UP 200, Midnight Run, and Jackpine 30 Sled Dog Races
The UP200 is one of America's premier 12-dog, mid-distance sled dog races and draws mushers from the United States and Canada. The current race covers approximately 250 miles from Marquette to Grand Marais, with a return to Marquette along the same trail. The terrain includes stretches of near-wilderness, creek crossings, hills and valleys, and heavily forested land. Mushers say this is one of their favorite races, not only because of the challenging race, but because of the beautiful trail, the cheering crowds and warm welcome they receive at every checkpoint along the trail here in the Upper Peninsula.
