Clarkston State Bank Back Roads Half Marathon and 10K has officially moved the venue to Independence Oaks County Parks for the 2014 race. This event will prove to be as exciting and challenging as the 2013 race. We will still incorporate running some back roads of Independence Township, park trails and rolling hills/tree covered trails. Please save the date, November 9, 2014 and plan to be pleasantly pleased at the new course.
Congratulations on your 1st Backroads Marathon, the best organized race I’ve ever participated in – looking forward to next year’s race. This was my 4th race this year and the other’s were nowhere near organized and offered what you guys did – from the chili/beer, massages, music and even the silver things (whatever you call them) to keep you warm… I could go on and on….FANTASTIC JOB!! I applaud everyone one who made this race a spectacular successful event.– Fred
