Event Info.

Join us for one of the most historic runs in Kalamazoo; now a 37 year tradition, the John Daley Memorial One One Run has continued to help Kalamazoo kick off the new year moving in Spring Valley Park.

Get the whole family out moving!

Who was John Daley?  The founder of the Borgess Run for the
Health of It, right from the start John Daley was supportive of the One One Run,
founded by Chris Lampen-Crowell and Bruce Johnson of Gazelle Sports.
John’s love for the running community and his many contributions to the
community make him a beloved figure in local history!

Charlie Miller’s Chainsaw:  Only once was the One One Run threatened
by bad weather — an ice storm so severe that tree limbs and branches were
down all across Spring Valley Park.  Charlie Miller to the rescue!  As a memento
to his tireless work, the Chainsaw was “retired” and is now given every year to
a single individual, typically one who has the Charlie Miller spirit.  Who will it
be this year?

Pick Your Distance: This fun run features a 2.2 or 4.4 mile run.

Adults 18+: $30
Youth 13-17: $20
Kids 12 and under:  $10

Stay Home and Watch TV $25 — Start the year out right, supporting a great cause, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kalamazoo. 

Participants receive a custom-designed One One Run shirt*, bib and post-event celebration activities, including BONUS prizes. 

*Registration by December 31 ensures a shirt, and supplies often last for people who sign up on race day.

Finish in our big tent filled with food, music and fun! We’ll give away tons of prizes, and you may even win the coveted grand prize…Charlie Miller’s Chainsaw!

Running or walking are great activities that you can do on your own, but they are even more fun when you’re joined by family and friends. Our goal for the One One Run is always the same…get outside and start the year moving with family and friends while raising money for an important organization: Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kalamazoo.
