Race Series Events

The 2024 Greater Lansing Area Race Series will feature a number of races from the Greater Lansing Area starting in March and ending in late September. When putting together this year's schedule, we attempted to space out the events giving our runners more time to recover between each race. It's still not perfect, but we will continue to make improvements as opportunities arise in the future.
