Escape the heat and join us at our beautiful venue for the inaugural Ode to Laz Ultra event. This will follow the traditional theme of Lazarus Lake’s original Big Dog’s Backyard Ultra.
At 9:00 a.m. contestants start a 4.167 mile trail route. Repeat as long as you wish.
Be standing at the start line every hour to continue the race and complete your next lap.
At 9:00 p.m. we switch to a paved closed park road, then back to the trail again at 9:00 a.m.
Complete each lap within the hour, with no outside assistance.
The “last runner standing” to complete one more lap than all other contestants wins!

One of the most beautiful parks in Michigan The largest single elevation change includes helpful stairs Enjoy the overlooks if you have time! 1/3 of the loop is moderate single track to take your breath away 2/3 of the loop is technical single track to challenge you, but the woodlands trails in Holly are gorgeous The Whoa Zone at the public Heron Beach is a blast.
