Charleviox Marathon

113 Michigan Ave, Charlevoix, MI 49720, USA


Registration is now open for the 15th annual 2021 Charlevoix Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K and 5K.


 Welcome to the Charlevoix Marathon! We are so excited to host you on one of the most beautiful running courses in the world.  Whether you're running the full marathon, half marathon, 10km or 5km course, you're in for an amazing start line on the famous Bridge Street, along Lake Michigan and finishing in old town Charlevoix and Round Lake! 

There are so many reasons that Runner's World Magazine named the Charlevoix Marathon as one of the best "Small Town Marathons" in the United States.  Maybe it's the great lodging, where you can roll out of bed and walk to the start line, or it's the beautiful packet pick up/expo location overseeing the Beaver Island Ferry and gorgeous Round Lake.  Maybe it's the great dining before and after the race in historic downtown.  The course ventures through beautiful Charlevoix neighborhoods, around our ski mountain "Mount McSauba", down the tree lined roads, along the lakeshore and then turn around at the vast Little Traverse Bay.  The course has just enough running traffic to feel the excitement of a big marathon, without any of the pains of major crowds.

 Whatever your reason, come be our guest at one of the best marathons in the United States!
