Thousands of runners have come to Maybury State Park to train for a reason. There’s a great 8-foot-wide paved path that runs through a thick canopy of trees. The course is a bit deceiving with its slight upgrade to the turnaround then a slight downhill back to the finish line. You get to see everyone as it takes on the shape of an upside-down lollipop, and the out and back section is where it gets fun. You never know who or what lurks in the shadows and the trees of the park that is the former home of an asylum! Aid stations will be at every mile with water and Gatorade Endurance Formula on ice.
Maybury state park is one of the benefactors of Covid as a relatively unknown park seeing 200,000 visitors a year that number tripled the last two years. Now it has become a training mecca. The surrounding city of Northville and Novi is home to dozens of great restaurants, shopping and bars. We are limited to 650 athletes in this event due to parking capacity.
