!!!!UPDATE!!!! NEW DATE OCT 11 2020

I am sad to say I am postponing Lakeshore Mini Ultra

To turn a negative into a positive I have opted to have it on the same day as WB5K on Oct.11th 2020. This will mean I do not have to struggle to find an open venue with everyone postponing events-  we are locked in!  Lakeshore Mini Ultra will start first then the 5K will start.  So if you have a friend who thinks you are crazy for running for 4 hours they can still join in as a part of the WB5k (SEE TAB ON THIS WEBSITE or registration is also on Ultrasignup.com)


Lakeshore Mini Ultra Oct 11, 2020

Osborne Park, Willoughby OH

Lakeshore Mini Ultra has something for everyone! This is a 1-mile loop with a spectacular view of Lake Erie.  Runners and walkers will have 4 hours to complete their personal goals on a paved, flat course all while choosing the direction of travel each loop. We will have a fully stocked, traditional style, aid station (this is why we run Ultras!).
