Welcome to Marquette County.

We commit the following: We’ll find a way to make it go, and go in a way we’re proud to call it a 906AT experience. It’s as important to us as it is to you. We will work with RAMBA and NTN Trails to explore signage alternatives in the event we need to run Marji across a couple of weeks. September is far enough away that we’re going to let things play out further, and we’ll develop a game plan for multiple scenarios. Here’s the main takeaway: we plan to run Marji Gesick – with signage and in a safe way capable of resonating with the Marji community you’ve helped us create.  If you haven’t already, get ready to #findyourlmits. We have a date with #unfinishedbusiness.

“I’ve done some hard stuff. Leadville, Maah Daah Hey 100, Heck Epic, La Ruta de Los Conquistadores, Lumberjack 100, Butte 100.

Hands down, Marji is the most terrible of them all.” – ‎Matthew Webb‎

Don’t be a #quitter, have a plan that’ll get you off the mat

We’ve partnered with Rob Lee, one of the top endurance coaches in the world, to build training plans for every level of rider. If you’re looking for a personal best on our short race or you’re trying to reach the podium on our long race we’ve got ya covered. The weather up here in The U.P. is unpredictable, prepare for it.

It’s all about community.

We asked you to #adapt in 2020, and you did. Now we’re asking you to join us and #forge ahead. 2021 is about doing what you do best, making the most of what you have, and getting better every day.

While a lot of races out there are run by for-profit companies, that’s not the case for Marji Gesick, Polar Roll and The Crusher. All of our events are productions of the 906 Adventure Team, a 501(c)3 whose mission is to empower people to become the best version of themselves through outdoor adventure. We don’t have a large staff of people (two, to be exact) or significant overhead, and that enables us to donate a significant portion of race revenues in two ways:

Since 2015, we’ve given back more than $141,000 to the trail-builders of RAMBA, NTN, Sisu Dirt Crews, WinMan and the DCNT. We also support youth adventure programs in three communities and have plans for that number to grow in the near future.

In 2021 we’re building a learning management system to train 150+ volunteer Adventure Leaders, and have our eyes on the future: planning to grow from 500 youth served to thousands. Together with your continued support and a network of dedicated partners, we will connect kids with each other, their communities, and give them a healthy alternative to time spent on devices.
