Run begins at 9:30 a.m.

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, and maple syrup enthusiasts alike! Join the Outdoor Adventure Center as we conduct our biggest event of the year, the first annual Pancake Lumberjack Run! Imagine seeing a live chainsaw carving, diving into a pile of pancakes covered in pure Michigan maple syrup and walking a fashion runway to show off your unique lumberjack style. These are all things you can expect to happen on this eventful day at the Outdoor Adventure Center. 

A free archery lesson will be given to the top three guests who show off their unique lumberjack style the best, so make sure you're dressed to impress with flannel! The lumberjack pancake run will cover half a mile on the Dequindre Cut (accessible for those with disabilities). Race fee includes a flat and fast half-mile course, custom wooden medal and pancake breakfast. Run with the maple sap!
