Minnesota Voyageur 50 Mile Trail Run

July 10, 2012

The Minnesota Voyageur 50 Mile Trail Run is ON for 2012!

Kudos to the race directors and volunteers who have been working their tails off to find a safe alternative on very short notice so that this event could happen for 2012. You guys are rock stars!

Heads up – this year’s course has been altered courtesy of Mama, and will be harder than usual 😉

Register here.


Half Voyageur Trail Marathon

July 3, 2012

The Minnesota Half Voyageur is ON for 2012, despite the recent flooding in the Duluth area!

The race will start and finish at the Lake Superior Zoo parking lot on July 14, 2012 at 6 am. Since the floods severely damaged parts of the usual course, this year’s run will be rerouted and will be a lollipop style out and back which will still include the beloved Powerlines and Jarrow’s Beach sections. Also some new and interesting single track from the zoo to Magney-Snively. Race day registration begins at 5 am for those who procrastinate – better yet, get your registration form here, and you can run a full marathon for only $10 if you are willing to volunteer at the full Voyageur 2 weeks later.

Several volunteers are still needed to help mow (July 7), mark the course (July 13), and crew the aid stations on race day.

Word is still not official on the full Minnesota Voyageur Ultra (perhaps 2 loops of this course?).
