The one place people can go right now with few restrictions in the great outdoors. Grand Rapids Running Tours is making running and walking around the city more exciting and informative with a variety of tours, including a tour showing off the painted utility boxes featuring the Rad American Women Project.

Rad American Women began as great accomplishments of females across the country, with their accomplishments and stories captured in a children's book. Then the book came alive in Grand Rapids, painted on outdoor utility boxes throughout the downtown area.

The tour will take walkers and runners past the 27 pieces of urban artwork, located on almost every intersection of downtown Grand Rapids.

Rad American Women A-Z Walking Tours will meet in the center of Rosa Parks Circle at the following dates and times:

  • August 14, 9-11:30 a.m.
  • September 3, 12-2:30 p.m.
  • September 8, 9-11:30 a.m.
  • September 16, 5:30-8 p.m.
  • September 20, 4-6:30 p.m.
