“Tomorrow is looking like it’ll be a great race,” said Nicole Swenson, Noquemanon Ski Marathon race coordinator. “Yes, it’s going to be cold, but that’s what everybody’s here for. They’re here to enjoy the outside, to be with friends and family, and to enjoy the snow and the winter atmosphere. I’m just so excited to get this underway and see what tomorrow holds.”

The races begin with the 50K Classic Saturday at 8:10 a.m. at Al Quaal Recreational Area in Ishpeming. All the races will finish behind the Superior Dome.
