Mackinac Island Great Turtle Trail Run – October 22, 2022

Mackinac Island Great Turtle Trail Run
Join us for the 26th Running of the Great Turtle Half Marathon & 5.7 Run/Walk on Saturday, October 22, 2022.


This year marks the 26th 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.

Blankets are back! Our 2019 Sherpa Blanket was such a hit that many participants have asked us to do it again….so our 2022 race giveaway is another great blanket! All who register will enjoy special race features – commemorative medals, great swag blanket, special Halloween events for adults and kids, great end-of-season sales – plus the beauty of late fall on the Island.


The Great Turtle Half Marathon will start directly in front of the Mission Point Resort.

The 5.7 Mile Run and Walk will start directly in front of the Straits Lodge of the Mission Point Resort, at the corner of Wendall Street and Mission Street.

The finish line for all events will be located in the park, just off the main road, also in front of Mission Point Resort.

Starting Times – Please Note NEW START TIMES!

The 5.7 Mile Run & Walk will start at 10:30 AM
The Half Marathon will start at 10:45 AM
