On the 10k course, you'll catch the quiet of rural roads, the twists and turns of natural wooded trails, then the challenge and reward of a dune climb that will take your breath away- literally!
To ensure a safe in-person event, we will be capping each start window to ensure our ability to provide a safe experience for all participants, staff and volunteers.
***NOTE: All runners will be assigned a wave start time.
Registration opens at 9:00am on May 1, 2021, and it will sell out. Bookmark this page, and set your alarm!
Lake Michigan RTS combines Road, Trail, and Sand to provide a truly unique race 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 running adventurer, either course has something for you.
The best part? All proceeds benefit P.O.R.T. through Helen DeVos Children's Hospital Foundation.
Please be aware that this is a challenging race- it will start out on the road, head into hilly trails, and through soft dune sand at a steep incline.
A special thanks to Michigan Awesome as our presenting partner for Lake Michigan RTS 2021!
