The Marquette Trail 50 consists of a 50-kilometer and 50-mile event held on Saturday.

The course is mostly single-track, climbing the 4 peaks: Sugarloaf, Top-of-the-World, Bareback, and Hogback.  All the peaks have views of Lake Superior, and portions of the course skirt its shoreline.

Much of the trail consists of moderate to difficult terrain, with significant climbs and technical areas.  According to Ultrarunning Magazine, the course is rated 3 out of 5 for Terrain ("Hilly"), and 4 out of 5 for Surface ("Trail with substancial rocks, roots and/or ruts").

The two races are capped to ensure a quality event.  The 50K fills up fast, so you might want to take advantage of the Black Friday deal and sign up early.
