About This Activity

General Description:  The scenic courses for both running and cycling events run through the Village of L'Anse, along the shore of Lake Superior and north woods of Baraga County.  The roads for all events are paved with a thin dirt shoulder.  The roads will not be closed to traffic.  Participants are requested to run/walk/cycle along the side of the road.  Cyclists please do not obstruct traffic and obey all traffic laws.  A helmet is required for all cycling events.  Dress appropriately as wind off of the lake can be breezy and cool.

Half Marathon:  Race begins near the Aura Fire Hall and ends at the BCMH Rehab & Fitness Center.  This course meets up with the Pequaming run/walk at the 5-mile marker.  A shuttle will bring you to the start of the race.

Tour da L'Anse Cycling Events (1/2 Century or 22-Mile):  All events begin and end at the L'Anse Waterfront Park near the Warden Electric Plant.  The 22-mile non-competitive route is flat for the first 10 miles, followed by uphill to downhill stretch, with return to flat and fast.  The 52-mile (1/2 century) competitive event follows the Skanee Road with three challenging uphill stretches.  Return to downtown L'Anse by way of Townline Road through Aura to Second Sand Beach and Bayshore Roads.  "King of the Mountain" awards will be presented to the fastest climbers in the 52-mile event.
