Race Start & Finish: Silver Lake Beach in the Pinckney Recreation Area.
Starting Times - Marathon starts at about 8:00 am. This year we have added an "early start" option for those of you that feel you cannot make the 6.5 hour cut-off. Show up to start at 7:00am and we'll send you on your way.

Half marathon is scheduled to depart about 8:30. The half marathon will have 3 waves based on pace. These are not real waves because we use "the chip" now. We'll still send the tall long-legged humans out first--but you can decide when to depart.

Aid Stations: Water and Gatorade at all, and a few other things at some. At miles 1.7, 4.2, 6.9, 9.4, 12.1, and 13.1 for both races. Marathon aid stations continue to miles 14.8, 17.3, 20.0, 22.5, 25.2, and the finish. Some littering of the trail is unavoidable, but please try to keep it to a minimum and close to the aid stations.

Trail Marking: The 13.1 mile loop course will be clearly marked...unless some wacko comes along and tears down the ribbons! Serously, you won't get lost!

How to Avoid The Porta Potty During a Race
