Stafford’s Top of Michigan Festival of Races
Half Marathon, 10K, 5K

Back in the 80’s The Little Traverse Wheelway was just a dream, but now it is a beautiful paved trail that winds from Charlevoix to Harbor Springs along the pristine shoreline of Little Traverse Bay. It is a perfect haven to strap on your shoes and head out for a run, which is why we are happy to announce the Top of Michigan Festival of Races! This year’s festival will include a Half Marathon, 10K and two 5Ks!

It is with heavy hearts, and a dream of future races, that Stafford’s Top of Michigan Festival of Races is making the call to cancel our race event for 2020. With monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic, we feel we need to do our part to keep our communities on the right track to do what we can to slow the spread.

This year’s festival scheduled for Saturday, May 23, 2020 has been CANCELLED.
