So we can verify headcount for food, and setting up groups for the weekend.

The Plan

We are dedicating Friday and Saturday to riding the west-end. Groups will consist of 8-10 people lead by two or more group leaders. By Saturday night you should see everything Marji has to offer from Mile 65 to the Finish line. The tentative plan for Sunday – let hundred-milers head over to Harlow for a morning rip, and send the fifty-milers out to check the first five to ten miles of their race starting in Marquette. Use your GPS Sunday to find and stay on course. Campers have been assigned to a group based on survey feedback, you can review the groups when you get here. In between rides, we’ll feed you, let marji veterans tell their stories, and give you some time for Q&A.

  • GPS
  • INSECT REPELLENT, or be faster than the mosquitos.

Are you camping with us?

Pioneer Circle is ours at Noon (Thursday). Roll in, find a spot, and get set up. Go ride or explore the town. Camping is reserved for those who paid to camp with us, space can be claimed on a first come, first serve basis. Leave space for friends though, cause we all need to fit into sites 51-75.

Check-In with us at Site 51.

We’ll have someone at Site 51 from 4:00-8:00pm. You can check-in, get your Ti Marji Camp mug, a name plate, and a beer. If you miss check-in, don’t worry too much about it, you can check-in Friday morning at Jackson Park.

Rippling River Resort has a general store and bar. Check it out.

Did you load the GPX-file?

These are last year’s course files. Due to a variety of factors such as natural gas pipeline construction and property limitations there will be some minor changes to this year’s course. But these are close enough for Marji Camp purposes. If you need help with the GPX-file, or if you have questions about how to use  your Garmin, Todd will be around all weekend to help. Hit him up.
