Dig Deep Race Events and Presenting Sponsor Short’s Brewing Company are once again collaborating with organizers of the MUTT Race and the Bay City Morning Rotary Driathlon to bring back the 5th annual Red Moon Trail Run! The Red moon – or Sturgeon moon is a traditional name for the full moon that occurs in August and was named by Native American fishing tribes who knew that sturgeon in the Great Lakes were most easily caught under it.
The Race: Come out to Midland City Forest in Midland, MI – same site as the popular Snow Moon Trail Run – as runners embark on a 5k, 10k or 25k race along wide trails (not single track). Runners completing multiple laps will have split times as they pass through the 5k finish arch for each lap until they complete either their 10k or 25k events.
Short’s Brewing Company is back to present the Red Moon Trail Run after another awesome night at Snow Moon Trail Run this past February. This year we are offering the option to run the 5K and 10K events during daylight hours for those who prefer.
All participants will receive a professionally timed, USATF-sanctioned event with Red Moon Finisher Medals and a Red Moon/Short’s Brewing Pint Glass. Online participant photos as runners pass through the finish arch will also be made available online and will be free of charge to participants for download or sharing.
This is a USA Track & Field Sanctioned event. A portion of proceeds will benefit the Eagles of Midland 2110 and their community efforts.
