Grand Rapids is a city of runners.  Almost every weekend, there is a race in or around Grand Rapids.  From the huge Fifth Third River Bank Run a few weeks ago to smaller events, if you are a runner or thinking about taking the sport up, take a look at the Library’s running or jogging resources, including online access to Runner’s World.
