Beitreten Little Traverse Half Marathon
Join us next autumn for the annual LittleTraverse Half Marathon and 10K– a point-to-point adventure like no other around Little Traverse Bay. What sets this race apart? An incredible course (FAST, flat and fun) with big-race logistics and a small-town feel.
USATF certified. Starting in Bay Harbor, this unique point-to-point course (filled with long, flat stretches and some rolling terrain) will take runners on a stunning fall tour around Little Traverse Bay to the finish line at the waterfront in Harbor Springs via four distinct sections.
Section 1: Little Traverse Wheelway
From start line in Bay Harbor through Petoskey's Bayfront Park
Runners will take a lap through Bay Harbor passing the start line and then head east on Village Harbor Drive past the Inn to the new spur path. The spur path goes along the base of the cliffs, past the basin to the bay where it joins East Park. Hard right (or you'll end up in the bay) up the first, and only, major hill to join the Little Traverse Wheelway. Don't forget to look over your shoulder at the top for an incredible view of the bay! Continue on the Wheelway towards Petoskey running through wooded sections and open sections on the bluff with views across the bay to Harbor Springs. At the 3 mile mark, runners drop down to the water's edge along the Petoskey waterfront.
Section 2: historic Bay View
At the 5 mile mark, runners will avoid a half mile section on Rt. 31 and instead veer off the Wheelway onto a grassy path that runs along the shore in front of historic Bay View cottages and past Stafford's Bay View Inn to rejoin the Wheelway.
Section 3: Petoskey State Park
Just past the Tannery Creek crossing, runners will take a short section of wood-chipped trail veering off the Wheelway into Petoskey State Park. A paved road will go through the park where runners will merge with the 10K runners/walkers at mile 7.5 (Aid Station 3) and head to the main entrance and rejoin the Wheelway.
Section 4: Beach Road
Runners will enjoy veering off the most congested part of the Wheelway to instead follow Beach Road through the back dunes and along the shore to the finish line. This is the longest, straightest, flattest stretch and can be challenging. Aid Station 4 is positioned midway to break it up. The last stretch, well-known to local runners as Beach Drive passes along historic cottages of Wequetonsing and runners then head down Bay Street along the Harbor Springs waterfront for a final, flat stretch before the finish line.
