About This Activity

Run a beautiful single track route from Cross Village to Mackinaw City in northern Michigan.  The marathon starts at Wycamp Lake and winds up and along the Sturgeon Bay bluffs overlooking Lake Michigan.  Runners descend into wildflower blanketed lowlands before arriving at Goose Pond.  This is the half way point and the start of the Half Marathon.  The next six miles feature pine needle carpeted trail through rolling forest.  The trail opens up as it reaches French Farm Lake, a sandy bottomed wilderness lake with towering pines along the shore.  Several miles of the route follow its shoreline before runners enter a cedar forest for 2 miles.  The last 3 miles feature a converted rail trail that is flat and smooth.
