Sometimes it’s not the finish line that matters. It’s the struggle that went before.  – author unknown

Key Stats
Route: Ludington to Manistee National Forest loop
Distance: 100 miles
Elevation Gain: 1,600 by computer but 2,600 ft. in real life test.

The course will ONLY be signed at two-tracks, snowmobile trails and other intersections where some added clarity might be needed. Signs often fall down, get stolen or, worse yet, reversed. You are required to use turn-by-turn GPS/TCX instructions on a navigation device or cue sheets. At a minimum, you MUST have printed cue sheets with you throughout the race. We HIGHLY recommend you set up both so you always have a back-up. If all else fails, find someone to ride with all the way in.
