April 24 & 25, 2021

If any in-person event cannot proceed as scheduled due to a government order related to the COVID-19 pandemic, all participants will be given the option to participate in our virtual event or defer their registration to 2022 free of charge. 

If you can't remember if you deferred your 2020 entry to 2021, you can check the list here.

Tackle the Potowatami & Crooked Lake Trails with us as we celebrate 35 years of trail! The course is neither flat nor fast, but it is a beautiful loop with constant hills through Michigan’s Pinckney Recreation Area. A Michigan Recreation Passport is required for entry into the park. A portion of each entry fee will be donated to the John Rogucki Memorial Fund.

Cozy beanie to all entrants. Laser cut steel medals with powder coat and a paracord lanyard, handmade locally by Detroit Metal Works to all finishers.

COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS: All health and safety orders in place at the time of the event will be implemented race weekend. Start times are subject to change slightly depending on the wave size allowed, but times below will be the first wave start.

Event is currently limited to 500 participants per day. We will adjust this accordingly with state requirements closer to event day.
