Metro Health Grand Rapids Marathon

Grand Rapids, Michigan

While the river view from the historic Sixth Street Bridge is soothing, the real treat is navigating the path through Millennium Park. Michigan’s autumn colors are enhanced as they're reflected in the four lakes along the course. Bonus: Thanks to the flat terrain, almost 20 percent of runners here qualify for the Boston Marathon.(grandrapidsmarathon.com)
