Michiana’s longrunning Sunburst races has dropped the marathon for the event this year.
Organizers say they plan to focus on the shorter races.
The marathon went from 800 finishers a few years ago to under 250 in 2017. That prompted organizers to cut it.
The race on June second will still have a half-marathon, 10-K and 5-K.
Travis Bladecki is the race director for Sunburst. He says with everything that goes into planning a marathon, it wasn’t worth it anymore.
