End your Summer with the Mackinac 8 Mile Road Race
Join us for the 52nd anniversary of this exciting, summer-ending event. You will experience Mackinac Island in one of the oldest and most scenic races in Michigan. The Island is a unique destination that can only be reached by ferry. Step back in time to a bygone era where travel is done by foot, bicycle, carriage or horse. With up to 1,800 runners and walkers, this is definitely a race you and your family will never forget!

We are offering FREE race photos to all of our participants. After the race, view your results and photos taken at the race – all on one page! You will be able to share as many photos as you want for free!
