Register for 2021 Mackinac Island Fort2Fort 5 Mile Challenge

We have reached our registration limit - Registration is closed.

A unique event celebrating Fort Holmes and Fort Mackinac on Historic Mackinac Island to help support the efforts of Mackinac Historic State Parks!  In it's 4th year, this challenging race is for runners and walkers of all ages and will be one to remember!  Start outside Fort Mackinac  to run or walk through beautiful paved trails,  past historic Island landmarks to Fort Holmes—the highest point of the Island—then travel the scenic paved trails back to finish at Fort Mackinac!

All participants will receive FREE ENTRY to Fort Mackinac and other Mackinac Island attractions throughout the day, plus a great shirt and a unique burnt wood medal!

Can't make it to the Island on May 15th? Or not comforable with an In-Person race but want to support the MHSP? Join us in the 2021 Virtual Run!  You will receive the bib, shirt, medal and free Fort Mackinac pass, and can upload your virtual race time to the results page.

To allow for social distancing and a safe event, the Fort2Fort In-Person race will have a rolling start from 8:00 a.m to 9:30 a.m. (start mats will be active the entire time). Participants will start when they arrive, at their own convenience, and are asked to leave the finish area after they've received their post race snacks and picked up their shirts. 

There will be no congregating allowed in the start/finish line area so please arrive only when you are ready to begin the race and plan to leave after.  We encourage those already on the Island to take advantage of the early start times to accommodate those arriving via the Ferries.  Face masks and social distancing will be required both pre and post race for all participants, spectators and staff. 

Bibs will be mailed to all participants, so please verify the correct mailing address during the registration process. Shirts will only be mailed to Virtual participants, in-person participants will pick up their shirt after the race.

Note: Covid 19 guidelines will be monitored to ensure the race is in compliance at the time of the event.  Participants will be notified as soon as possible if any adjustments/accommodations need to be made.

Thanks for your help in making this a safe and fun event!
