Informazioni Pulse 3 Foundation Run For Your Heart

Run for Your Heart is more than a road race. It is an opportunity to create a community that is healthy and vibrant. It is about fighting heart disease – the #1 killer – in the Great Lakes Bay Region.

The courses have both an urban and park-like flair as racers travel through city streets, the nationally accredited Children’s Zoo at Celebration, several parks, and alongside the riverbanks of the Saginaw River. Racers also will enjoy entertainment and cheering sections throughout the course. (Please be aware that because of course congestion, strollers are not allowed. Thank you for your understanding.)

Our goal is to create a race that will bring you back year after year and it is working! But don’t only take our word for it. Take a look at just a few of the comments we received from our post-race survey:

Michigan CardioVascular Institute



Starting at the Michigan CardioVascular Institute, runners will travel through Hoyt Park and will "run with the animals" in the nationally accredited Children's Zoo at Celebration Square. You will experience a gradual elevation change as you cross over the Saginaw River. This USATF-certified course will also take runners through Celebration Square, Old Town Business District, Wickes Park, picturesque Ojibway Island, and the Saginaw Riverwalk. Roads on the course will be closed entirely to allow racers safe passage.


On the day of the event, runners will line up at line up at the starting line at the offices of the Michigan CardioVascular Institute, just off Remington Street and Washington Avenue.

From there, the course follows an out-and-back route through the streets of Saginaw, first through the newly renovated Hoyt Park and then along an out-and-back stretch along Wickespark Drive, which runs alongside the Saginaw River.

Later stretches of the race unfold through Saginaw’s Old Town business district, Wickes Park and Rust Park, Celebration Square and Ojibway Island near the end of the race, as runners are making their way through the final mile along the Saginaw Riverwalk back to MCVI for the race finish.

There’s also a long out-and-back stretch along Court Street, which takes runners through the residential neighborhoods that lead up to Arthur Hill High School, which is mostly flat and fast.
