When & Where
The Bellin Run, a 10K held annually in Green Bay, Wisconsin on the second Saturday in June, is one of the region’s premier sporting events and has grown to be one of the largest 10K races in the nation.
The event was first held on June 12, 1977, and was known as the Bellin Heartwarming Run, to promote cardiovascular fitness. Intended to be a one-time event to celebrate an addition to Bellin Hospital, the run drew 881 participants and featured running great Frank Shorter. Early the next year, Bellin began receiving calls about the date for the next Bellin Run, so another was held – and a tradition was born.
In its 39 years, the Bellin Run has grown to inspire a growing number of individuals to engage in healthy habits. Those numbers have included running greats Frank Shorter, Bill Rodgers, Joan Benoit Samuelson, Meb Keflezighi, Ed Eyestone, Joseph Kimani, Uta Pippig, John Korir, and many more elite athletes and Olympians.
The date for this year's Bellin Run is Saturday, June 11th!
