The Original Traverse City Foot Race started in 1973 as a 10K and then in 1978 shifted to a 15K and finally 1989 added Traverse City's first 5K. Today, there's all 3 of those events and a half-marathon! Over 50,000 participants have crossed the Meijer Festival of Races finish line.
Free post-race photos compliments of Cherry Bay Orchards.
We will have photographers stationed on Front Street (near the finish) and at Chateau Grand Traverse (for the Half Marathon only). Check the Festival Facebook page after the race for photos!
Wear your race number on the front of your clothing. You will be recorded for your NET time which is actual start line to actual finish line. Timing is provided by Classic Race Management. They have been timing the Festival of Races for over 25 years!
