2013 MIDNIGHT RUN PURSE
The Midnight Run is an eight-dog, 78 – 80 mile race. This race is typically a faster race than the UP200. The UPSDA is excited to present a new Midnight Run trail for 2013. The Midnight Run draws some of the finest eight-dog teams in the region and the competition is fierce!
The Midnight Run trail crew have been working all summer on the trail and has approximated the mileage at 78 – 80 miles.
The Midnight Run teams will begin to leave the chute from downtown Marquette at 9:00pm. Mushers will travel about 45 miles, the longest leg of the race, to the Chatham checkpoint (Michigan State University Facility). In Chatham, musher’s will complete a mandatory 5 hour layover period, and will finish in Munising on Saturday morning with the first teams arriving in Munising at about 8:30am.
The second leg of the race, Chatham to Munising, is about 33 miles for a total of 78 – 80 miles.
