Official Website


Join Gazelle Sports on July 17, 2021 for the toughest race you'll ever love!

Morning start is sold out! Limited spots left in the evening start.

On the 10k course, you'll catch the quiet of rural roads, the twists and turns of natural wooded trails, then the challenge and reward of a dune climb that will take your breath away- literally!

To ensure a safe in-person event, we will be capping each start window to ensure our ability to provide a safe experience for all participants, staff and volunteers.

***NOTE: All runners will be assigned a wave start time. 

Registration opens at 9:00am on May 1, 2021, and it will sell out. Bookmark this page, and set your alarm!

Lake Michigan RTS combines Road, Trail, and Sand to provide a truly unique race experience along the Lake Michigan shoreline. Whether you’re a road racer looking to mix things up a bit, an avid trail runner, or just a running adventurer, either course has something for you.

The best part? All proceeds benefit P.O.R.T. through Helen DeVos Children's Hospital Foundation.

Please be aware that this is a challenging race- it will start out on the road, head into hilly trails, and through soft dune sand at a steep incline. 

A special thanks to Michigan Awesome as our presenting partner for Lake Michigan RTS 2021!
