Good news: You get a REAL finish line this year.
Bad news: You have to survive the last 15-miles and 4,000’ of climbing first 😂
Logistics: The start line is located in Jackson Park (Negaunee). Make sure ya know where it is. Get there early. We’re sending ya out at 10:00am. You’ll exit the park via a nasty uphill ORV trail. You’re welcome. Take your time. It’s gonna be a long day. On the bright side you get to do it during the day. Ya got that going for you.
You should make a note. The backend of the course (last 15-miles) is “out there”. I wouldn’t expect to see much help and about the only way outta there is to the finish line. We recommend double checking your gear. Make sure ya got everything. Think about water. Bring extra. Think ahead and be prepared.
Also… this year’s mini is more technical than it’s ever been. It’s so bad we probably shoulda charged ya more. Hopefully your training included pushing bikes.

P.S. If you see a cougar. You should be ok. Just don’t run.
