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 Thanks for 5 great years Josh, Molly & staff!

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.

Really bummed to hear this news. Was fortunate to run in all 5, and it was always a great race. My family enjoyed making a weekend out of it. Thanks for great memories!

So bummed! Always such a wonderful well put on event. Praying it will continue after you have a break ❤️

Oh no!! This was going to be my first year - and I've been eagerly anticipating signing up for it. 😭

LT was my first half marathon! Beautiful route. Sad to see this post! Hopefully, it will return:)

Oh no! I planned on running the half marathon this year! 😢

A great great race run by great friends! Thx for some great memories!

Sad to see this post! I’m glad to have run two of the five! Thank you for all that you do.

Great race in a beautiful location. I'll miss it!

My fastest 1/2 ever. 1:30 and change. Thank you for organizing a great event.

Oh no. What do we have to do to bring it back? This was my favorite race ever run!!!

Glad to have been able to run it at least once!

Just moved back home to Michigan. Was looking forward to running it again!!

Sorry to hear it. Thanks for your efforts. I believe it is a wonderful race

Nooooo! I have done this race every year and look forward to it 😭😭😭😭

My favorite race! You guys did a great job every year! I will definitely miss it!

Sad! This was one of our favorite runs!

Oh no I love this race 😢

I love this run. I really hope that you consider bringing it back. A great fall motivation.

Thanks for putting on a great event. The outfitter crew is the best!
