About This Activity

You will be challenged!  The 5th annual Footprints in the Forest 4 Mile Run (competitive)/ 2 Mile Fun Run/Hike (non- competitive) takes place on a scenic, start/finish course during the peak of autumn. The race starts in front of Heart Lake, crosses Predmore Road, and then completes a loop chock full of hills of varying difficulty and many curves. You will cross wooden bridges over running brooks and be afforded several lake views, truly some of the most beautiful scenery SE Michigan can offer!  The last half of the race (after the water station) has less hills than the first and you will finish right back where you started.  The hike offers some pretty spectacular fall scenery as you traverse many small hills (and a few big ones) on the Heart Lake Loop. Water will be provided and there will be several benches along the way if you need to rest.   You will be greeted at the finish with a nice post-race spread, complete with bananas, donuts, baked goods, coffee, pizza, and plenty of water. Age group awards will be presented, for those of you who are competitive!  Finally, we always have GREAT raffle prizes such as gift certificates to local eateries and apparel and always some surprises!  Many runners have their registration fee more than paid for with their raffle winnings!
