About This Activity

The 2nd Annual Tough Udder 5K and Half Marathon races are a fund raiser for the Track & Field, and Cross Country Teams at Kalkaska Public Schools takes place on Saturday, September 13, 2014.  


9 am - Half Marathon

9:30 am - 5K Run/Walk

Both races start at the newly resurfaced track and continue about 1/2 mile west on two tracks then onto a series of tight winding single track mountain bike trails through thick woods and open fields that circle back and come out of the woods where you will return to the track and finish line.

The half marathon starts on the same path as the 5K but continues further out on the same single track, with a few short sections of two track and a 1/2 mile section along a secluded gravel road before heading back east toward the finish line.  These single track trails have a mix of mostly flat to slightly up and down terrain with some short descents and ascents and a few longer/steeped hills

This is a trail run that you will not want to miss. It's uniqueness, toughness, and beauty will be etched in your memory.
Once you run this race you won't run any "udder."
