The 6th annual run through the beautiful scenery of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore supports preservation of the Park’s historic resources. We’re offering two runs this year – a challenging 5K trail run/walk on the Bayview Trail, or the Tiller’s 10K on the Bayview Trail, back gravel roads and a portion on the 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. Professional Chip Timing!
Location is the Charles Olsen farmstead at 3164 W. Harbor Hwy (M-22), 3 miles north of Glen Arbor, just west of Port Oneida Road.
Registration by July 15th – $28
After July 15th – $33
