About This Event:
The Kal-Haven Trail Run is a well-respected event that offers a competitive ultra-run and allows participants from all fitness levels to be involved as a solo runner, 2-person relay, or 3-6 person relay team. Challenging trail runs are empowering and uniquely satisfying to all of those that participate. The KAR Kal-Haven Ultra Run will be held on the Kal-Haven Trail State Park, offering a scenic run from Kalamazoo to Bloomingdale and back. This year is unique because the trail is closed from Bloomingdale to South Haven, so it is an “out and back” run with a celebration in Bloomingdale as a turn-around point. The six aid stations provide hydration and snacks that are designed to address runner sustenance needs based on their run distance. These stations also provide runners with relay points and unique rejuvenation; while also supporting an opportunity for “fans” to support them. For the first time this year, the event will feature expo booths to connect runners to industry partners who showcase their runner and health products. It’s a day that is sure to be challenging, yet fun. The scenic route as an out and back makes for a predictable run where the runners can run on autopilot and not have to focus on where to turn along the course. Unique this year, runners will be able to cheer on other runners as they turn around and head back.
