Moovin’ Thru the Midway 5K 2024

Lace up your sneakers and join us for the Annual Michigan State Fair 5K Race/Walk to benefit Military Families United! Run (or walk!) past the big tent, rides, and the excitement of the midway on Saturday, August 31st at 8 am. Registration is open now, so sign up today!

The Moovin’ thru the Midway 5K Presented by Wells Fargo debuted at the Michigan State Fair in 2019. This one of a kind race takes runners and participants of all ages and abilities on an immersive course through the Michigan State Fairgrounds, including the Circus Tent, Carnival Midway, even interior vendor exhibits! The course finishes at the Beer Tent where participants are rewarded with medals, a sponsor branded photograph, and light refreshments. In addition to these finishing perks, participants are provided a Complimentary Ultimate Wristband and a Moovin’ thru the Midway 5K Presented by Wells Fargo dry fit T-shirt. In 2020 the Moovin’ thru the Midway 5K transitioned to a Virtual platform where participants were able to run or walk the race at home or a location of their choice. This virtual element will remain in place in addition to the in person race. If participating virtually, participants are mailed a Race Kit with their “Swag” and are able to submit a photo to receive a branded photo that they can share on Social Media.  The Moovin’ thru the Midway 5K Presented by Wells Fargo benefits our Non-Profit Partner, Military Families United.
