2017 will be the 6th running of the Gear Western Country Half Marathon. The course is half on country roads in and around Long Lake and half on the Luce Line trail, a crushed limestone rails to trails state trail. The course is rolling but not hilly and there is a country theme to the event with music following. The half marathon runners receive fleece flannel shirts and finisher medals for all as well as awards for top age group finishers.
The Borton Volvo 5K is a nice short run around the town of Long Lake with same finish as the half marathon. 5K runners receive the same great shirt and finish line music and refreshments. New for 2017 is the hobby horse division, we are looking for someone to set the hobby horse half marathon record.
