The roads close off to incoming traffic at 7:15 a.m. Music plays and people line up at the starting line. Excitement is in the air as runners and walkers arrive to pick up their racing bib and prepare for the race.
On Sept. 30, the fifth annual Brooksie Way Half Marathon will provide a challenging trek through Rochester, starting and ending on OU’s campus at Meadow Brook Music Festival.
“We think (having Brooksie Way) is a great health and wellness initiative for OU and Oakland County,” said Campus Recreation Director Greg Jordan. “It’s great to host a fun and healthy event on campus.”
