Information about the 5K and 15K Road Races

There are two options for runners / walkers.  The 15K is a run around Big Star Lake.  The 15K course is on a paved road around the lake which has a few gently rolling hills.  Aid stations are available on the course.  Split times are also available for 15K runners during the race.  Big Star Lake Association is the primary sponsor.  Assorted local businesses are also sponsors.

Awards are presented to the top three overall men and women participants in the following age groups based on the participant’s age on race day:

14 & under

15 – 19

20 – 29

30 – 39

40 -49

Pre-registered participants [registration prior to race day] also will be given a t-shirt.  T-shirts are first come / first served for participants who register on race day.

The 5K run / walk is also available for those who are not interested in the 15K.  The 5K course starts at the Lake Township Fire Barn and goes to the Boat Launch and back.  This is the most popular race.
