Like many events, the Town Crier 5K, 10K and Half Marathon Races has converted into a virtual event
in response to COVID-19 and the need for social distancing. 

What does this mean? Participants complete their chosen course within a span of two weeks as a solo participant.
By expanding the race dates to two full weeks, organizers are able to offer a social distancing supported
experience and greater flexibility for participants. Our Race Director, Susan Poolman and race committee, agreed to
offer an app as a way to give participants a more authentic race experience with live phone tracking and the ability for spectators to engage with participants remotely.

Finishers will receive a specially designed T-shirt, Certificate of Race Completion AND
a "Thank you for being so Awesome!" savings coupon for next year's event.

Please join us as we strive to continue our award winning programs that provide valuable continuing
education and important life skills for our local students.

Be safe, stay healthy!

Run Lake Michigan's Beautiful Art Coast.

Friendly People, Great Art, Cozy B&B's and Delicious Food/Drinks.

The Town Crier Races deliver a fun and scenic view of the Saugatuck/Douglas, Michigan area.
The beauty of the lake shore course makes it a favorite of runners year after year.


No one is a stranger on the courses. Every runner’s accomplishments are celebrated and you’ll have a cheering section whether you brought your own or not. The small town vibe just can’t be duplicated and you’ll feel welcome right away.

Since 2002, our event proceeds provide a majority of the funding for the Saugatuck High School Cross Country and Track Teams. Help make a difference in the lives of student athletes and have a great time doing it.
