The Marquette General Health Systems Noquemanon Ski Marathon is a 51K cross country ski race taking skiers on a journey from Ishpeming (home of the National Ski Hall of Fame) to Marquette where the finish line is right outside the Superior Dome, the world’s largest wooden dome stadium. It’s sister event, the mBank Half Marathon is a 25K race that utilizes the second half of the Noquemanon course sharing the finish line outside of the Dome. Both races reward both classic and freestyle skiers.
The course is spectacular with granite outcroppings, Lake Superior vistas, a 1000-foot descent over the last 25K, and friendly volunteers along the trail. The race also shares a weekend with the Ski Hall of Fame induction ceremonies. Come meet the elite ski world and discover the Noquemanon this January!
