Run just one race or go for the Trifecta!

Join us for a weekend of remarkable trail running at Gaylord’s Treetops Resort. The Treetops Trifecta is a micro-stage race with 5K, Hill Climb and Half Marathon events over two days at one of Michigan’s top resorts.

Treetops Trifecta Event Details

The weekend begins on Saturday morning with a 5K on newly crafted single track at the Treetops Main Campus.

The course takes runners through our alpine ski area and the forests surrounding the Masterpiece golf course. This is followed by a 1K hill climb on the resort’s alpine ski area on Saturday afternoon. The hill climb offers 300 feet in elevation gain, which makes this event accessible for runners who are new to hill climbing events.

The event concludes on Sunday morning with a half marathon staged at the Treetops North Campus. An ultra scenic course layout includes a single track through the Headwaters Land Conservancy, Sturgeon River Preserve, and Treetops Project Nature. The landscape offers stunning views of the Sturgeon River Valley and the Vanderbilt Highlands.
