Algoma Shanty Days 5K Run/Walk 2013

About This Activity

This new route provides a 3.1 mile snapshot of Historic Algoma! Start at Algoma's Farm Market Kitchen, and race through the town past historic Von Stiehl Winery. Then, over the 2nd and 4th St. bridges, to catch a glimpse of the last remaining Shanty. Take a whiff of Bear Cat's smoked fish and run past 2 city parks up to the Algoma High School. From here it's smooth sailing! Travel down hill along the beautiful lakeshore of Lake Michigan to the finish line. Enjoy the race and the scenery!
