Westfield, IN - Westfield Welcome continues its Memorial Day tradition this year with the 9th annual Grand Run, presented by STAR Bank, on Monday, May 29th. Grand Run is a 5k, 10k, half marathon, and a special kid’s fun run at Grand Park Sports Campus. 

Runners will use Westfield’s expansive trail system winding through Grand Park, and half-marathon participants will enjoy a northern scenic stretch of the Monon Trail. The kid’s fun run will take place inside the Grand Park Events Center.

Online registration is open now, and pricing varies per race. The kid’s fun run is free, but registration is required. New this year is the option to add on a kid’s participant t-shirt for $8. Prices will increase on race morning. Donations received from Grand Run directly support Helping Veterans and Families (HVAF), an organization dedicated to ending homelessness among veterans.

“We are honored that runners, walkers, and their families spend Memorial Day with us to help raise funds for such an important cause. Grand Run has become an annual tradition for so many, and we love to see it grow each year,” said Kayla Arnold, Director of Westfield Welcome.
