What is referred to as the Third Coast of the United States, Lake Michigan holds a special place in our hearts. We've all vacationed there, frozen our butts off swimming in August, watched incredible sunsets and searched for Petoskey stones.
While we might not be able to visit all the Great Lakes this summer, we wanted to create a challenge that keeps you connected to the 'Best Kept Secret' of the Midwest. Run, walk, roll, hike, cycle, swim, or paddle 494 km (307 miles) to cross Lake Michigan.
What do I get with my order? This package includes a Lake Michigan Challenge entry, premium medal, and downloadable bib.
How does the challenge work? To complete this challenge, you will record 494 km (307 miles) of activity. Our results platform will keep track of your total distance logged from the activities you submit until you reach the finish line!
When can I submit results? Now through December 31, 2023
How do I submit results? After you register, you will receive an activation email. Think of this as your check-in at the Registration Tent before you head to the Start Line. You can use any app or device to track your run. You can submit results by entering your activities manually or connecting directly to one of these apps: Strava, Garmin, fitbit, Polar, Suunto, or Coros. Activities will start counting towards your challenge from the date you activate the challenge.
Do I have to run? Absolutely not! This is your race and you get to complete it at your pace. When you submit results, you will be able to select what type of activity you used to complete the distance.
Is there a Great Lakes Challenge shirt? Yes! You can add the Great Lakes Challenge shirt to your order here.
When will my order ship? This package is in stock and now shipping! You will receive an email confirmation when your order has shipped so that you know to keep your eyes peeled.
