Be sure to join us after the race for the Clarkston Culture Fest!! The festivities will begin at 10am, just a few steps away from Refuge Coffee, and will include live music, a kids’ activity zone, and a “cultural village” market with vendor booths highlighting the many cultures that make our city unique!

“The Clarkston Culture Fest aims to highlight the best of what Clarkston has to offer, and to share it with others. The theme is: “Educate, Appreciate, Celebrate.”  Join the fun as one gains education regarding the cultural diversity within Clarkston.  Gain appreciation of the various foods, music, languages, vendors and activities.  The day will be a grand Celebration of the unity within this small impactful community! “


For the first time ever, we will be starting and ending the race at the Refuge Coffee Co. garage in Clarkston! See below for a full race route!
