Registration for the 2016 Kal-Haven Trail Run on April 9, 2016 is now OPEN!


The Kal-Haven Trail Run is the premiere 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 $45 for solo runners and $30 for relay team members and includes your choice of a short sleeve technical shirt or a Head Sweats running cap (images available on the registration site)!

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 2016.

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.
