About The MISH Waterfront Marathon
The MISH Waterfront Marathon in Gladstone, Michigan is a half marathon that takes place on the 24th of June 2023. It’s an event that runners in the Upper Peninsula won’t want to miss – it’s scenic and challenging with plenty of support from local crowds.
For starters, the route itself is quite stunning. The race begins at Little Bay de Noc State Park and follows a breathtaking path along Lake Michigan’s shoreline before looping back around toward town. Along the way, runners can take in views of lighthouses, sandy beaches, and rolling hills blanketed by trees for miles. There are also plenty of rest stops throughout the course for runners to refuel or take a break if needed.
When it comes to weather conditions during this time of year there can be some variability but typically expect mild temperatures ranging from low 60s Fahrenheit (15-20 Celsius) at the start up to mid 70s Fahrenheit (24-26 Celsius) during peak daylight hours – perfect running conditions! Additionally since this event occurs during summer months you can expect sunny skies most days which will only add more beauty to your run!
As far as crowds go there will be plenty of people lining up along Lake Michigan’s waterfront cheering on participants all day long! This kind energy really helps motivate those taking part so don’t forget your earphones! And speaking of music – if you’re lucky enough you might even get caught up in some live music happening near one or two points along the route as well which should make things extra special too!
Overall I’m confident everyone who participates will love their experience running this Half Marathon through beautiful Gladstone, Michigan alongside passionate supporters. If you’ve been looking for a great way to see what northern Michigan has to offer then look no further than MISH Waterfront Marathon on June 24th 2023 – sign up today and get ready for unforgettable memories!!
