HealthQuest presents its 2nd Annual Shore Fun Beach Run, an exciting and rare opportunity to run the beautiful sandy shores of Oscoda, MI.  Featuring both a 5k run and walk as well as a 1 mile kid’s run, this is an incredible event for the entire family and one of the only runs in Michigan that takes place entirely on the sand. If you love art shows, you are welcome to check out our sister event “Art on the Beach” happening just one block away! And of course after the run continue to have fun at the Oscoda Beach Park soaking up the sun and playing in the waters of Lake Huron. As this is a beach, runners please understand that this may involve running in the water at times and uneven sand. Wear shoes you don’t mind getting wet and dirty!

All profits go to HealthQuest, which will put the proceeds to work in the community. HealthQuest is a local organization of volunteers dedicated to inspiring and educating the community to thrive and live healthy, happy, balanced and energetic lives!
