United Financial CU Freeland Walleye Fest 5K/10K 2019 Overview
United Financial Credit Union is once again proud to present the 10th Annual Freeland Walleye Festival Race for 2019! Join several hundred participants in running and/or walking USATF sanctioned 10k and 5k Freeland Rail Trail/road courses. Or run along with the kids on a 1 Mile trail fun run course. The Walleye Fest race is moving back to the weekend this year and will take place on a Sunday morning! And THIS year, the 10K and 5K events will be separated out so runners can participate in BOTH events if desired.
Included with entry:
Awesome custom finisher medals
Professional timing results

New this year, up to 75 runners will be able to participate in the Lunker 9.3 (6.2 mile and 3.1 mile combined distances) where they’ll run in both the 10K and 5K events at a rate less than should they register for both individually. We’re separating the 2 events with the 10K starting at 7:30AM and the 5K at 9:00AM. Lunker 9.3 participants will receive a pint glass signifying their accomplishment and a long sleeved tech shirt in place of the cotton blend t-shirt.
This race is being organized as part of the 34th annual Freeland Walleye Festival through a joint effort between United Financial Credit Union, TriToFinish, Walleye Festival Organizers and Tittabawassee Township with proceeds being placed back into the Freeland community through the Freeland Lions Club, a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
