Join us for a scenic half marathon and 5k running race in Glen Arbor, Michigan. The half marathon will take runners around Big Glen Lake in a clockwise loop, starting and finishing near downtown Glen Arbor. Runners ascend Inspiration Point on the south side of Big Glen Lake where they will experience one of the most spectacular views of Leelanau County. The 5k course is flat and fast, and will take runners through tree-lined roads near downtown Glen Arbor.
Can't make it to join us on race day, but still want to be a part of the event? We've added a new virtual race option for you. Wanna run on a Tuesday at noon? No problem. Weather outlook looking better for Friday evening? Go run! Run the race course any time you want in the two weeks leading up to the event and submit your time to be entered in the official virtual results. The best part is that you still get to come join the post race fun on race day! You're invited to come cheer on other runners and celebrate your finish with everyone on race morning. If you join us on race day you can pick up your shirt and finisher medal there, otherwise we'll mail those out to you after the race. This is a great way to be a part of the race and make it fit with your schedule.
