The event is chip-timed by Race Day Events.  To limit social gathering because of the ongoing COVID-19, we will not have awards for age groups this year.  However, all participants will receive a finishers medal and bib numbers will be put into a drawing for prizes that can be picked up right after you finish the race.  

Virtual Option
If you still don’t find yourself comfortable running in person, sign up anyway. We’ll mail you your race packet after race day.   You may do your virtual race anytime between March 29 – December 1, 2021.  Just register for this event.  Choose your date.  Run or walk a 5k (3.1 miles).  Share your photos with us on our FACEBOOK  pages:  Grand Traverse Lighthouse Museum and/or Friends of Leelanau State Park.  We will begin shipping packets after June 1st for virtual registrants.

2021 COVID-19 STUFF – You’ll need to wear masks before the race starts and after you’re done when you’re around people. We will be doing a “rolling start” so you’re not all bunched up. 

NOTE–IF THE WHOLE STATE OF MICHIGAN IS IN A STATE OF EMERGENCY AND NOTHING IS ALLOWED TO HAPPEN ANYWHERE, WE WILL GIVE YOU THE OPTION TO TRANSFER TO THE VIRTUAL OPTION OR DEFER TO 2022.  

Course
The course will start of the Leelanau State Park Trailhead (next to Woolsey Airport, Densmore Rd.) winding through hills and flat terrain and along Mud Lake towards Lake Michigan.  The final course map will be available closer to the date.  There will be two aid stations plus the finish line area.
