Organizers of Marquette's Original Trail Race are pleased to announce that we’ll again be partnering with XTERRA, as one of many trail runs they sponsor around the world. The 2015 XTERRA Lake Superior Shore Run will still have the same amazing course and camaraderie as in years past.
The XTERRA Lake Superior Shore Run is a trail half marathon with the Eagle Mine 5 km run staged annually in early fall at Little Presque Isle, north of Marquette. This year will mark the 21st year of the event, being held on Saturday, September 19, 2015. This event has been the biggest fundraiser for the Superiorland Ski Club’s youth programs since 1994. The course is one of the most spectacular courses in the country for trail running. It traverses rugged and beautiful terrain with incredible scenic vistas that often stop runners in their tracks to admire the scenery. The Upper Peninsula Health Care 1 km Youth Run, Eagle Mine 5 km, and the Half Marathon wind through rugged single track trails with stunning backdrops of pristine Lake Superior and the majestic Huron Mountains.
