Sandhill Crane All Trail Half Marathon/10K/5K

October 13, 2018 # 11

11th ANNUAL!!  A GREAT PURE MICHIGAN ALL TRAIL COURSE! 

RUN OR SPORT WALK A FANTASTIC COURSE!


To enhance the fund raising benefits Cass County Parks Department (a 501©(3)) is now sponsoring this race with Coach Ron Gunn as race director for this non-repeat, all trail course.  Located in the 820 acre Dr. T. K. Lawless County Park it is a hidden gem in the beautiful southwest Michigan.  This natural scenic odyssey of forest and field includes 6 charming bridge crossings, lots of streams and small lakes, and, of course, some hills (“vertical visual breaks”).  Sandhill Cranes do frequent this bucolic area, adding charm to the course – take it as a good omen if you see one during your race.
• Dynamite custom design long sleeve performance T-shirts to all finishers.  (Register by OCT 6 to pick up on race day)
• Custom laser engraved wood award for top two finishers each age group and race medal for third place.
• Water and sport drink on the course and a great re-hydration station at the finish featuring fruit, sport drink,
  Popsicle, potato chips, homemade cookies and water.
• Chip timing for 5k, 10k and Half Marathon (Chip timing will close at Noon – course open to 1:30PM)
• Music DJ at start and finish, and music stations on the course to inspire participants.
• Finishers in all races from Cass County, Niles and the Granger area will be listed in an HONOR
  ROLL in the appropriate newspapers.
• Race benefits the Cass County Parks and the Dowagiac Rotary Club.
• No parking fee again this year!
