Island Time

May 7 & 8, 2021


Kick off summer with a vacation of a run in Island Lake State Recreation Area in beautiful Brighton, MI!


Hey Island Timers,

Thank you all for your patience and understanding in these uncertain times. We had all of our fingers and toes crossed that we were going to be able to sneak this one in with our small numbers but we've received our marching orders from the State and events taking place in Michigan State Parks are being canceled through June 30th. This was not the news we were hoping for but the health and safety of our participants and volunteers comes first!

You have some options regarding your 2020 entry:

All entries, unless changed, will be rolled over to the 2021 event, which will take place on May 7, 2021. If you plan to participate in 2021, no action is required on your part; we will manually enter you when registration opens next year and you will receive a confirmation e-mail then. We will waive any change of distance/time transfer fees for deferred participants.

If you are unable to participate in 2021, you have 2 more options. The first is to receive a credit with RF Events for 100% of the price you paid on your race entry. This would come to you as a coupon code, would be good to use on ANY RF Event, and would not expire for 2 years following the issue date. Codes will be issued on May 29, 2020.

Your final option would be to receive a 50% refund on your entry fee. We know what a delicate subject money is at this time, and we are attempting to be as transparent as possible in regards to why we are unable to offer a FULL refund. A large majority of the planning goes into the event well before race day; we spend 25% of the projected income in setting up the event prior to registration opening, from getting on calendars to nailing down all of our permitting. When our world was turned upside down from COVID-19, entry money came to a standstill. We are unable to provide a full refund because the money is simply not there. We're doing our best to come up with alternate solutions, and we hope you will consider deferring your entry to 2021, or accepting our 100% event credit!

If you would like to participate in 2021, no action is required of you at this time. If you would like your 100% event credit, or 50% refund, you can fill out THIS FORM by May 28, 2020. After May 28, 2020, we will consider all registrants deferred.

We're heartbroken that we won't get to pull out our leis and be on Island Time with you!

Stay safe out there,

The Dirt Crew

2 Mile, mostly trail loops will take you from the beach and around the shores of Trout Lake. Each loop gives you access to a fully stocked aid station and your crew. Stop and rest as often as you'd like... we'll be on island time!

The inaugural Island Time race is a personal journey, everyone’s race is different! Move for a set time or go a set distance, we’ll line you up at the start and you tell us when you're done if the clock doesn’t run out first.

Set a goal to watch the sun set and rise on the same run or to finish your first ultra marathon or go really big and make that goal to earn your first 100 mile belt buckle!
