Can You Beat the Train?
Beat the Train 5K is back on Saturday, November 4, 2023, starting and finishing in Coopersville, MI.
Ride the Train To The Start, Race The Train Back To Town
Ever dream of going toe to toe with a TRAIN?
Make your dreams a reality and register to race the Coopersville/Marne locomotive on Saturday, November 4, 2023. We are back to boarding the train in Coopersville this year! You do have the option to be dropped off at the start if you wish.
The train speed is going to be based on the average estimated finish time of ALL registrants. All runners are asked for their estimated finish time when they register. If we add up 300 estimated finish times, divide by 300, and the average is 25 minutes, then it will take the train about 25 minutes from start to finish.
Regardless of your pace, get ready for your best 5K time ever, we can almost guarantee it! All finishers receive a finisher medal.
