The Lake Michigan RTS 10k is SOLD OUT. We hope that you consider volunteering for this year's event, instead.

The Lake Michigan RTS combines Road, Trail, and Sand to provide a truly unique 10K experience along the Lake Michigan shoreline. Whether you’re a road racer looking to mix things up a bit, an avid trail runner, or just a glutton for punishment, this course has something for you.

Questions? Contact the Race Director here.

Your course begins on the rural roads of Laketown Township, making its way to a wooded trail. You will wind your way up, down, and around the woods that separate the road from the Lake Michigan until you feel the ground beneath you transition from dirt to sand. You will begin to make your way up and then down the Lake Michigan coast until you arrive at the giant double bowl dune. The reward for successfully climbing this beast is a breathtaking view of Lake Michigan, so be sure to turn around and take in the majesty of this Great Lake! Once you’ve caught your breath, it’s time to head straight back down the backside of the dune, back through the woods, and along the road back to the start.

This course is not for the faint of heart and we ask that only those who plan to run the majority of the course attend - there is a 3 hour time limit for this event. But if you’re able to conquer the rugged terrain, you will see why this has often been called “The toughest race you’ll ever love!”

**All proceeds of this event go to Helen DeVos Children's Hospital Foundation
