Time for fun in the sun... cool fruity drinks....and a run along the beach!
Who needs Florida when we can create our own Island Fever at Island Lake in SOUTHeast Michigan.
This is an unsupported, unmarked, free, fat ass style marathon-ish and 50k-ish trail run with the start and finish at the Island Lake Recreation Area Trailhead in Brighton
Starts at 8am.
Cost: Free, but bring munchies for the luau.
Course: See trail map in comments below.
Pineapple-y Yellow loop is about 5 miles. Tropical sky blue loop is about 9 miles. Run blue and yellow twice each for a marathon-ish distance. Add a 3rd go around on yellow for the ultra tropical run.
Aid stations: Umm... "unsupported" means BYOA (Bring Your Own Aid). If interested bring something yummy that we can set out on a picnic table or hood of car or tailgate of truck to munch on after loops or at finish.
Awards: First to the pirate's treasure marked with an X can keep it.
Kidding.. no awards. Although there is a very good chance that you may get leied (not laid).
Directions to Park:
From I-96, go to exit 151, Kensington Road. Go South on Kensington to the park entrance on the left (East side). After guard house turn right and follow signs to "Trailhead".
PLEASE REMEMBER TO RUN RESPONSIBLY. No Designated Runners will be available if you over do it.
Just a reminder, you are completely responsible and liable for yourself.
