Runners get an opportunity to record a personal best on our courses, which are run through the neighborhoods of Algonac, and the only race to finish on the boardwalk of the St. Clair River.

After you finish, all participants are treated to a warm breakfast of pancakes, bacon, sausage and coffee!  Our gracious hosts, the Algonac Fire Department, will also have the fire trucks on display for the kiddos!
