Red Moon Trail Run

Mount Pleasant, MI

Inaugural Red Moon Trail Run - 2017 Overview


Join TriToFinish in collaboration with organizers of the MUTT Series of races and the Bay City Morning Rotary Driathlon for the first ever Red Moon Night Trail Run!  The Red moon – or Sturgeon moon is a traditional name for the full moon that occurs in August and was named by Native American fishing tribes who knew that sturgeon in the Great Lakes were most easily caught under it.

The Race: Come out for the Red Moon Trail Run at Deerfield Nature Park in Mount Pleasant as runners embark on a 5k, 15k or 25k race along wide trails (not single track) through the woods – over and along the Chippewa River. Runners completing multiple laps will run through a chute located directly inside a 3200 square foot event tent. Finish early or spectating?  Feel free to bring and enjoy an adult beverage while cheering on those crushing the warm night run as they run past you through the tent.

Note:  Registration for this event is limited to just 300 participants, so sign up early!  The Inaugural Snow Moon Trail Run sold out nearly 2 months prior to race day!

Course Description:

The Red Moon Trail Run will take place at Deerfield Nature Park - a 591-acre venue with 8 miles of scenic trails in Mount Pleasant.  The trail will be marked with small LED lights for easy trail navigation.  The race is composed of a 5k trail course with runners able to choose a 1, 3, or 5 lap option.  If you are opting for multiple laps, you’ll enjoy cheer from those in the tent as you run directly through the tent.  Who knows, you may choose to have a “refreshment” on your way through!
