Veterans Day, November 11th - There are around 19 million veterans according to the Department of Veterans Affairs. Which means, you probably know a veteran. Seek out a veteran today on Veterans Day and simply acknowledge their service to our country. Who knows, you might hear a great story or make a new friend. That veteran will be honored to know you appreciate their service and sacrifice.
As a runner and a veteran myself I am honored to be part of this community of those who have served our country. Military service and running have both had enormous positive effects on my life. To all the veterans out there, thank you for your service and happy Veterans Day. ~ Eddie, US Army Veteran

I just wanted to put a shout out to you for making my 1st Full Marathon such an AMAZING AND MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE. With having Race Joy so my family could monitor my progress and meet me at different places along the Marathon to cheer me on, to all the water/gatorade stops on the course and for having so many volunteers and police on the course. Thanks for a truly amazing day.
Thank you for all you do to put on an amazing race day experience!!!

Gazelle Girl Half Marathon is now SHE RUNS Grand Rapids. Race day is May 1st.
"Over the last ten years, our city, our nation and our world have all changed and the last 18 months in particular pushed our perspectives to open more broadly in acknowledgment of what’s most important- caring for each other. Gazelle Girl has always aimed to be an inclusive event, and that commitment has only deepened as we move into year ten, so it's time for the event to evolve- including a new name, a new logo, and a renewed commitment to authentic inclusivity of every She who strives to be the best version of herself through movement. She Runs Grand Rapids will maintain the heart of Gazelle Girl and expand upon the invitation to every She who runs."

Help us carry what we’ve built through Gazelle Girl into a new experience with a new name, a new date and a renewed purpose. Together with every woman, every She, who runs, let’s step out and say “I can, and I WILL”.

She Runs Grand Rapids || May 1, 2022. Registration is now open.

Thank you so much for putting on a great event on Sunday! I was a first-timer and did the full. HOT. AS. HECK. Slowest full yet, but I finished with a full heart and a stupid big smile on my face, so it was a win 😊. I’ll be back again (just maybe might train for more hills lol – Cedartucky flatness < G.Haven to Holland rollers!). Your openness about “poop” 💩 cracks me up. My husband knew that, beyond the obvious last-name awesomeness, you were putting on the perfect race for his filterless wife that talks openly about alllll the things LOL!
Thanks again 😊

Run Michigan’s West Coast

Sunday September 12, 2021

Holland Haven Marathon runners experience the beautiful coast of Lake Michigan as they travel from Grand Haven to Holland. This USATF certified, point-to-point marathon follows Lakeshore Drive past the summer cottages right into downtown Holland. The early September weekend allows for mild weather and a final opportunity to qualify for the Boston Marathon. Boston qualifying hopefuls can make the cut only one day before registration opens.

The Holland Haven Half Marathon begins at Camp Geneva along the Lake Michigan coastline. Runners follow the scenic Lakeshore Drive past the beaches and into the City of Holland. The flat and fast course is comprised of paved bike paths along Lake Michigan and Lake Macatawa. This one-way race is one-of-a-kind in West Michigan, uniting communities in a unique event.

The Holland Haven 8K race is a great segue into longer distance races. The 8K race is a flat, out-and-back course. As a mid-distance road race, it is accessible enough for the novice runner yet incredibly challenging to experienced racers. All ages are welcome to run or walk the race.

Thanks Eddie Kline for making Holland Haven Marathon 2020 happen. Without your determination to have this safe in-person race my Boston dream would have not been possible.
With a virtual Boston on the books for one of the longest marathon cycles of my life I looked into courses to run. We spend our summers in my hometown of Ludington when the heat and humidity swarms the MD/DC area we now live in. Weeks earlier I had run a lovely 26.2 mile stretch from Ludington to Pentwater and just assumed I would do the same. Found the Unicorn in a year of canceled events, Holland Haven marathon, and put myself on the wait-list, #63. I was shocked when my opportunity to sign up arrived a week prior. Eddie was wonderful in helping me sign up and secure a place a the start educating me on the event and all protocols in place for a safe run. My "journey" marathon turned into a hard effort run where I had the course mostly to myself and had to rely on my abilities to manage pacing and mental support. It was a different race experience but made me all the stronger for it. We can do hard things solo. We can also come together to celebrate each and every solo effort we make. Ran down a 2nd place female finish (1st Masters as a new 40yr old) and 2nd fastest and most successful marathon effort on a not so typical build-up. Journey on folks! Grateful for the Holland Haven Marathon crew. THANK YOU a million runs! ~ Meg Ryan (Montgomery County Road Runners, MD) mitten born marylander
A week later than planned (thanks to a sick kid and ER visit), a little longer than expected, and a little slower than expected, but I ran the half marathon course today! Such a beautiful course!
My wife was able to get some photos of the first wave yesterday. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?vanity=evensophoto&set=a.4425543960850459
