Run a beautiful single track route from Cross Village to Mackinaw City in northern Michigan.  The marathon starts at Wycamp Lake and winds up and along the Sturgeon Bay bluffs overlooking Lake Michigan. 50K runners will depart from the course for a 5 mile route up the gorgeous and highly runable Sturgeon Bay Trail.  After this scenic detour they will rejoin the marathon course  and descend into wildflower blanketed lowlands before arriving at Goose Pond.  This is the half way point and the start of the Half Marathon.  The next six miles feature pine needle carpeted trail through rolling forest.  The trail opens up as it reaches French Farm Lake, a sandy bottomed wilderness lake with towering pines along the shore.  The route follows its shoreline for several miles before runners enter a dense balsam fir forest for 2 miles.  The last 3 miles feature a converted rail trail that is flat and smooth.  Runners finish at the Mackinaw City School athletic grounds.  The course is well marked with colored flags, directional arrows, and mile markers.
