Experience the beauty of southwest Michigan's agricultural heart as you run past fragrant vineyards, hops fields, and rich farmland between Stevensville and Baroda, Michigan.The course starts and ends at the same place, looping around the countryside.

The half-marathon route is mainly flat, but there are some climbs along the way to add some challenge.The 5K route is a great way for both runners and walkers to get some endorphins in early and use that energy throughout the rest of the day!
