About This Activity

Run2payitforward 10 mile and 5k trail footrace will be an event you won't soon forget.  The course is 90% single track trail and 10% dirt roads and grass that traverses through Pontiac Lake Recreation Area, in White Lake Twp, Michigan.  The course winds its way through a beautiful and scenic landscape that will challenge you with every foot strike and leave you with a sense of empowerment for having accomplished what you set out to do.  The mission of the event is to get us out into nature and help others by paying it forward.  A portion of the proceeds of the event will go to Camp Casey, an organization that serves children with cancer  and Stay in the Shade, raising awarness and research funds for melanoma.
