About This Activity


Located in the remote northeastern Upper Peninsula of Michigan, the Two Hearted River captured the imagination of Nobel Laureate Ernest Hemingway who wrote “The Big Two Hearted River” about the adventures of Nick Adams who departed the train in Seney and headed northward to remote river country east of Muskallonge Lake.  Runners in the 50K and Marathon will have the opportunity to travel via single track through this country on their journey past wilderness lakes, wild rivers on their way to the finish at the Upper Tahquamenon Falls.  This course has the capacity to transform the way you see nature and the world.

50K & Marathon Course

The 50K and marathon start near Muskallonge State Park on Lake Superior. The course follows mostly single track with some dirt forest road.  The route takes runners past wilderness lakes and rivers to the finish at the Upper Tahquamenon Falls.  Aid stations are located at established campgrounds on the route or on dirt forest roads, so spectators can view runners at 5-6 locations along the course.  The route is well marked with colored flags, directional arrows, and mile markers.  Runners are bused to the start from the Upper Tahquamenon Falls (site of the finish).  Buses depart at 5:30 a.m. Gear bags will be transported back to the finish. 


Half Marathon Course

The half marathon starts and finishes at the Upper Tahquamenon Falls.  The course follows the Giant Pines, Clark Lake and Wilderness Loop single track north of Tahquamenon Falls.
