Runners Prepare for Charlevoix Marathon

Today walkers and runners crowded the streets of Charlevoix to register for a favorite annual event.

The Charlevoix Marathon will be held Saturday morning.

There’s a marathon and half marathon where people can walk or run through the scenic streets and bike trails of Charlevoix.

Runners have been preparing for weeks, and it’s something they look forward to in the summer.

Tim Bridges plans to run in the event. “It’s my second marathon I’m looking forward to nice weather in the morning, it’s supposed to be cool which should be good for running.”

The streets along the course in town will be blocked off, but organizers encourage people to come cheer on the runners and walkers.
