Martian Invasion of Races

Blue Care Network of Michigan
Jul 24, 2020 - Jul 25, 2020

Hello faithful Martians,  We come to you today with a heavy heart, feelings of defeat and our apologies. We had anticipated an event date of July 25th would be a possibility but at this time the mounting roadblocks have reached their peak. The Martian Invasion of Races passes through multiple locations, and while we had re-adjusted to deal with some of those re-locations, we continue to receive "no-go" orders that make the event impossible to put on in person on July 25th with the current number of participants. This has been an incredibly trying spring as an event company and we are so sorry that this will be affecting you as well. We know you've trained hard and were probably as hopeful about July as we were.

All courses are wide, hilly single track trail that will kick your butt! We love it and hope you will too!

The Road Ends Course is five tough but beautiful miles along the Crooked Lake path! As hilly as any section of the half or full marathon, this is a kick butt trail course that is sure to please ... and beat you to a pulp!

Half, Full, 50K starting on Silver Lake Beach you will head south until you reach the Losee Lake Trail Head. About ¼ mile up this trail you will stay right and cross the park entrance road. Bear left on the road 100 yards and you will come to a small circular parking area on your right. Follow the Potawatomi trail out of the south end of this circle area and continue to follow “Poto” in a clockwise direction until the “short cut” at the Rogucki Bench. Head east on the shortcut to Glenbrook. You will cross Glenbrook Rd. go left on Glenbrook 50 yards and enter the gravel road on your right. About 100 yards down this road you'll hook up with “Poto” again and turn right, across the bridge and on to the finish following “Poto”. When you get to about mile 12.5 Poto turns right, which is away from the lake. This is so the mountain bike traffic does not get to the beach. You will continue straight south on this trail to the beach and finish line.

You won’t get lost race day because of our marking, but your first solo trip around this course may be a bit tricky, but worth the adventure!

Camping mugs are such a seemly unimportant addition to your camping checklist. An extra that you can live without, right? Wrong!

At least I sure think so! It just doesn’t get much better than snuggling around a campfire with one of the best camping mugs you can get your mitted hands on, filled with your favourite drink.
