The Scene

For this race, we’re going back to where the RD grew up, the beautiful city of Wyandotte, MI. A great historic city on the Detroit River. Wyandotte is part of the downriver community of cities.  

This running event is part of the very popular Celebrate Friday’s series that has become a major part of the city’s culture of celebrating local artists, musicians, and other festivities with local merchants.  

The event takes place at the old historic theater site right in the heart of Downtown Wyandotte. Registration/packet pickup, start and finish all using this venue.  

An exciting, scenic loop incorporates the entire Downtown, along with a run along the river, before making a loop through a residential section and then coming back through Downtown. A multi-loop course for those participating in the 10k and 15k distances, each time you pass the finish line your 5k split will be recorded. This is a very fast course. So come Downtown, have some fun and enjoy all that Wyandotte has to offer!

Free Community Meals for All - Pioneering a Community of Friendship
Waynewright Community Meals (aka the Wyandotte Soup Kitchen)

We are a free community meal and gathering place where we offer two meals per week on Wednesdays and Saturdays from, as well as a bagged lunch for our guests to take home for dinner. We are located in the fellowship hall of First Congregational Church, at 98 Superior, Wyandotte.

We have a no questions asked policy, so all are welcome regardless of residency or income. We serve everyone from those who are homeless to struggling families, seniors and the working poor. We typically serve an average of 35 guests per meal, but our numbers climb much higher depending on various circumstances, with some of our events finding us serve over 125. While we have many regulars, we do not just see the same guests each time - we have served hundreds of new people through the years. We continue to take opportunities to offer resources and programming for our guests and are always looking for other services that we can offer during our meal service, including nutrition courses, smart banking, free haircuts and enrichment opportunities.

We have no paid staff, so we depend solely on volunteers, civic groups, school and church groups, independent donations and surplus items to keep our operation afloat. We are truly a community effort, because we wouldn't exist without our community.
