All proceeds this year will benefit the Students in Transition Empowerment Program (STEP) at TCAPS—a free program administered by Traverse City Area Public Schools to help youth who lack fixed, regular and adequate housing. Currently, there are over 500 pre-K through 12th grade students in TCAPS experience periods of homelessness or do not have access to permanent housing.
The Crosstown Campus 10k race begins at 8 a.m. at West High School. Bussing will be provided so participants can park at West and be transported back to the start after the race. The event is open to any runner, regardless of whether or not they attended TCAPS schools. The registration fee is $20 until April 19, after which the price goes up to $25. Race day registration is $30.
Runners are encouraged to wear apparel and costumes supporting their favorite school. Prizes will be awarded for Best Titan School Spirit, Best Trojan School Spirit, Best Maverick School Spirit (for participants supporting Traverse City High School), Best Overall Spirit, Top Male Finisher, and Top Female Finisher.
