    UPDATE: THE RACE IS NOW ALL VIRTUAL. Use #MRTR2020 to post photos of you and your family or friends running for a chance to win prizes. More info to come. 

    Welcome to 22nd annual VIRTUAL 5K Race and Kids K Fun Run thru downtown Rockford. If you registered prior to July 1st, you will need to pick up your race packet on August 14 from 4:30-7:00pm or email info@mitchellsrun.org to make alternate plans.

    Mitchell's Run Thru Rockford (MRTR) was organized to benefit Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy (PPMD). Mitchell Peterson, and many other boys and some girls from West Michigan have been diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. All race proceeds will be donated to PPMD in Mitchell's honor, to END DUCHENNE. This is a fun, family event, with live music and a festive atmosphere. The course runs through scenic Rockford and along The White Pine Trail!!!! Superheros and Disney Princesses will be available for photographs at the race again this year!

    Each registered virtual 5K ($25 - pick up your own packet on August 14) participant will receive a Mitchell's Run Race Tee, race bib, a finisher medal and 80’s swag.

    Each registered Kids K participant will receive a Mitchell's Run Race Tee, race bib, finisher medal and 80’s swag. 

    Each Virtual 5K $30 participant will be mailed a race packet with our MRTR Race Tee, Race Bib and Medal prior to the event. Registration is now closed for mailed packets.

    *In the event that our live race should be cancelled, we will immediately switch to a virtual event. Sorry, no refunds as our event is a fundraiser. We will host a social distanced packet pick up if necessary.

For the love of all that is good and moisture wicking...

Though we try to be accurate and on top of things... Race details can change when we aren't lookin. And once in a while we simply make a mistake.

ALWAYS visit the race's website for the most complete and accurate race information.
