Tahqua Trail Run

25K, 10K, Kid’s 2K
Tahquamenon Falls State Park
Paradise, Michigan
August 11, 2012

 

"Although this is the first race of its kind I've ever done, I cannot imagine there could be a more spectacular course anywhere in the world. We came as a family, with the kids running the 10k and adults the 25k. We will be back next year. Absolutely loved the first nine miles and am planning for how to train better for the last six. The kids had a blast. They are experienced x-country competitors and this race added a dimension of excitement that has them "hooked" on trail running."

-EMS XC Team

Events

25 Km

The course begins on the Tahqua Trail 4.3 miles west of Whitefish Bay in eastern Lake Superior. Runners follow a dirt forest road along the Tahquamenon River for one quarter mile until they reach the North Country Trail (NCT). The single track NCT winds through spruce swale, pine ridges, lush bogs, Jack Pine savannah, and past the Camp 10 and Water Tank lakes, where the occasional moose can be spotted. Runners reach Lower Tahquamenon Falls nine and a half miles into the race. The NCT then transitions into the heavily forested Lower Falls trails. One mile later the course merges with the River Trail which travels along the Tahquamenon River. The River Trail features old growth hemlock and yellow birch. Runners hear the roar of the Upper Falls encouraging a strong finish near the top of the second largest waterfall east of the Mississippi. Runners bused to start from your choice of the Upper Falls Parking Lot (Finish Area) or downtown Paradise (at the Whitefish Township School). Bus schedule will be available two weeks before the race. Aid stations stocked with cold water, cold HEED (Hammer High Energy & Electrolyte Drink), and Hammer Gel are located at 3.5, 7, 9.5 miles. Runners are required to carry a 20 oz water bottle or other functional hydration system which can be refilled at each station with water or HEED. Volunteers with pitchers will quickly refill your water bottle or hydration system with the fluid of your choice.
Start: 8:00 AM. Saturday, August 11, Tahqua Road, 4.3 miles west of Whitefish Bay. Map

After a 1.7 mile loop up into the forested highlands above the falls the course descends and joins the River Trail as it winds along the banks of the Tahquamenon River. The trail is shaded by old growth hemlock, yellow birch, and dense stands of sugar maple. The course finishes on the trail above the Upper Tahquamenon Falls. Runners bused to start from your choice of the Upper Falls Parking Lot (Finish Area) or downtown Paradise (at the Whitefish Township School). Bus schedule will be available two weeks before the race.
