Hello fellow Endurance Runners, the 2023 Traverse City Trail Running Festival was required to change dates due to a date conflict with the DNR and turkey hunting. Our team has worked hard in selecting dates that work for all parties involved. The new date, May 12-13, 2023 presents opportunities including the possibility for warmer weather, reduced possibility of snow, and additional camping opportunities at our host venue, Timber Ridge RV and Recreation Resort.
The Traverse City Trail Running Festival is northern Michigan’s premier celebration of off-road running. The courses will take runners through the Pere Marquette Forest on a variety of singletrack and double wide pathways. The festival begins with a two-person 10K relay and 5K on Friday evening, with the 10K, 25K, 50K, 75K and 100K individual races and 100K relay getting underway on Saturday morning. All events start and finish at Timber Ridge RV & Recreation Resort. After your run, hang around and enjoy post-race snacks, beverages, fire pits, yard games, and cheer on your fellow participants.
