If you live in SE Michigan and haven’t run the Solstice you’re missing a very nice event. Not only is the course challenging but fun (if hills are fun), the race is a good value compared to other events these days. The shirt is a color, tech shirt, the post-race food and drink is as good as any local event (pizza, bagels, fruit) and every finisher gets a good-looking medal. Plus, how many times do you get to run on a horse race track? The first half-mile of the Solstice is on the track at Northville Downs.
