After a great 5-year run, we have decided to take a water break from the Little Traverse Half Marathon and 10k. We have had so much fun hosting the event and meeting all you runners! Thanks for making it the event that it was!! ... See MoreSee Less
So sorry to see this race end! It was so well organized and the crew at The Outfitter has done an awesome job with it, but we sure understand the need for a break. For those who like the route, please keep in mind that the Stafford's Top of Michigan Marathon/Festival of Races takes place on Saturday, May 26th this year. This includes the marathon, a half-marathon, a 10K and 5K and uses the same route as the Little Traverse Half Marathon. Sign up is still available. goo.gl/d3omJE

I am incredibly bummed!! After another half marathon I ran 3x cancelled I found this one and ran it in October for the first time. I fell in love and was REALLY looking forward to doing it again this year. Please bring it back!! 😢
Oh no! Loved the event and drove 900 miles, round trip, to run it not once, but twice. I was hopeful of a third 😢 thanks to all the volunteers who made my sweet memories possible.
So sad, I loved this race!
I also drove 5 1/2 hours to run this twice and was looking forward to doing it again. Great race! Thanks for your hard work organizing it and I look forward to seeing it return one day.
