How the Park Escape Works


  • Register for your choice of sites. You can visit any or all for just $30.00!

  • T-shirts, medals, and bibs will be available for pick up at Playmakers by May 20. If you pay for shipping, you will receive your free items by May 26.

  • Visit your selected sites from Thursday, May 20 - Thursday, May 27. Show the event bib for free park entry and parking.

  • While at a site, choose from one or more of the trails and run or walk any distance you'd like. Be sure to post a photo and tag #playmakersfit!

  • After you complete each park, be sure to submit your mileage on our website so you can compare your stats to others in the Park Escape!

Packet pick up is Thursday, May 20 from 11am-7pm.  Pick up your t-shirt, medal and race bib in the Community Room at Playmakers 2299 W Grand River, Okemos 48864. After Thursday, you can pick up your swag at the front counter during regular business hours until June 20. 

If you paid to have your swag mailed, it should arrive Friday or Saturday in the mail. If you want to visit a park before you receive your bib, follow this link for instructions on how to print one off and take it with you!
