Gear Up for Running Season in Gaylord

By Jillian Manning | May 14, 2022

Coming soon, Northern Express will be sharing the 2022 race calendar full of running, biking, and paddling races across northern Michigan. (Reminder: If you’re a race organizer, be sure to drop us a line about your race at events[at]traverseticker[dot]com.) If you’re prepping for the summer running season, stretch your legs in Gaylord’s 4.5 on the 45th race on Saturday, May 21. The 4.5-mile run ($25 registration; $30 after May 19) is a perfect warm-up. The course starts in downtown Gaylord, heads north on the Iron Belle trail, then returns to town where local businesses like Snowbelt Brewery will help you celebrate the finish. There’s also a 2-mile run for those who want a shorter distance ($20 registration; $25 after May 19). The races start at 9am and 9:10am respectively, so you can get your workout in early and then enjoy the day in Gaylord.
