From the starting line on Ludington’s Lakeshore Drive, the half marathon takes runners north along city streets and into Ludington State Park, whose more than 5,000 acres lie along the shore of Lake Michigan. Located at the mouth of the Pere Marquette River right along the lake, the park’s trails and roads make up most of the 13.1-mile route for the half marathon.
