+++ PLANNING FOR 2014?::: The 6th annual MQT TRAIL 50 will be August 15th & 16th 2014! Join us for the sixth-annual Marquette Trail 50 Ultramarathon. The course consists of a 50 kilometer and 50 mile event.  We will keep the same great race course that received rave reviews in 2013. We will start and finish at the Noquemanon Trail Network - Forestville Trailhead. The course is mostly single-track, climbing the 4 peaks: Sugarloaf, Top-of-the-World, Bareback, and Hogsback outcrops.  All the peaks have view of Lake Superior and some of the trail runs along the largest lake in the world!  Most of the trail is easy to moderate running with a few significant climbs and technical areas.  Unless it is raining, there in no place where you will need to get your shoes wet. 

Not ready for a solo ultra, then consider forming a team THE 50K ULTRAMARATHON RELAY, and run the trails, more details on our website....

50K Relay begins: TBA ,Solo 50M and 50K Events begin at: TBA, Saturday, August 16th 2014

Noquemanon Trail Network - Forestville Trailhead [on trails North of Marquette, MI]:
Follow Wright Street North [RIGHT] off of US-41 [when heading West] for approximately one mile to Forestville Road.  Turn LEFT on FORESTVILLE ROAD... Continue 1.6 miles on rough pavement. Turn RIGHT across an active railroad grade {went too far if you end up at Dead River Falls – a great hike;o}.. follow rough dirt road to left.. LEFT onto better gravel road briefly. LEFT towards Forestvill Trailhead Sign...RIGHT in Forestville Trailhead that includes a parking area and polebarn (0.7miles from pavement). START-FINISH AREA at polebarn.
CHECK OUT OUR WEBSITE UNDER - LOCATION for additional maps... OR {CLICK} the MAP link above on this page for coordinates.


50 mile runners who are not at the Forestville Aid Station by 2PM (at 31 miles = 14:30 min/mile pace) will be asked to switch and take a 50k finish.  50 milers MUST leave the Sugarloaf Aid Station inbound by 12 hours (6:30 PM = ~15:39 min/mile pace) and finish the race to be a confirmed finisher.

I expect 50K runners to be able to finish in 9 hours.  Aid Stations will have volunteers tracking runners and their progress.

Local time: 12:05 PM
