5K gives it honorary prime number status.
