The Lake Lansing Team Marathon will be run by teams of five. Team members will do one full lap (5.2 miles) around Lake Lansing. We have reserved Lake Lansing Park South in order to accommodate runners as well as their friends and family. The course will include a combination of paved pathways, sidewalks, and open roads that will wind its way along the course with views of the lake.
Each team member will receive a race t-shirt and a commemorative pint glass. Each runner must include their age as well as gender upon registration in order to place them into the appropriate division for awards. There will also be a single-lap individual race, which includes a t-shirt but no awards. Runners will be allowed to run more than one leg if they wish, however the average age of their team members will be added onto their total team age in order to keep in line with the awards categories.
Aid stations will be staged along the course with water available to runners.
All proceeds from this event will go to the Playmakers Fitness Foundation (PFF), a non-profit organization that is committed to the wellness of the Mid-Michigan community. The PFF works to empower all people to adopt and sustain a healthier and more active lifestyle by providing opportunities for people to move more and educational programs that train people to move better!
