Fun opportunity to explore the Island! August 31, 2019 is the day of three great races. Our half marathon, 10 K and 5 K. All three races begin at the public beach and end at the public beach; but in between, you will see amazing scenery, wildlife, and flora. We have participant medals for every runner/walker, plus prizes for first place in all age categories for the ½ marathon. There will be refreshments at the finish line in addition to music by the band Legal Immigrants. The band will also perform at the Shamrock that night. Come to Beaver Island and run, then relax on our very special island.

The proceeds go to help support The Beaver Island Cultural Arts Association. In the past we have also given to the Beaver Island Rural Health Center. The registration link can be found at beaverisland.org. You will also find everything you need to know about getting to Beaver Island and accommodations. Please join us! You will be glad you did!
