With just 329 feet of an all-flat running course, Kalamazoo’s shortest “race” returns to the Kalamazoo Mall Sept. 22 to raise money for Hospice Care of Southwest Michigan.

The Point 1K Spoof Run begins at noon, with pre-race activities starting at 10 a.m. that include a scavenger hunt and Duck Derby raffle. There will also be live music, costume contests, a free kids fun run and other activities throughout the mall.

Registration is $25, and the first 500 to register receive a race T-shirt and swag. For additional race information or to register, visit point1k.com.
