Direct from the Director

Race Director Jack McKaig

After the highly successful 2013 event the race committee and the villages of Mancelona and Bellaire are excited about the upcoming February 1 event.

As you may have heard, we are bringing back the original 50 kilometer race.  Shanty Creek Resorts purchased approximately 200 acres over the summer;  the new ownership of the Chief Golf Club has generously agreed to allow our use and suddenly all the land we lost to new home construction and oil and gas exploration has been replaced.

Across from the 50 kilometer will be the new 20 kilometer finish as Summit Village at Shanty Creek.
