Lace up your trail running shoes and join in for the inaugural BONFYRE TRAIL FEST run at the DTE Energy Foundation Trail in Waterloo State Recreation area, the largest park in Michigan’s Lower Peninsula!

The Bonfyre Trail Fest run at the new DTE Energy Foundation Trail is unlike any other trail in the area. As you travel on foot through pines, along steep embankments and around boulders, you’ll wonder if you’re out west… until the stunning lakes and wetlands remind you that you are indeed running in PURE MICHIGAN!


Choose your distance! Distances are exact… or thereabouts:

Green: 5 Miles of roller coaster, flowing fun on foot! 5 hour cutoff makes this one hiker-friendly!

Kame: 10.7 Miles beginning with easy flowing fun, then upping the ante to more challenging miles with climbs and a few fun features. 5 hour cutoff makes this one hiker-friendly! (Must keep 25-minute per mile pace throughout.)

Winn: 18 Miles with a mix of flowing fun, challenging climbs and descent, followed by a little more challenging stuff. 5 hour cutoff.

Rain date: November 13, 2021
