Description
The UP200 is one of the top 12-dog mid-distance races in the Midwest, as well as being an Iditarod qualifier. The UP200 trail covers 230 miles of challenging terrain from Marquette to Grand Marais, Michigan and back again through forested land and near-wilderness. Mushers face hills, creek crossings, deep snow, and isolated trail. This is a true test of skill and stamina! The first leg of the trail is from Marquette to Wetmore, a distance of approximately 64 miles on the upbound leg, and 60 miles on the downbound leg. The Midnight Run is an eight-dog, 90 mile race. This race is typically a faster race than the UP200. Midnight Run mushers will again start in downtown Marquette traveling to Chatham and then returning to Marquette for the finish. The Midnight Run draws some of the finest eight-dog teams in the region and the competition is fierce! The Jackpine 30 is a 26 mile race.
