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! 

Planning has started for the 2022 race. As we continue to work around washouts along the Little Traverse Wheelway with no official detour, know that our courses are not officially set. Stay tuned for more details on our May 28th race date!

 

Registration is not yet open for the 2022 race.
