The Kalamazoo Marathon has runners from across the country — some years every state. Thanks to our partnership with CARA, the number of Illinois runners last year jumped up to 142. We want more CARA members running with us! Runners love our small price and big experience.
We’ve been named as a “Must Run” by Running Times and USA Today, and “Michigan’s Best Road Race” by “Michigan’sBest . . .” We’re the only Michigan race with the MyLaps app and runner tracking, just like Boston. We have free vanity photgraphy. And we have super-soft, high-tech shirts — gender specific in cut and color. If you sign up for the Kalamazoo Marathon before the end of February, we’ll mail you a free super-soft, high-tech, long-sleeved training shirt. (We will start mailing them in mid-December)
We know this sounds too good to be true. You get a great running experience with super crowd support (Bacon Station, Popsicle Hill, etc.), two shirts, a neat medal, a free beer, free vanity photography, MyLaps tracking, and NO extra registration fee. But, yes, our 77 sponsors and the support of Discover Kalamazoo make this one-time promotion possible. Use the promo code CARA2019. Act today!
