Since 1970 kids in Michigan have been getting their first
experience running a race in the New Year's Eve Family Fun
Run and Walk on Belle Isle in Detroit. Every kid who finishes
the one mile race gets a trophy to go along with the memory.
It's not unusual to see three generations participating in
the one mile run or walk, the 4 mile run or walk or both.

This year, Fifth Third Bank, with a track record of supporting
memorable Michigan races, is presenting sponsor for this
traditional event. Belle Isle, Detroit's historic island
park designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, has undergone a
recent face lift. Belle Isle Runners host and Jeanne Bocci,
as she has from the beginning, directs.
