The Michigan Harvest Virtual Run Series is comprised of four races of varying distances and timed to highlight the harvest of crops that are a large part of Michigan’s agricultural community.  The Cherry Run takes place from July 15th to July 31st and features a 5k. Apple Dash participants can choose a 5k or 10k  option and run in this virtual race from August 1st  to August 31st. In the month of September, experience the Hops harvest as the Hop Trot offers a 5k or 15k option.  The Grape Stomp concludes the series with a 5k and half marathon option, offering suggested courses with views of Michigan’s vineyards.

Race packets will be sent out late July 2021.

Each race participant will receive a medal for each race completed, plus one to celebrate the Harvest Challenge. In addition, to the medal, race packets may also contain gifts from our sponsors! Wearable merchandise will be available for purchase.

As part of The Festival Foundation’s commitment to helping preserve the land in the Grand Traverse Region, we will be raising donations for the Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy (GTRLC). GTRLC has preserved 1000’s of acres in the Grand Traverse Region.  Many of preserved lands contain farms, nature areas, and trails that you may choose to run on during this virtual series. Our goal is to raise $2,000 that will help fund the Festival Foundation’s commitment to protecting the land in the Grand Traverse Region.  This goal can be reached if every participant makes a minimum $3 donation.  Help us help GTRLC. 


Please note: Many of the suggested racecourses may cross intersections or run alongside roads, please use caution when running around traffic areas. Also, in light of COVID-19, please be sure to follow your region's guidance on social distancing.
