Yes, it's boring, lame and overhyped

No, we need more coverage of self-important people

36 years and running (pardon the pun), and featuring the largest 25k road race in the country, 10k, 5k. Over 21,000 participants alone, not including spectators ... Promoting health and bringing people from all over the world to GR.

You're right, Maranda, nothing to see here. Maybe we should just hear more about GR's potholes and 30 degree weather in mid May :)

This is a well-organized, fun event. No surprise on this site someone would hate on it.

I'm tired of hearing about it. Does it merit a story? Sure. Is it worth 24 minutes of a 30-minute newscast or 11 articles in the same day's edition of the Grand Rapids Press? I don't think so.

Yes, I'm sick of it.

There's been way too much attention paid to this. It's just a bunch of people trying to get their faces on TV and get their 15 minutes of fame.

So train for it and run in it next time and you can get your 15 minutes of fame.

You could just change the channel on the TV.

The Grand Rapids Press?
I thought they went out of business.
