Winter Blast is Not a Forecast, It’s a 5k, 10k and 1/2 Marathon Run in Portage

Icicles will be hanging from eyebrows, beards and mustaches at the 2017 Portage Winter Blast, Sunday, February 26.

Get off the treadmill and get outside at the Portage Winter Blast on Sunday, February 26. Runners can choose a distance of 5k, 10k or the 1/2 marathon, depending on how long you want to be out in the elements.

This race proves that runners stay conditioned all year and will do anything to get off the treadmill, even in the middle of a Michigan Winter. So bundle up and join your friends from Kalamazoo Area Runners in the City of Portage.

Staying warm at home but live in the area near Portage Central High School? Be sure to see if road closures will affect your Sunday morning plans.
