Hey Everyone...This is a great way to celebrate Earth Day...

I'll be doing the half.

Ok...by popular demand we are hanging out at the Downtown Lansing Los Tres Amigos...they open at 11am on Sunday...

The address is: 107 E. Allegan St., Lansing, MI

Here is a handy link for the restaurant with a map...

    Unfortunately with the course change due to flooding there was no way to avoid it. Hope u had a good run though.

      Thanks Chris. We were wondering if the coarse was compromised because of the flooding. All of our runs were successful despite the train with many new pr's.

    Half course was much better this year.

    April 21, 2013

  • Bob R.

    Good Luck to all!

    Making sure everyone got the message that the course is now almost exclusively roads, took out nearly all rivertrail due to flooding. Still a nice course. I won't be running this year but I want to wish you all a great race!

    Here is the final course. Sounds like there are fewer than 400 full marathon runners registered. http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/194956162

    Is there a beer tent post race?

    April 15, 2013

    • Jen

      Asked on Facebook and they responded with no! they want us to go and enjoy Lansing. Little disappointing, as every other marathon/half I have ran has had some sort of post race party.

      April 17, 2013

  • Jen

    Hi all, for the Lansing half I'm going to be running at a 9:05 pace, which will be right under 2 hours. If anyone is looking to go sub-2 let me know, I will be happy to run with you and help get that sub 2.

    2 · April 12, 2013

    • Kristen S

      Then you speed-demons can cheer the rest of us on when we finish! It's a win for everyone!

      2 · April 16, 2013

    • Dave T.

      Jen I plan to start out with you as well. Sounds like fun.

    Just heard back from the Lansing Marathon organizers - someone else can pick up your packet on Saturday for you, but they need to bring a photocopy of your ID with them.

    1 · April 13, 2013

    • Dave T.

      Great. Thanks for letting us know this.

      April 13, 2013

    March 31, 2013

    • Keith H.

      and the half and full course are the same route (with the latter another loop..).

      March 31, 2013

    • Bai N.

      quite disappointed in the full course

    March 30, 2013

  • Guillaume G

    Hi! Yeah, not registered yet, running behind things these days... Hopefully I'll be running ahead for these 13 miles, not behind! Good call on the charity, that will do for me.

    I finally ran 11 miles last week, just two more to go. Hey guys, if you haven't registered for this one yet, say no to first registration page regarding charities and then put our charity (CADSA Capital Area Down Syndrome Association) in the coupon code and you will get 10 dollars off your race, which we hope that you will then donate back to us under donations section at www.cadsa.org.

    March 26, 2013

  • Michelle S.

    Registered for the half...let's hope the weather is better this year :)

    March 19, 2013

  • Jennifer C.

    Hi, I just joined the group and was wondering what time you guys typically meet on the weekends. :)

    March 7, 2013

    • Jennifer C.

      Lol yeah, after browsing around I think I figured it all out. Thanks :)

    As noted below, if you want to help CADSA, put no for fundraising, and then write under the coupon code CADSA10. You will get 10 to 15 dollars off the run which you can choose to donate to CADSA if you wish, and you can also set up a site to get sponsors for CADSA if you wish. Let me know if you want to do the latter and I will walk you through it. Also, we will be providing t-shirts, so please let us know your size. This group means something to me as my eight year old daughter has Down Syndrome. I hope that you can help us grow.

    I just gave Mark some info regarding this race and funding. I am the program coordinator at the Capital Area Down Syndrome Association, and they have agree to let us use this race to fundraise. If you enter CADSA10 where you register or CADSARELAY (if you run a relay), then you will get $10-15 off your registration price, and can either donate this money to CADSA or set up a fundraising page for others to sponsor you in this. Hopefully Mark will post the flyer, explaining this more in detail when he receives it.

    Thanks in advance. I will be there jog-walking the half-marathon for my daughter and all the kids we serve with Down Syndrome.
