Posted at 11:36 AM, Jun 13, 2016

See if you can beat your grandma in a race at Beat the Grandma 5k this Saturday, June 18.

All funds raised through the event will go towards the Old Fart's Running Club, helping out local high school teams.

The race will start at 1700 Butterworth Street SW in Grand Rapids.

Registration will take place at the starting line at 7:30 a.m. and cost $20. The race is limited to the first 300 runners.

The race will start at 9 a.m. Seniors will be first to take off at the starting line, then the younger runners will start the race 20 minutes after.

After the race there will be an award ceremony and cookies for all participants at the end of the race, that is if grandma doesn't beat you to them.
