Company in presenting the 3rdAnnual Snow Moon Trail Run! The Snow moon is a traditional name for the full moon that occurs in February in North America. This event has hearty trail runners embracing the snow and cold air temperatures with a unique race through the dark night with cool LED lights marking the path along with what might be the most festive “aid station” ever at a race!
Runners embark on one of several race distance options - 5k, 15k or 25k - along a 5k loop of wide, groomed trails (not single track) through the woods of City Forest in Midland, Michigan. Those participants completing multiple laps (15k and 25k) will run through a chute located inside of the Snow Moon event tent where the finish line is located. After finishing, event Presenting Sponsor Shorts Brewing Company will be on hand with our partners from Midland Eagles 2110 providing icy cold adult refreshments!
Added amenities for this year’s race include Shorts Beverages, Overall Masters Awards, Age Group Awards, and Event Pint Glasses for all participants!
This is a USA Track & Field Sanctioned event. A portion of proceeds will benefit the Eagles of Midland 2110 and their community efforts.
The Snow Moon Run will take place in Midland’s City Forest on wide-track cross country ski trails and mountain bike trails. The course will be marked with small LED lights to assist with trail navigation. The race is composed of a 5k trail course with runners able to choose a 1 (5k), 3 (15k), or 5 (25k) lap option. If you are opting for multiple laps, you’ll enjoy cheer from those in the tent as you run directly through a 3,200 square foot event tent. This race has one “aid” station with bonfire manned by enthusiastic volunteers that participants will pass twice on each loop of the course.
