Dear Potential Racer,

I'm going to give you the Marji Gesick low-down. Ready? This race is:

Now part of the NUE (National Ultra Endurance) Race Series. We're proud to be part of it and cannot wait to introduce racers from across the country to our hidden gem of a corss-country race.

Self-Supported. There are no official aid-stations. GPS is required. Yes, we sign the course, but we highly recommend GPS as a backup. Signs can fall down, bears might eat them, jerks rip em' down. Shit happens. You need to be prepared for all of the above. Road Rules apply. What does that mean? There are no volunteers at any road crossings. You must obey traiffic laws and look out for yourself. In the event of an injury or accident... call 911. 

13,000 feet of veritcal gain. 100 miles (or slightly more) Welcome to Marquette County. Rocks. Roots. Gnar. Punchy climbs. Jump lines. Flow trails. The descents are as hard as the climbs. I'm not kidding. Don't believe me? Ask someone who's done the race. You never stop working. One participant this year said it was "like a ninja warrior course for bikes". 

The Hundo a little too daunting? Take a shot at 5,000 feet of vertical gain and 50 Miles. Same drill. Rocks. Roots. Gnar. Punchy climbs. jump lines. Flow trails. The decensts are as hard as the climbs.

Not a biker? Cool. We have running events. Same course. Only one guy has completed the 100 Mile Ultra Run. 

Belt buckles are the coveted award. Visit our website or Facebook page to learn more about that. The real victory is finishing. Through two-years 56% of people attempting the 100 Mile race have failed. We're not kidding. You should be incredibly pumped just to finish. 

Sound a little intense? We don't sugar coat stuff. You need to be able to take care of yourself.

Sign up. Lets find out if you're Tuff Enuff. Take the Danny Hill Challenge and sign the dotted line!

 

Ride On,

Todd
