Sleeping Bear Marathon Reviews

4.0 Stars from 1 Runners


By about 2013


This marathon is a challenge with the hills. You run the hills both out and back. Typically a course that is difficult to PR. Do not expect many cheer squads unless you bring your own.

Race Tips

Practice running on tired legs and lots of hill work. From mile 18.5 to mile 24.75 is mostly hills with climbs of nearly 200 feet.

Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

The hotel in Empire fills fast so book early. If you want a pasta dinner at a restaurant make reservations early or have the pasta dinner at packet pick up. Parking is close by and plentiful.
