Online Registration  |  Print Out and Mail In

Paradise, Michigan

Starting Time 7:00 AM EDST







I have run 71 marathons and tons of other races of various distance from 5K to 103 miles, and your race stands out as perhaps my favorite (apart from Boston anyways). For what it is worth, from a hard core runner -- nice work, really nice work. Thank you for doing what you do.

Unique Lake Superior Rock Medallions to all Finishers  Paradise is a unique area in North America. Geographically, Whitefish Point is a major bird migration corridor on the continent in Spring and Fall. Rockhounders explore Lake Superior's shore for agates and beautiful rocks for artistic creation and spiritual inclusion. The Whitefish Point Marathon committee selected the rock finisher medallions as a keepsake of this incredible region. In 2017, the committee expanded this concept of providing runners not only a feel for the region but also a taste. Cornish miners immigrated to Michigan's Upper Peninsula in the 1800's, they brought with them their beloved traditional dish: the pasty. The Yooper Pasty, an Upper Peninsula savory treat is being added to the post race refreshments.. Your pasty ( beef, pork, potatoes, carrots, onions, rutabaga, and salt & pepper, wrapped in a pie crust) including gravy or ketchup is of no additional cost to registered runners. Tickets for pasties for your support team may be purchased at packet pickup for $5.00 each. We look forward to your participation in the Whitefish Point Marathon and enjoyment of the PASTY eh?
