Carpe Diem - Carpe Noctem Half Marathon and 10K

Sun May 3, 2020 Commerce Township, MI 48382 US Directions
2020 Race Cancelled Despite Reschedule Attempt

It is with a heavy heart that we announce this race is cancelled for 2020.

We had hoped that the situation would turn around sooner and let us move forward, but we got news today that the State Park will not be allowing events through at least May 12th now. Unfortunately that means the race is cancelled. 

We have communicated with the park about rescheduling again, but the only space they have available for this event is October and we do not have any open time in October with other events already scheduled. So unfortunately rescheduling will not be possible for 2020.

All current registrations will be converted to virtual and athletes will receive their shirt and medal. An email with more details will be sent to current registrants. 

Please take heed of what local and national authorities are saying in regard to safe practices during this time and keep your heads up. We will get through this and back to normal life!

Description

Update, 3/18/2020: The State Park has cancelled all events at a minimum through mid May. Unfortunately that means this event will only take place virtually in 2020. If you were already registered, you will receive an email with more details on what the virtual race will entail. 

Due to the State of Michigan's event restrictions during the month of April, aimed at preventing the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in our community, this race has been postponed to May 3, 2020. If you are currently registered and would like to switch to the virtual option because you cannot make the new race date, send us an email. 

Seize the Day and Seize the Night in 2020 with one of Trivium's favorite events! The race will take place on the beautiful and smooth trails of Proud Lake State Recreation Area.  These trails are perfect for running both day and night and will offer a chance for lightning fast trail-race times!

The event includes both a long (Half Marathon) and short (10K ) option in the morning and evening. The morning race will be completely in daylight and the evening option will start before dark, but many people will finish after the sun has gone down!

We will have both a day medal, and a night medal. If you do both events your two medals will connect to make one complete medal.

Parking

There will be tons of parking available right at the starting area, which is in the RV campground, please make sure you use the correct address as the starting line is not near the main entrance of the state park, but rather at the campground entrance!

This is a state park so to enter the state park you will need a State Park Passport (good at all parks all year) upon arrival.  This money will be collected at the gate if you do not already have one, but it's cheaper to get it ahead of time!
