Please join us for the 2018 edition of the Marquette Trail 50 Ultramarathon Race Weekend in Michigan's Upper Peninsula!

The Marquette Trail 50 consists of 50-kilometer and 50-mile distances.
The course is mostly single-track, climbing the 4 peaks: Sugarloaf, Top-of-the-World, Bareback, and Hogsback. All the Peaks have views of Lake Superior, and portions of the course skirt its shoreline. Much of the trail consists of moderate to difficult terrain with some very significant climbs and technical areas.

According to Ultrarunning Magazine, the course is rated 3 out of 5 for Terrain ("Hilly"), and 4 out of 5 for Surface ("Trail with substantial rocks, roots and/or ruts").

We will also be hosting trail races for kids and a competitive 5k on Friday evening at the Forestville Noquemanon Trailhead. Check out the Kids page on our event website for more details.

Not running this year, but would like to participate? We have plenty of volunteer opportunities. Click VOLUNTEER on our race website for details...{We have exceptional volunteer incentives, including earning a complimentary entry for future use.} Happy Trails!
