There are four more Great Lakes out there.
The Great Lakes Marathon Series is a collaboration of 24 marathons that take place along the 5 Great Lakes. The Great Lakes Marathon Series is for runners who are interested in experiencing a variety of marathons along the Great Lakes, while at the same time making a positive impact on the eco-system of the Great Lakes Basin.
The series is for fast and slow runners alike with individual prizes being awarded based on the number of Great Lakes races you complete throughout your running career. We will award prizes at benchmarks along the way, with a grand prize for those runners dedicated enough to finish all 24 great lakes marathons in their lifetime.
In addition to the individual commitment from each member in the series, we have partnered with the Alliance for the Great Lakes, a 4-Star rated non-profit devoted to protecting and restoring the Great Lakes.
