Special Iron Belle Plaques are available for the top Male and Female winners in the following categories - Overall, Masters and Grand Masters.

Runners will traverse the historic park grounds on a paved path that is part of Michigan's Iron Belle Trail. This historic park was once the horse ranch of the World Heavy Weight Boxing Champion Joe Louis and later served as a NIKE Missile Base during the Cold War. Sections of the trail were also used by runaway slaves seeking freedom on the historic Underground Railroad (just west of the bridge over the river).  The Clinton River winds thru this park and over the years it has carved out some on the most scenic landscape in South East MI.  The 10K and 13.1 Mile course is a must see and runs along side of the former Clinton-Kalamazoo Canal !  Not to be out done, the 5k and the Champs Mile will also cross the bridge over the river and challenge you with a vertical climb up to the plateau where the Champ once owned a home known as the Spring Hill Farm (near the sporting clay and archery range).
