HAP Brooksie Way

The HAP Brooksie Way is one of Oakland County’s premier ​quality of life events. County Executive L. Brooks Patterson began the Brooksie Way races to promote Oakland County and encourage people to become more physically active.

Run, Walk, or Volunteer​

Participating in one of the many Brooksie Way activities or races, such as the HAP Brooksie Way Half Marathon, the Brooksie Way 10k, 5k or Fun Run, is fulfilling for all ages. Whether you run, jog or walk, the journey to crossing the finish line can be a life changing one. And if running isn't for you, volunteers are always needed to ke​ep the events running smoothly.
