The Big Bird Run has something for everyone: a 10K, 4K, & 1 Mile Fun Run. Last year this annual charity run brought together over 700 runners of all ability levels and ages to participate in this fun community event. Longtime sponsors of the Big Bird Run include: Petitpren Distributors, Inc., Hanson’s Running Shops, Randazzo’s Fruit Markets, Sam’s Club and State Farm Insurance just to name a few. Prizes are given to winners in separate age divisions for each race, including over 28 age divisions in the 10K run!

Participating in the Big Bird Run will provide you with fun and fitness as well as the knowledge you are helping many families and students in the Roseville & Eastpointe community. The Big Bird Run began 39 years ago as a fundraiser to assist local community service organizations with their causes. Proceeds from the Big Bird Run are given to the local community service organizations that provide volunteers to coordinate the event. These organizations in turn assist local families and students in need.

  • Roseville/Warren Kiwanis Club
