Moonlight Bootlegger 5k - Northville, MI

Fri July 31 - Sun August 2 Northville, MI 48167 US Directions
Important Event Update
We finally have permission to host an in-person event! This will be significantly different than what was originally planned for this race, but we are moving ahead and excited to be offering something more than virtual! 
The race will be split into 3 separate races on 3 different days to comply with the current Michigan State Park regulations regarding the group event limit to 100 participants. Strict mask and social distancing requirements will be in place and there will be no pre or post race entertainment. Each race will be treated as a completely separate event in terms of awards. Here are the race dates:
  • Friday, July 31st, 9:00pm
  • Saturday, August 1st, 9:00pm
  • Sunday, August 2nd, 8:00am
If you were already registered for the race, you can log into your registration and switch to the event of your choice. There will also be a virtual option if you are not comfortable participating in person.
