HOLLAND – Hope College will feature a 50K recreational bike ride and a chip-timed, competitive 5K run, both open to all ages, on Saturday, Oct. 13, in the morning.
Each event will begin and end at Holland Municipal Stadium, with the run finishing across the 50-yard line. The two activities have been scheduled in conjunction with the college’s Homecoming Weekend, and registration is open to the general community.
