Beautiful course! The morning dew and fog lifting was gorgeous. The course was 3.3 miles on both my Map My Run and my buddy's fit bit. There were more hills than I expected, and that is a good thing. I really appreciated the red chalk on roots and rocks along the course. There were some areas (alongside the lake) where passing walkers was impossible.
You had the best post-race food options of any 5k I can remember.
I do wish the results were based on chip time, not gun time. With the grouped starts, my gun time is 3 minutes off.
Will be back next year.
This is my first year running. I would like to say wow. I really enjoy running it was just great. I will be back next year. I do like to say I'm not a pizza eater, but I could be the only one. The rest of the food was great. A big thinks to all.
This is the type of race that you can definitely tell was put on by runners. Every little detail was thought of. Very well done to ALL of you! Thank you!
Val, thank you for running this year. We hope to see you next year for both races.
Great event today Kevin. I’m not joking when I say this may be one of the best “organized” runs I’ve ever been to. The trail was very well marked and the volunteers did an amazing job. Also, your food spread was insane; I couldn’t believe I was standing with hot pizza and a cold beer at 8:15 in the morning!!! Again ... amazing job man. Kudos to you and your crew.
I'm glad you were able to come out this year. We look forward to seeing you in 2019!
This race course is beautiful and challenging! The sponsors and organizers are top-notch. We ran it as a family this year, with my son and our dog and we will definitely be back again!! Do not miss this one!!
The Brainy Day was my first trail running event and I am so glad I did it! What an awesome experience! The course was great and all the participants and organizers made me feel welcome and supported. My dog even won a medal! Terrific Day for us all 🙂
This was mine and my friend Jackie's first 5k ever - let alone a trail run! The group is wonderful and Veronica is GREAT!!! Thank you for having this locally and so friendly! We'll be back next year.
The Brainy Day 5K is the BEST trail run in West Michigan; it's a must RUN. The trails are so well groomed and it sure beats the pavement! I have run it several years and find the route to be beautiful, challenging and fun!
Great course.......if you run or walk you will enjoy the scenery. Make sure to bring you dog.......they will enjoy also. Lots of fun and you will be running/walking for a very good cause.........STARS-kids.
“First time running the Brainy Day. Awesome trail. Definitely returning next year.”
