DWD Green Swamp

March 7

dwdgreenswampDWD Green Swamp offers a flat fast trail experience in the cypress wilderness. You will love the strange and wonderful botanical experience. Less than an hour from Tampa, but it seems like a million miles away from the trappings of daily life. Join us for a laid back adventure that will chase away the mid winter blues.The soul freein' magic of runnin’ through nature with reckless abandon makes DWD day more than special, heck, it’s almost spiritual. Life is short and we ain't got enough of such days.
An opportunity to avoid midlife crisis, regular visits to the shrink and suicidal tendencies, kinda like a good spankin’. I hear tell the Post Office is gonna make runnin’ DWD mandatory.

Martian Invasion of Races

April 18

martianHAIL EARTHLINGS

Why the Martians?  Click here for the illustrated story. Earth marathons have strange themes, with your flying pigs and your convoluted, NASA-calculated encounter projections. Our finest Martian philosophers and theologians are working tirelessly to compose our own (as you call it) "trash talk", which we will shower upon you most mercilessly once our planet's runners prove victorious in winning all the races and snagging all the prizes. We also noticed the course map is now on your website. Using the MSA's (Martian Space Administration) spatial-relationship viewer, we see your course is free of dust and rock, perhaps a solid surface. It could be quite fast … interesting. Time will tell who ends up kicking whose …
The USATF certified course, is traffic free and fast. The  Kids' Martian Marathon will encourage health and fitness to children, check out the Martian Kid's link. Hope to see all of you there! Distances: 5K, 10K, Half-Marathon, Marathon, Kid's Mile. The Martian Marathon is a Boston Qualifier

Trail Marathon

April 25 & 26

trailThis race, now in it's 29th year, started before a single knobby bike tire rolled around Potowatami Trail. "Potto", is a big bad loop of hilly kick your butt wilderness single track trail. Due to the fact that most Americans are comatose couch potato wimps, the 12,000 acres of Pinckney Recreation Area remains a wilderness, even though it's only a 55 minute drive from metro Detroit.
I do enjoy a solitary run on Potto but once a year it's fun to lace em' up and scamper through the woods with a thousand of my friends. It's a celebration of dirt, sweat and pain that renews my faith in humanity.  Distances: 5Mile, Half-Marathon, Marathon, 50K.

charlevoixThe Charlevoix Marathon is a Boston Marathon qualifying race. Both the Marathon and the Half Marathon courses are certified and insured by USATF.
*There will NOT be an early start for any athlete registered for the Marathon or Half Marathon run. The early start time is for the Walker and Athlete with disabilities categories only.

All Charlevoix Marathon events start and end in beautiful downtown Charlevoix, Michigan. Charlevoix is perched on an isthmus between Lake Michigan and Round Lake and is a northern Michigan community known as “Charlevoix the Beautiful” spreading out onto the shores of Lake Charlevoix. Nothing beats Charlevoix in terms of natural beauty. Plus, Charlevoix has the look and feel of an 18th Century resort community.

The staging area for Charlevoix is the beautiful downtown area of Charlevoix on Michigan Ave. and W. Dixon, one—half block north of the drawbridge. All courses will take you through fantastic residential tree lined neighborhoods. The course is primarily flat, fast shaded most of the way, with a few inclines. The Marathon course has a few inclines and a hill at about the 7 mile marker. You can expect a very scenic race with some of the most breathtaking views available on any course. The Marathon and Half Marathon participants will run onto the bike trail.

Book'n Trilogy

May 16

bookntrilogyI must say, it was amazing that we were able to, through some clever modifications, make this course all downhill; even though it was the same course that was all downhill when run the other direction!  OK, sure there were a few uphill parts added to provide additional training and exercise (at no extra cost), but most everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, and we can all take heart in knowing that we had some fun while supporting our library, and our community!
