About Park2Park Run Roeland Park

The Park2Park 1/2 Marathon course starts and ends at the Ottawa County Fairgrounds and includes scenic views of Lake Macatawa, Holland State Park, and Lakeshore Drive. September temperatures are just right for a half – with an average chance for some automatic sweat relief (otherwise known as rain … some years heavier than others).

The 5k run in Waukazoo Woods that starts and ends at the Ottawa County Fairgrounds.

What else is there to look forward to? The end and the Park2Park signature MEATBALLS! (Yes, there are other options.)

Enjoy a weekend in friendly and quaint Holland, Michigan, located on the west coast of Lake Michigan 2 1/2 hours north of Chicago. Holland is the home of Tulip Time, wooden shoes, Hope College, Holland State Park, vibrant downtown shopping and eating, and the Park2Park!
