UP 200 / Midnight Run / Jack Pine 30
Official UP200 Mileage: 65.3 miles from Marquette to Wetmore, 48.3 miles from Wetmore to Grand Marais; Inbound 48.3 miles from Grand Marais to Wetmore checkpoint, 65.3 miles from Wetmore to Marquette finish
The UP200 is one of America’s premier 12-dog, mid-distance sled dog races and draws mushers from around the United States and Canada. The first UP200 was run in February, 1990, after two years of planning by sled dog racing enthusiasts. The current race covers approximately 230 miles from Marquette to Grand Marais, with a return to Marquette along the same trail. The terrain includes stretches of near-wilderness, creek crossings, hills and valleys, and heavily forested land. Mushers say this is one of their favorite races, not only because of the challenging race, but because of the beautiful trail, the cheering crowds and warm welcome they receive at every checkpoint along the trail here in the Upper Peninsula.
