Trail Run in Pinckney Recreation Area
This race, now in its 33rd year, started before a single knobby bike tire rolled around the Potowatami Trail. "Poto", is a big bad loop of hilly kick your butt wilderness single track trail. The 12,000 acres of Pinckney Recreation Area remains a pristine and wild, even though it's only a 55 minute drive from metro Detroit. Race options include a 5 mile, half-marathon, marathon and 50k. There is a 3.5 hour cut off for the Half Marathon. There is an 8 hour cut off time for the Marathon and 50K. All Trail Marathon Weekend courses cover rocky, rooty and hilly terrain often along a single track trail, so strollers are not allowed on the course. There is no race day registration for this event. This is a cupless event, please bring your own handheld or bottle and help us reduce the waste generated in state parks. This is event #1 of The Serious Series. Register at Costs vary. 
You may transfer your registration from one distance to another for a fee. Contact or you may complete your transfer at packet pickup. We strongly encourage you to complete all transfers prior to race weekend. The transfer fee does increase as race weekend approaches. You may not transfer into a race that is sold out.
