Annual "Run/Walk Your Bass off" 10K.

Runners come from all over the Midwest and beyond to participate and receive one of the unique T-shirts.  

Whether you are a serious runner or a casual runner you will enjoy this event.  It is well marked, furnished with a lot of water stops, ends with great refreshments, and is a wonderful family event.

The starting point of both races is at Runkle Lake Park on M-69, east of downtown Crystal Falls.  The races are sanctioned by the Upper Peninsula Road Runners Club (UPRRC).  The courses are part rural and residential with the longer course winding through rolling hills on a scenic route.

There are trophy awards, medallions, and prizes galore.  We have runners from 7 yrs. to 60+ yrs.  There is a Masters Division for male and female runners in both the 10K and Half Bass.  Organizers encourage participation, but if you do not run, come out and watch.  For more information on the bass run www.runyourbassoff.com
