Back 9 Endurance Run – Dry-run on Saturday, May 23rd

As many of you know, we cancelled the running of the inaugural Back 9 Endurance Run this year, and have postponed it until 2021. The race was supposed to be run last week, May 16th and 17th. The weather was great last weekend, and it would have been nice to have held the race. However, due to the current health concerns that have engulfed the world these past several months, and the stay-home, stay-safe executive order in Michigan, we made the decision in late March not to hold the race this year.

That said, to make the race better next year, and to test the markers on the course, we have setup the course this weekend.

We want to see how well we can setup the course, and if the route is one that works well for an endurance run.

We have setup the course markers tonight, and people can come out and run the route tomorrow, Saturday, May 23rd.

Mariah even ran the route late in the evening to see how it looks; and she will be at the Lodge tomorrow to run the route again — we want to see how the flags look in the dark.

For you, tomorrow, track your time on your GPS device (Strava, Runkeeper, Garmin, etc). See how far you run. Provide your GPS route showing you ran the course, and you will get a 10% discount on your food today at the Lodge (we are offering take-out currently), and 15% off your 2021 registration.
