Event Itinerary

Come have some fun with Girls on the Run Saginaw Bay as we partner with Positive Results Downtown Saginaw for this 10th annual event! Participants will run/walk the 3.1 miles of streets just in front of the Positive Results Downtown Saginaw Parade as Girls on the Run Saginaw Bay participants complete their season finale 5K! All participants receive reindeer antlers, but we encourage you to wear festive attire too!

Participants will finish at the Andersen Enrichment Center (120 Ezra Rust, Saginaw) where the finish line will greet them with hot chocolate, shopping at the Downtown Saginaw Farmer's Market winter market, an amazing display of cookie houses inside the Center, and a great front row view of the Holiday Parade! 

Registration will take place at the Castle Museum (500 Federal Avenue, Saginaw, MI 48607) beginning at 9am the day-of the event and the music of High Fidelity Entertainment will be revving up the crowd in the parking lot of Wigen Tincknell Meyer & Associates Architecture Firm (100 S. Jefferson Avenue, Saginaw, MI 48607) before the race!   

The 2019 run will begin at the Castle Museum, head north on Jefferson, left (west) on Genesee, left (south) on Washington Avenue, make a loop in Hoyt Park by the Veteran's Memorial Park, head west on Ezra Rust, left (south) on Fordney, then finish on the lawn of the Andersen Enrichment Center.
