Grand Island Trail Marathon & 10K

Visit Michigan’s Upper Peninsula in July for this intimate trail marathon on a wilderness island. You won’t have a crowd cheering you on, but you’ll experience the spectacular Great Lakes shoreline. Every runner must carry a water bottle and will get an eco-fiber shirt. Post-run food is local and/or organic. Proceeds support native plant restoration on Grand Island and area sport trail maintenance.
