Must do marathon!
The Charlevoix Marathon and Half Marathon is hosted in the beautiful northern Michigan lake town of Charlevoix. Runners from all over the world have come to this event for the serenity of Lake Michigan and Lake Charlevoix. They enjoyed high profile feel of this professional event, the cool Lake breezes and the high energy at our downtown finish line. Again this year the always enthusiastic East Jordan Cheer Team will be handing out the finisher medals and water. At the finish line, receive a cool wet towel.
This Boston Marathon Qualifying course takes you through the streets of northern Charlevoix, across wooden bridges for miles and along the shoreline of beautiful Lake Michigan. The race is extremely well supported by local volunteers, City Officials, police and spectators. Come see why this race has been voted as one of the Country's Top Must Do Marathons year after year. Temperatures race day are typically in the mid-to-high 60's.
All of the aid stations will be serviced by the experienced student athlete groups that worked last year. Of the 9 aid stations, 7 of the groups have been with us for all seven years! Gatorade, GU, pretzels, a candy snack and water are at all stations. Some stations have flat coke and sun tan lotions. A registered nurse, a local volunteer doctor and the Charlevoix EMT unit will be on hand at the finish line.
Running Fit of Michigan will time this event. With over 25 years of race timing they fully understand marathon timing! We hope to see you in Charlevoix!
