The area is beautiful in general, but you don’t see much of that on the course as it’s mostly on a bike trail. The expo is a small tent with maybe one vendor, but it’s also a very small race, so not a big deal. We stayed in Petosky at a hotel there, but there is a small hotel at the finish line if you can book it early enough.
This was state #15/50. It’s definitely one of our coolest race shirts, which is a good thing because if we can’t run/race well right now, we might as well look good in our shirts!
