Bruno’s Run 10 mile and 50k -“Outrun the Bear”

We are excited to announce the first Switchback Endurance race in the UP! Bruno’s Run trail is a picturesque rolling single track trail that winds around several small lakes in the Hiawatha National Forest near Munising. This trail is a hidden gem and a favorite of people who know about it. Run one loop for the 10 miler or 3 loops for the 50k. If you are coming from out of the area you may want to combine your trip a visit to Pictured Rocks, Tahquamenon Falls, Marquette, or any of the other amazing places in “God’s Country,” the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
