2017 Race Registration

2017 Registration is now open!

The Fifth Third Capital City River Run features a half marathon, 5K and relay — all family friendly events benefitting Lansing’s Impression 5 Science Center, Lansing Promise, Friends of the Lansing River Trail and Team Lansing Foundation. The Run will take you along the Lansing River Trail and through several scenic parks. The race starts in front of Cooley Law School Stadium and finishes on the field, home to the Lansing Lugnuts.

Half marathon, relay and 5K finishers receive a sweatshirt and medal. Kids Race participants receive a short sleeve cotton T-shirt and medal.

Our objective is to celebrate, build awareness and financially support the institutions in the Greater Lansing community that further education, encourage the desire to learn and promote healthy lifestyles.

These efforts are realized by consistent community involvement, loyal and determined participants, volunteers and sponsors.
