The Super Run Comes to Ann Arbor

The Ann Arbor Mom blog is all about affordable family activities. It seems of late that my kids (now 8 & 10) are getting into more "active" activities and fewer of the free crafty things. As it happens my son has really begun enjoying the various runs around town. Put those two things together and what do you get? The Ann Arbor Super Run!

On Saturday, September 6 Ann Arbor (Specifically Gallup Park) will be over-run with super heroes fighting for a good deed. Families are encouraged to run (or walk) in the 1K or 5K. While there you will also find free activities for kids including bounce houses, face painting, DJ's, and magicians. Often too the vendors offer things like painting canvases, bubbles and stickers too!

Want to WIN free entry into the Super Run? Keep reading for details...

By the way if you are a local business that would like to promote yourself, I have been told that you may receive a free space so long as a family friendly activity or giveaway is provided!

Now a bit about the organization. The Super Run is a super hero themed family fun run, that partners with local charities to raise awareness and funds for their cause. For Ann Arbor, our Host charity is the Lutheran Social Services of Michigan, who seek every day superheros for the more than 13,000 foster children in Michigan. They have support from their partner charities: American Association for Cancer Research, Children's Hospitals National Foundation, and more.

As a parent I very much appreciate the price for this run too. For the bargain price of just $10 your children can participate in the 1K race PLUS they receive their own swag which includes an authentic super hero cape, a Super tattoo and a "Be a hero. Help a cause. Join the run." silicone awareness bracelet!

  1. Would love to do this with my kiddos! I am a supermom because I teach my kids to persevere.

  2. I am a supermom because everything that I do is for and about my son. This race is on his 11th birthday and we would love to do this as a family for his birthday. :) Thank You!
