Über Top of Michigan Festival of Races

Stafford’s Top of Michigan Marathon – A USATF CERTIFIED COURSE to benefit the Top of Michigan Trails Council and the Petoskey High School Cross Country and Track teams. In addition, there is a half marathon, a 10k race/walk, and two 5K race/walk events.

The marathon race will be run on a beautiful course made of asphalt starting in Charlevoix, then runs through Petoskey and finishes in Harbor Springs. The trail is an excellent venue for runners stepping up to a marathon or seasoned runners looking for a fast time. The trail is relatively flat and perfect for getting a qualifying time for other races. The trail has spectacular views of the Little Traverse Bay.

The half marathon is run on the same course and begins in Bay Harbor and finishes in Harbor Springs.

The 10K starts at the Top of Michigan Trails Council’s Packy Offield Trail Center and also finishes in Harbor Springs. One 5K event will begin and end at the start line in Charlevoix, and the other will begin and end at the finish line in Harbor Springs

For this race, road connections extend into downtowns, for a total of 26.2 miles. A small portion of the marathon and half marathon will be on a grass surface through Bay View.
