St. Patrick’s Day fun: Spectrum Health’s Irish Jig 5K

irish jig


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOTV) – Start your running season with Spectrum Health. Now in its 34th year, the Irish Jig has grown to become one of Michigan’s premier 5K races. The USA Track & Field certified course is mostly flat with a few gentle hills. Top age group winners receive prizes and top overall finishers receive cash awards.

New this year, wheelchair and hand-cycle participants are invited to register in the exhibition divisions. We will also be hosting a costume contest so come dressed in your best ensemble.

Spectrum Health is proud to provide this event to promote colorectal cancer awareness. 6 in 10 people are diagnosed with colon cancer too late, after it has spread. For the 1 in 3 still unscreened now there is a routine blood test option available to determine if you have colorectal cancer.
