Granger Paths 5k Canceled for 2021


Letter from Friends of Granger Paths Board:

At the heart of what we do, Friends of Granger Paths is dedicated to bettering our community. Because of the COVID 19 impact, we feel the neighborly thing to do is to cancel our 5K and Family Fun Run. We are currently working on planning for new events.

Hopefully, the social distancing won’t still be required in May. However, our 5K is a fundraiser that makes money off of corporate sponsorships. The money we receive from actual registrants barely covers the cost to host the race. Since so many of our local businesses are closed or hurting right now, we cannot ask them for donations now or even six months from now. We are offering all our current sponsors a refund of their generous donations or the option to continue with their sponsorship but put the money towards the race in 2021. For 15 years, we have been supported by multiple Michiana businesses big and small. We are canceling this year’s race in solidarity with them.

The same goes for our runners who have already registered. We are offering full refunds (minus the transaction fee) unless they choose to defer their payment to the next year’s race.

Even in these trying times, we encourage you all to continue being a good neighbor, and we encourage you to use our paths! The City of South Bend says that you CAN go outside during a “watch” travel advisory. Feel free to walk your dog, ride your bike, or take a jog along the Granger Paths. Just remember to avoid congregating in groups, stay six feet away from others, and always cover coughs or sneezes.

Stay home and stay healthy!

Your Friends of Granger Paths Board


Participants already registered for the 2020 Race:

We will begin processing refunds on April 6, 2020. If you would like to defer your registration to 2021 or if you would like to donate your 2020 entry fee to Friends of Granger Paths, please email by April 3, 2020.  All registered participants that have not arranged for a deferral or a donation by April 3 will receive a refund of their registration fee minus the transaction fees.
