Port Oneida Run

Join us to support your national park! Proceeds help preserve over 200 historic buildings and landscapes of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Choose your race between the Flat and Fast 5K, a 10K, and our inaugural hilly half marathon.

There is nothing like these courses. This is the only run that winds through the beautiful scenery of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore’s Port Oneida Rural Historic District 3 miles north of Glen Arbor. With its historic farms and barns, Port Oneida is hailed as “one of the most prized historic landscapes in the country”! Afterwards, take a swim on the beautiful beaches down the road!

Enjoy chip timing, station hydration, unique awards and great edibles! Enjoy the park – bring your blanket or lawn chair to our starting and ending point at the Olsen farm and enjoy post-celebration activities.
