About This Activity

The Holland Haven Marathon is a unique event which traverses the shores of Lake Michigan.  Runners will get to experience the beautiful lake shore as they travel from Holland to Grand Haven.  This point-to-point marathon follows Lakeshore Drive past summer cottages, over majestic hills and past the sandy beaches into Grand Haven.  The early September weekend allows for mild weather and a last chance to qualify for the Boston Marathon.  Boston qualifying hopefuls will love this opportunity to make the cut only ten days before registration opens.  The 26.2 mile course is USATF certified as a Boston qualifier.

The 13.1 mile Holland Haven Half Marathon begins at Sandy Pointe Beach House in West Olive, MI.  Runners will follow the scenic Lakeshore Drive past the beaches and into the City of Grand Haven.  The course is comprised of roads and bike paths which roll over majestic hills while engulfing the summer landscape of Lake Michigan.  This one-way race is one-of-a-kind in West Michigan, uniting communities in a unique event.
