GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.--  It's ArtPrize meets the Amazing Race.

The sixth annual Michigan Adventure Race: ArtPrize Edition presented by Spectrum Health and Community West Credit Union will be held October 8, 2016 in Grand Rapids.

The part bike, part running and walking race will weave through the massive art festival and feature mental and/or physical challenges, many related to the ArtPrize exhibits and venues.

Two-person teams begin at Ah-Nab-Awen Park in downtown Grand Rapids and bike or run/walk to checkpoints pre-marked on a map – kept secret until just before the race – collecting as many points as they can within four hours.

One hundred percent of the funds raised will go toward Purple Community, which supports biomedical research in the fight against cancer and neurodegenerative diseases at the Van Andel Institute.

Registration ends Wednesday, October 5th.
