The Oktoberfest event offers the most scenic courses you'll enjoy in Michigan for a marathon and 1/2 marathon. You'll enjoy many views of Spring Lake and very nice homes. No industrial centers nor run down neighborhoods. While much of the course is flat, you will take on a few rolling hills to keep you honest. The 1/2 marathon and "first" lap of the marathon is the same course. The "second" lap of the marathon takes you a little further down and back on Judson Rd.
The 5 K will have 1 aid station. The 1/2 marathon will have 6 aid stations and the full marathon will have 7 aid stations. Eace aid station will be supplied with water, Gatorade, ice chips, Honey Stingers, bananas and pretzel bites.
