This year marks the 24th running of one of the most scenic trail events in the state. We have a capacity of 3,000 participants running and walking the inside trails of Mackinac Island during the last open weekend of the season.
All who register will enjoy special race features – commemorative medals, a race apparel in Great Turtle fashion, special Halloween events for adults and kids, great end-of-season sales – plus the beauty of late fall on the Island.
