LOOKING FOR THAT NEXT COOL SHIRT
It’s time for the next cool Holland Hospital Park2Park shirt design. Can you help us with your idea for the 2013 shirt?
The Holland Hospital Park2Park ½ Marathon & 5K will call the Ottawa County Fairgrounds home on September 28. In November, the Ottawa County Fair board agreed to the race team’s proposal to host the race at the fairgrounds. The 2012 Holland Hospital Park2Park attracted 1,792 runners in the race’s 8th
year raising funds for local nonprofit Neighbors Plus.
“The committee is
very excited about this new partnership with the Ottawa County Fair,” says
Sherrie Kornoelje Santos, Holland Hospital Park2Park Race Director. “The
race has outgrown the facilities of Harderwyk Ministries even though we were graciously allowed us to use every square inch over the past 8 years,” added Kornoelje Santos. “It is exciting to have a much larger location that will work well for a new course and allows easier access and parking for runners. We think runners will love it.” The 2013 race will be held on Saturday, September 28, with the ½ marathon starting at 8 a.m. and the 5K at 8:15 a.m.
Online registration for the event will open on January 8.

New 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).
New 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!
