Lilac Festival Run & Walk – June 8, 2024

Lilac 10K Run & Walk

Join us on Saturday, June 8, 2024, to kick off the 76th Mackinac Island Lilac Festival with a great morning race to enjoy the early season beauty on the Island. The course will provide you with the tree-covered paved roads through the center of the Island, and tremendous lake views with the Mackinac Bridge on the horizon. This is certainly a race you don’t want to miss!
