September 7th, 2019
Headin up North for the Moose Mountain Marathon, which is a portion of the Superior Fall Trail Race.
The Moose Mountain Marathon is a point-to-point (100% trail) Marathon which traverses the Sawtooth Mountain Range on the Superior Hiking Trail in the far reaches northern Minnesota . The course parallels Lake Superior, the greatest freshwater lake in the world, climbs to near 2000′ peaks with breath-taking vistas of the lake and inland forests and crosses countless whitewater rivers and serene streams while meandering through mystic Boreal forests. The race starts at the Cramer Road Aid Station and finishes at Caribou Highlands Lodge in Lutsen. Runners will have access to three aid stations between the start and finish, and will never go more than 7.1 miles without an opportunity for aid. This is hands down the most difficult and most scenic marathon in Minnesota and possibly the country.”
