It’s not unusual to see people running the White Pine Trail through Cedar Springs. But last weekend’s runners had a big challenge ahead of them—to compete in a 200 mile relay from Comstock Park to Cadillac and back.

It was the second year for The Fred Meijer White Pine Trail 200 Mile Relay. Thirty-three teams of 6-12 runners each set out at different times during the morning of August 9. The relay included 36 relay “spurs” or legs, each ranging from 2 to 9.5 miles in distance.

Proceeds from this event benefit the Friends of the White Pine Trail and go for trail upkeep.
