Stony Creek "Back To The Beach" Half Marathon - 10k - 5k

2017 Race

Well the darn weather got us again for the 2017 race but at least it didn’t snow.  While it was a little wet, we had another very successful race day on Sunday May 21st with 1350 people who signed up to run or walk and 300 race day volunteers who ensured everyone had a great time.

Together with the help of fantastic Sponsors we raised over $25,000 again to help support many wonderful charities, groups and trails improvements. Medals 4 Mettle received a check for $5000 this year and several local charities received BIG checks as well including The Great Lakes Burn Camp, Special Dreams Farm, Michigan Transplant Team, Macomb County Special Olympics, The Boys and Girls Club of Washington Township.  Our trail improvement projects this year included 2 benches along the boardwalks in Shelby Township and Half Mile markers on the 6 mile loop at Stony Creek Metro Park.  We also purchased another drinking fountain for the “Friends Of The Polly Ann Trail”.  This fountain will be located where the Paint Creek and Polly Ann trails connect west of Lake Orion.

So Thank You to all of you who participated this year.  Next year’s race will be the 8th Annual and will be held on May 20, 2018.  Look for registration to open in early November of 2017 and we hope to keep the Sun Of A Beach on the weekend agenda too.
