Saturday Runs

Sábados Grand Traverse: A Weekly Family Walk and Run To Support Active-For-Life Kids

What are families to do between bike and ski season in Northern Michigan? Run and walk, of course.

Here are our partners for Sábados: Traverse City Track Club, Running Fit, Northwestern Michigan College, Grand Traverse County Health and Wellness, and Michigan Runner Girl

Sábados Grand Traverse (SGT) is a family-friendly walking/running group at the Civic Center during the shoulder season where we get outside with friends, walk/run around in circles on the track, and have FUN.

November and December can be grim, but together we’ll encourage each other to get out and walk/run as a family for seven consecutive Saturdays for a good cause, Norte’s Youth Scholarship Fund.

We launch Sábados every fall as we prepare for the New Year’s Day Frozen Rabbit Race. It starts on the first Saturday after the Iceman Cometh. We meet at the Civic Center Wheelhouse at 10:00 am and then run. Easy.

Please check back as we approach autumn 2021 for further details.


Thank you to everyone who participated in 2020.

Run with you soon.
