"If you love serene runs, lots of unadulterated nature, friendly villagers, special care and attention on the course to include lots of food, plus water-water everywhere, this marathon is for you. " 2013 Participant
The Whitefish Point Marathon is in Paradise Michigan located in the eastern Upper Peninsula of Michigan. "This is a great Father/Son experience" states a 2013 Dad/Participant, " I'm glad we had the chance to spend the time together." Awards will be presented to the 1st place men and women runners. In 2014, through a partnership with UPPRC, the Whitefish Point Marathon will be posting the results by age brackets as well as finish times in an effort to encourage marathon runners everywhere.
The road race meanders along Whitefish Point Road, traveling along the edge of Whitefish Bay, crossing the Betsy River, kissing the shores of Lake Superior, passing by the Whitefish Point Light Station, while skirting the edge of the Seney National Wildlife Refuge, Whitefish Point. The finish line is at the Whitefish Community Center on the southern edge of Paradise. After the race, we encourage you to unwind by visiting Tahquamenon Falls, Crisp Point Light House, Point Iroquois Light House, the Whitefish Point Light Station or Oswald's Bear Ranch.
