The Town Crier Races 5k, 10k & Half Marathon deliver a fun and scenic view of the Saugatuck/Douglas, Michigan area. The beauty of the lakeshore course makes it a favorite of runners year after year.

No one is a stranger on the courses. Every runner’s accomplishments are celebrated, and you’ll have a cheering section whether you brought your own or not. The small-town vibe just can’t be duplicated, and you’ll feel welcome right away.

The event proceeds provide a majority of the funding for the Saugatuck High School Cross Country and Track Teams, donating over $85k since 2002. Help make a difference in the lives of student athletes and have a great time doing it.
