CONGRATS RUNNERS!

Watch as Lou E. Loon gives everyone a sneak peek of the course for the Loons Pennant Race. Participants will get to start and finish inside of Dow Diamond. They also receive tickets to the game with a chance to meet The Office star, Brian Baumgartner (Kevin Malone) and access to the on-field Extra Innings concert featuring Jedi Mind Trip!

We’re moving our annual race to late August to join the Great Lakes Loons as they make a “RUN FOR THE PENNANT!”

Join us for one of the last nights in the ballpark for the 2019 season as the Loons battle the West Michigan Whitecaps! An entire night of racing, baseball, music and family fun!

THE OFFICE NIGHT!

Bring on out your JELL-O molded staplers, it’s The Office Night!

Leslie David Baker (Stanley Hudson) will make a special appearance!

Get into the spirit by dressing up as your favorite Office character! Throw on a Schrute Farms sweatshirt or wear your commemorative “Michael Scott's Dunder Mifflin Scranton Meredith Palmer Memorial Celebrity Rabies Awareness Pro-Am Fun Run Race for the Cure” t-shirt.

You can even watch the Rabies Awareness Fun Run Episode as part of your “training” (*hint season 4, episode 2). We just don’t recommend Michael’s race day routine!
