Come out and join Michigan Trail Experience for the first MTE Hot Dog5. This is a 5-mile loop around Sleepy Hollow State Park with hot dogs waiting for you at the end. The park contains over 2,600 acres including a river winding its way through the woods. The course will take you through prairie grass fields, hardwood forest, and stands of pine trees. This event will be chip timed with a 10 min start window. The marked course is mostly flat with approximately 270 ft of total accent. Very nice trails for running. This would be a great warm up race for the fall season. All entries will receive a 5L gear dry bag and finisher patches. The race will start and finish at the beach parking lot. This is a pet friendly event. There will be regular and vegan hot dogs. Follow Michigan Trail Experience on Facebook for race updates and upcoming races
