Inaugural SPEEDWAY STOMP™ 5K set for Friday, May 8
Michigan International Speedway will host the inaugural SPEEDWAY STOMP™ 5K on Friday, May 8, the day before this year’s Michigan Wine and Beer Fest presented by Experience Jackson.
The 3.1-mile run around portions of the MIS oval and through parts of its historic grounds will serve as a lead-in event the evening before the May 9 wine and beer fest.
Cost is $45 per runner and includes an inaugural finisher’s medal, commemorative event shirt, official timing and scoring bib and results and a ticket to the May 9 Michigan Wine and Beer Fest presented by Experience Jackson. (Please note: Any age may enter the SPEEDWAY STOMP™, but only guests 21 and older may use the ticket to the wine fest.)
The SPEEDWAY STOMP™ will begin at 7 p.m.; registration opens at 5 p.m. that day.
“MIS is so excited to open our beautiful facility to yet another new event to bring tourism to the Irish Hills,” track President Roger Curtis said. “The STOMP 5K adds even more fun to the Michigan Wine and Beer Fest and includes a wine and beer fest ticket. In addition to running on parts of the historic oval and our park-like grounds, it will be a unique evening run experience and participants can even camp here at MIS.”
The race will be limited to the first 1,000 participants, and organizers expect to be at capacity. The top-finishing male runner and female runner will each receive an award.
Registration the day of the event, if not sold out in advance, will be $50.
There will be spectator viewing areas along the course.
