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 2017 XTERRA Lake Superior Shore Run will still have the same amazing course and camaraderie as in years past.
The 4.5 mile hike was a popular addition to the event in 2016. It is for people who want to be a part of the event and who want to enjoy a one vista hike with a "Superior" view and will go up Bareback Ridge. The hike will start at the same location. There will be no age awards for this event, but participants will get a tshirt if they register on time.
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 23rd year of the event, being held on Saturday, September 16, 2017. 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.
Mark your calendars! Registration now available for 2017 race.
A special thanks to all of our 2016 sponsors:
