Port Oneida Run

Saturday, August 5, 2017

RUN FOR THE FARMS!  The 8th annual run through the beautiful scenery of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore supports preservation of the Park’s historic resources.

We offer two runs!  The rolling 5K trail run/walk is on the multi-use Heritage Trail and the Bayview natural Foot Trail. The Tiller’s 10K is a combination of back gravel roads and a portion on a firm Lake Michigan beach! Both offer a unique tour of the Port Oneida Rural Historic District – “one of the most prized historic landscapes in the country”!

The looped courses meander through the fields and hills of the pastoral landscape of farmsteads from the late 1800s. Afterwards, take a swim on the beautiful beaches in the National Lakeshore! Run with your friends, family, or come to cheer them on. The run is part of the Traverse City Track Club 2017 Grand Prix Series.

Traverse City Triathalon

Dividing West and East Grand Traverse Bay, Old Mission Peninsula offers stunning scenery and a challenging landscape. The Olympic- and sprint-distance races start in the calm, clean waters of Bowers Harbor on West Grand Traverse Bay for a loop swim. The bike courses point athletes past picturesque orchards and vineyards and over a few tough climbs. Heading out on the run, racers follow Neahtawanta Road along the water before turning up a dirt road into the Pyatt Nature Preserve. Athletes then return to the pavement for the final stretch to the finish line at Bowers Harbor Park. The Traverse City Triathlon delivers a beautiful course, professional race management, and great racing; this is Northern Michigan’s most memorable triathlon. See you at the start line!
