About This Activity

The Holland Haven Marathon is a unique event which traverses the shores of Lake Michigan.  Runners will experience the beautiful lake shore as they travel from Grand Haven to Holland.  The full marathon begins at Rosy Mound Elementary School on Lakeshore Drive. This point-to-point marathon follows Lakeshore Drive past summer cottages and over majestic hills right into downtown Holland.  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 Camp Geneva.  Camp Geneva is a Christian Youth Camp and host of the packet packet pick up expo. Runners will follow the scenic Lakeshore Drive past the beaches and into the City of Holland, finishing at CrossFit Soaring Ledge. The course is comprised of roads and bike paths rolling over beautiful 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.
