The Visser Family YMCA Buck Creek Run,  presented by First United Credit Union, is part of the City of Grandville 4th of July celebrations.    Buck Creek Run began in 1974 as a way to add a healthy event to the 4th of July events and get people active. The course winds around the neighborhoods of Grandville and ends at the Grandville Middle School.    The Buck Creek Run proceeds provide scholarships for the Visser Family YMCA Impact Achievers Program - an afterschool program for Grandville, Jenison and Hudsonville middle-school students.

An in-person Buck Creek Run is being planned for Saturday, July 2.       The health and safety of our race participants, staff, spectators, and volunteers is our number one priority.   We can all do this safely and show support of the Y. 

  • Please register by June 15 to be guaranteed a t-shirt.    
  • Online registration will remain open until the 8am start of the 5K and 9am for the Kid's Dash - plan to register on your home computer before arriving or your phone on-site.
