NEW for 2019

Listen up!   There are a few changes this year:

  • NO drop bags at Ojibwa – that’s right, NO drop bags for the 80-mile, and no drop bags at Ojibwa for the 160 mile. Pack smart – don’t underestimate the weather – be prepared for extreme cold, strong wind, high humidity and everything in between. Conditions will change throughout the time you are on the trail. Bring extra layers.
  • 160 mile participants will have 1 drop bag at Park Falls.
  • The Ojibwa and Park Falls checkpoints will have water, pop and some food stuffs.  But as always, don’t plan on a full meal at Ojibwa.  At Park Falls, 160-milers will have the option to purchase food at the Bistro (the checkpoint is hosted by the Bistro).  It is best for you to plan on being as self-sufficient as possible, which aligns with the spirit of the event.
  • No stove, fuel, pot or calorie requirements.
  • Specific light requirements – read the Gear Requirements page for full details; show up with good quality lights and backup batteries for your headlamp/bike light and red blinky lights, or you will be required to purchase them at gear check.
