Half Marathon will Close Roads to Showcase Rochester Hills to Runners

The Ninth Running of The Brooksie Way

On September 25, runners and walkers with lace up their shoes and head to Rochester Hills for the 9th Annual HAP Brooksie Way.

The HAP Brooksie Way, now in its ninth year has become one of the most popular regional fall half marathons. The course begins and ends at the Meadow Brook Amphitheatre (formerly known as the Meadow Brook Music Festival) on the campus of Oakland University and highlights some the great beauty of Rochester Hills including the Clinton River and the Paint Creek trail.

Runners and walkers who participated in the half marathon the past two years will note the course returns to the Tienken Road route. The course will feature a “rolling open and close,” allowing roads to remain open except for a period of time when runners and walkers are actually passing through.

“Whether you run, jog or walk, crossing that finish line is an experience you never forget,” states Mayor Bryan K. Barnett. “We’re proud to host the Brooksie Way and have the opportunity to show the participants just how beautiful our community is while promoting a healthy lifestyle.”

Proceeds from the race support local programs focusing on healthy and active lifestyles through Brooksie Way Minigrants. More than $155,000 has been donated to these grass-roots programs, with more grants awarded annually.
