COME AND GET YOUR TRAIL RUN ON...
All Races will start at 7 a.m. in Lowell, Michigan at Fallasburg Park near picnic area C-3.
The Race is Held at Fallasburg Park just North of Lowell
If you are coming from the expressway I-96...get off exit 52 Lowell Exit and turn north, go approx. 7.4 miles to Fallasburg Park Dr. and turn right(its only a right turn)...go another .7 tenths of a mile and turn right onto Covered Bridge Road for .5 of a mile. The start and Finish will be on this road at Picnic area C-3.
This ia an a TRAIL run, there are mostly trails, some gravel road and a RIVER Crossing on each Loop. Each loop is 10.3 miles long. You should bring extra dry shoes for each loop you run. 4 hours and 30 minutes won our race last time and that was won by trail legend Ben VanHoose so plan on being out there at least another two hours after that!
