Register now for Stafford’s Top of Michigan Charlevoix to Harbor Springs Marathon

A 10K Run and 10K non-competitive walk planned for this spring will raise funds for Petoskey’s track and cross country teams and the Top of Michigan Trails Council.

The run/walk will begin in Petoskey at the Top of Michigan Trails Council’s new Trails Center, located at 1687 M-119, and will finish in Harbor Springs.

 

The inaugural Stafford’s Top of Michigan Community Marathon is scheduled for Saturday, May 28.

The marathon starts in Charlevoix and follows Little Traverse Wheelway along Lake Michigan through Bay Harbor and Petoskey, with the finish line in Harbor Springs.

The event will benefit the Petoskey High School Track and Cross Country Teams, as well as Top of Michigan Trails Council.

The Wheelway, which comprises a majority of the 26.2 mile route, is one of the premier routes in the Trails Council’s inventory of trails.

This marathon course is relatively flat and offers spectacular views of Lake Michigan and Little Traverse Bay.

The course is USATF certified, and offers an excellent venue for runners stepping up to a marathon or for seasoned runners looking for a fast time.

 

Participants in the 10K will receive a race T-shirt. Registration is required for both runners and walkers in the 10K event.

A pre-race dinner will be offered to marathoners on Friday, May 27 in Charlevoix.

Shuttle service will be available both before and after the race.

Online registration for the marathon and 10K can be completed at www.active.com (search CHARLEVOIX COMMUNITY).

For more information, contact race director Jim Harrington at 989-619-4204 or email him at jharrington10@gmail.com.
