Head for the Finish Line: Michigan Fall Race Roundup

Whether it be apple or pumpkin picking with family, building the courage to visit the haunted houses around Halloween, cheering on the best football teams or exploring Michigan’s countless cider mills, you can never really be bored during fall in Michigan.

On top of all that, Michiganders are proudly adding one more item to their to-do lists this season: signing up to participate in one of the many marathons, 5ks, dashes and walks being held right here in the mitten state this fall.

While some are for great causes, others offer spooky themes and kid-friendly fun. Whatever your preference might be, there are plenty of opportunities to lace up those sneakers this fall and head straight for that finish line.
