K9K Race

On February 25, 2012, Andrew Elliott Rusticus went on a training run as part of an agility test to be a K9 handler with the Grand Rapids Police Department. He suffered a heart attack and ran into the arms of Jesus. His dedication to his faith, devotion to his family, love of friends, and unwavering, humble desire to serve his community with his fellow police officers is being remembered and honored during this event. Police officers skills, thoughtfulness, and willingness to serve are all part of their daily duties to our community. A K9 officer and his canine partner develop a close bond while carrying out these responsibilities. This event will give runners the opportunity to run a 9k or a 3k (with or without your canine on either event) along the banks of the Grand River.

    Running is the world’s most accessible sport. Park runs, colour runs, 5k, 10k, half marathons, marathons and ultras — all you need is a pair of trainers and off you go. Running events are hugely popular on Let’s Do This and it’s a sociable sport, so get some friends involved and achieve something extraordinary.

    If you’re starting small, the 5k and 10k events are great fun and definitely worth doing even if you’re training for a bigger challenge further down the line. Getting used to the atmosphere of an event is important. You’re so much more likely to hit a better time if there’s a crowd cheering you on, people in fancy dress and a big celebration at the finish line.
