I want to thank everyone who entered last week’s Mercy Health Seaway Run and Lake Michigan Half Marathon race entry giveaway! I really enjoyed reading your stories and reasons for wanting to run this race, which takes place on Saturday, June 24. The two winners, chosen at random, are listed below…and if you’re not a winner, please take advantage of the awesome race discount code that race organizers are offering to MRG readers. {Get that discount code here»}
The winners of one free entry to the race distance of their choice are …

Jennifer: “I would love to run this race. I have been looking at it and heard the course is really nice. I am not very familiar with Muskegon so it would be fun to see more of it. I have only been to Heritage landing for Irish Music Fest and Pere Marquette Beach for the Foreshore Adventure race.”

Meagan: “June 18 will be the third anniversary of my bilateral mastectomy. What else would I do to acknowledge that but run through a part of the state I’ve not seen in a long time? :) ”

Congratulations, Jennifer and Meagan! Please email me at heather [at] michiganrunnergirl [dot] com to claim your prize.
I’m excited about this race—I’ll be be there for the Healthy Lifestyle Expo on Friday, June 23 and will run the half marathon on race day. This longtime Muskegon running weekend also includes the Seaway Run, a 15K and 5K run and community walk. Some 3,300 runners participate in race weekend. All new this year: a post-race street party in downtown and new expo location.
I hope to see many of you there! It’s always so much fun meeting up with fellow Michigan Runner Girls and Guys, in real life, at race expos. {You can learn all about this year’s race weekend by listening to my recent conversation with race director, runner and pacer Andrew Buikema. Listen here » }
