Marathons, Half Marathons and More


Grand River near Ada, Michigan

There are so many marathon regattas, half marathons and more today and we are barely into September nevermind the Fall season. My favorite today is the Grand River Marathon Regatta in Michigan because the water doesn’t have much of a current and if you happen to change your mind about rowing the double stake course you could row half the marathon stopping in Ada. But how would you get home with your transportation and trailer back in Grand Rapids?

Grand River Marathon Regatta will be held today, a head race with a starting point from Grand Rapids, MIchigan and a turnaround in Ada, Michigan to finish back in Grand Rapids, MIchigan will be hosted by Grand Rapids Rowing Association. That’s a 42.2 km double stake race course, 26.2 miles for the devoted rowers who make the turnaround or a 21.1 km  half marathon course straight from Grand Rapids to Ada. There will be 23 entries from 12 clubs brave enough to endure either course.

Petaluma and More

Two marathons are on the docket for today, the first Sunday of September 2016. The Petuluma River Marathon in its 13th year is surprisingly the old school event as the North Bay Rowing Club, established in 1983 is older than the newbie Isle of Ely Rowing Club founded in 2004. In any case both head races promise the long standing tradition of challenge that rowing always delivers. Cheers and much luck to all!
