It’s time to lace up the running shoes and get ready to take part in the 42nd Annual Canal Run.

The event features a half marathon and five and ten mile walks and runs, all along the Portage Canal.

Participants will head down M-203 and finish at Quincy Green in Downtown Hancock.

The event is put on by U.P. Health System—Portage.

Health and Fitness Manager Angela Luskin encourages people to come out and support those in the race.


Over 150 volunteers help make the event possible.

Last-minute registration and packet and bib pickup is being held today at the Finnish American Heritage Center from 3:00 to 8:00pm.

A pre-race pasta dinner is also being held at the center today from 4:30 to 7:30.
