All Charlevoix Marathon events start and end in beautiful downtown Charlevoix, Michigan. Charlevoix is perched on an isthmus between Lake Michigan and Round Lake and is a northern Michigan community known as “Charlevoix the Beautiful” spreading out onto the shores of Lake Charlevoix. Nothing beats Charlevoix in terms of natural beauty; it has the look and feel of an 18th Century resort community. With this said, the staging area for Charlevoix is the beautiful downtown area of Charlevoix on Michigan Ave. and W. Dixon, one—half block north of the drawbridge. All courses will take you through fantastic residential tree lined neighborhoods. The Marathon course has a few inclines and a hill at about the 7 mile marker. You can expect a very scenic race with some of the most breathtaking views available on any course. The Marathon and Half Marathon participants will run onto the bike trail.
The starting and finish lines lie at Charlevoix’s famous draw bridge downtown, at the corner of Bridge Street and Pine River Lane. After the race start, the course then proceeds in a mostly northward and eastward direction from downtown, taking runners out for long stretches along the Lake Michigan beaches and along what locals describe as “knee-friendly” wooden bridges for nearly a third of the course. Once you’ve run out among the sunshine and winds of the lakeshore, the course then turns back inward towards town along Old Orchard and Waller Road, passing Charlevoix Country Club and meeting the bike trail at the intersection with Highway 31. Runners in both the half and full marathons run for the next 3 miles along the bike trail, reversing at the turnaround point near the beach.
