Races Around the North

May 20, 2023

There are a lot of big races happening over Memorial Day weekend, from the Bayshore Marathon in Traverse City to the Top of Michigan Festival of Races in Petoskey to the Rotary Stride for S.T.R.I.V.E. 5K in Cadillac. But the competition that caught our eye is the World’s Largest Gathering of Blow Up Costumes in a 1K Footrace. Truly, is there anything more joyful than watching folks in inflatable T-rex costumes run around a track? (The answer, in the very professional opinion of this writer, is no.) If you need a little joy in your life this weekend, head to downtown Alanson on Saturday, May 27, at 9am to spectate or participate in this magnificent feat of athleticism. Race sign-ups are $20 per person for $40 for a family. Proceeds from the race go toward helping Alanson Public School fifth graders attend Camp Dagget and take a trip to Lansing.
