Sleeping Bear Marathon

7 October 2017 - 7 October 2017

A scenic marathon, half marathon, and 5k run/walk in the heart of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, the Sleeping Bear Marathon starts and finishes in Empire, Michigan. The out-and-back marathon course will take runners by the Dune Climb, past Little Glen Lake and through the village of Glen Arbor with breathtaking views of the Manitou Islands and Sleeping Bear Dunes along the way. The half-marathon and 5k will follow the same course as the marathon, with the half marathon turning around at the 6.5 mile mark, and the 5k turning around at 1.5 miles. At the peak of fall color season, the tree-lined course will be one that both runners and spectators won’t soon forget.
