Organizer: 2015 Lansing Marathon A Non-Starter

(WLNS) – There are indications that there will not be a Lansing Marathon this year.

According to an online statement from race director Owen Anderson, there are no plans for a 2015 version of the Lansing Marathon. Anderson says, in part, “the race is on hiatus while we figure out the next best steps and how we can best serve our participants.”

Last year’s race in May had 246 finishers. In his online message Anderson said organizers struggled to find the kind of support a race of that magnitude deserves. Anderson went on to say “I will greatly miss working in Lansing this year, but I look forward to directing a marathon which has the full support of the running and business communities, as well as the media and local government.”
