Event Canceled for 2021

In an unprecedented turn of events, our special event permit to use the Vasa trail was denied for the 2021 event. As such, we are forced to cancel this year's event and refund all 2021 entries.

The DNR has let us know the trails are open and the park is still open race weekend. The race course follows the marked pathway. You are still welcome to go out and run, we just can't be out there for you!

We hope to see you all again for this fun fall event in 2022.

A fun, scenic November run to keep you motivated through the fall months! 

RF Events presents Run Vasa! A beautiful 5K, 10K and 25K run through the Vasa Head Trail in Northern Michigan. If it snows, not to worry, all the more fun for everyone! Bring it on!

Sweet add-on swag!



Vasa is a nice wide, beautiful trail with all the beauty northern Michigan has to offer. Soon to be your favorite trail to run!

Michigan’s premier cross-country trail through the pristine serenity of the Pere’ Marquette State Forest of Northern Michigan.

Maintained by dedicated volunteers and supported by public donations, the Vasa Pathway is operated by the Traverse Area Recreation and Transportation Trails, a non-profit organization dedicated to developing and preserving non-motorized trails in the Grand Traverse region.

For more information on the Vasa Pathway and Tart Trails go to www.traversetrails.org

Named after King Gustav Vasa, a monarch in Sweden several centuries ago, the Vasa Pathway is also host to three of the Midwest’s most popular ski events.

A portion of your entry will go to maintain the Vasa Pathway but feel free to drop a couple bucks in the trailhead donation box!
