Every year, L’Anse Creuse High School hosts a 5K run, virtual 5K run, 2 mile walk, and mini manatee mile. Last year we had 1,200 actual participants and 800 virtual runners from around the world. All proceeds are donated to the Save the Manatee Club to raise money to rescue and rehabilitate injured manatees. This event is held at Lake St. Clair Metropark, Michigan and run on a paved certified 5K course along the marinas and shores of scenic Lake St. Clair. All participants receive a commemorative manatee finisher's medal, race t-shirt and manatee bib. This event is dog friendly, as the first 170 dogs also receive a finisher's medal.

We are also offering our 3rd Annual Virtual Save the Manatee 5K. If you cannot physically participate in the actual race in Michigan, you can register for our virtual race and bike, swim, rollerblade, run, or walk your own course. Virtual participants receive a manatee bib, t-shirt, and a finishing medal for a $32.00 entry fee.

Thank you to everyone who participated in last year's event, we donated $26,500 to the Save the Manatee Club. Hope to see you again.
