Summer Trail Fest Ultra and Half Marathon

About

This will be our second year for our Summer Trail Fest Ultra and Half Marathon.  This race is the counterpart to our Winter Trail Fest Half Marathon and 5 Mile.  The two event medals will combine to make one giant medal!  This event is a great first timers ultra with well stocked aid stations and is an amazingly well marked event.  The course is 90% gorgeous, well groomed trails.  The race has extremely generous cutoff times with a 20 minute mile pace for the Ultra and 45 minute per mile pace for the half.   The course is also a spectacular race for the season veteran or the athlete looking to PR their trail Ultra or Half Time.  Taking place in the center of southern Michigan at the gorgeous Sleepy Hollow State Park this event is convenient for both the East and West side of the State!

After the race stick around and cheer all the other athletes while we celebrate with a beach and barbecue afterparty!  Trivium always trys to have the best race swag.  For this race we have summer racing singlets and awesome medals!

If you are having a tough time getting motivated this year the Summer Trail Fest is the solution!  STFU and Run!  Worried you‘re not fast enough?  We have a 20 minute per mile cutoff! Not ready for an ultra? That’s fine, sign up for the half marathon! It’s time to quit with the excuses and STFU and Run.  The Summer Trail Fest Ultra and Half Marathon is a great way to get yourself motivated for 2022.   Paired with our unique Winter Trail Fest Half marathon and 5 mile medal it will be easy to say, WTF, I might as well STFU and Run in 2022!
