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.

Runners unable to make into Holland for race day can still participate by completing the virtual race. All virtual full marathon, half marathon and 8K runners earn a commemorative race medal.
