After the race relax at the heated festival party tent and toast your finish with friends. The post-race party starts at 10:00 a.m. with music throughout the day by Acoustic Relapse, Northland College Jazz Band, Ashland High School Jazz Band and Nate Parent. The award ceremony for the Cruisin’ the Corridor 5K & 10K races starts at 10:30 am. inside the Bay Area Civic Center.

At 3:30 pm all Marathon & Half-marathon awards will be presented in the heated festival tent.

Later that evening starting around 7:30 pm runners and area residents will enjoy dancing the night away at our Blues & Brews Festival while you indulge yourself by sampling some of the over 50 varieties of microbrews and area mead wines. All of this will be served to you by the finest micro-brews and winery the Midwest has to offer.
