Register for the 2018 Kal-Haven Trail Run

The 2018 Kal-Haven Trail Run will be held on Saturday, April 14, 2018! Register today. The Kal-Haven Trail Run is the premier ultra-event in Southwest Michigan. Runners complete the 33.5 mile distance from Kalamazoo to South Haven either on their own or as part of teams of between 2 to 6 runners.  The event is $60 for solo runners, $35 each for 2- person relay team members and $30 each for 3-6 person relay team members. Registration includes a short sleeve technical shirt!

KAR Members receive a $10 discount on registration for the solo event, and this year KAR relay team members will each receive a $5 discount! Discounts are automatically applied by the RunSignUp registration system. The solo distance event is once again part of KAR’s Club Championship Series for 2018.

The event is organized by the Kalamazoo Area Runners and all race proceeds benefit Kalamazoo Area Runners and the Greater Kalamazoo Girls on the Run (GOTR), whose mission is one of educating and preparing girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living.
