Meijer Festival of Races

July 10th


Imagine lining up with thousands of runners just like you on a beautiful Traverse City morning. You enjoy the picturesque views of Grand Traverse Bay as you push yourself to beat last year's time. You come to the final stretch downtown and you're re-energized by waves of cheering fans all the way to the finish line where you're handed cherries after you cross the line.

Welcome to the Meijer Festival Races, presented by Cherry Bay Orchards. The Meijer Festival of Races is a race series that celebrates the beauty and agriculture in the Traverse City Area along with providing unique race experiences such as finishing on a parade route, or running through an orchard (Half Marathon only). New in 2021, each race will also have a virtual option!
