Gives the impression of a small town race in the sense of participants and race production, but there were some amazing runners on the course!

I really enjoyed this course. You started in a working cherry orchard, ran along the west Grand Traverse bay, and finished on Front Street. The views were amazing and I lost track of time checking out the lake houses along the way. It was limited to 500 participants so it didn’t feel crowded until we merged with the other race distances. Everyone was friendly, online results were instant (you scanned the QR code on your bib), and it was easy for my daughter to pick up her age group award.

Downside: no electrolytes on the course, only water stops. We were fortunate the day was cooler and overcast. Had it been sunny and just a few degrees warmer, runners would of had more issues. General lack of communication…when we picked up our packets were weren’t told there was a drop bag station, it seemed hard to find the information about shuttles and where/when to pick up our packets. And the saddest part for me, when I finished there weren’t any cherries left.

Logistically this was an easy race to navigate. Packet pickup up was quick, runner drop-off and bus loading was well organized, and post race meal/goodies were easy to find.

Course was nice and flowy. Not completely flat, a few downhills and slight uphills. It was only crowded in a few sections, otherwise you had plenty of room to navigate around others but never feel alone. It has all the potential to be a PR race. This was my daughter’s first half marathon and she said it was the perfect 1st half marathon.
