Registration is now open for the UP200, Midnight Run, and Jack Pine 30 races. Race weekend is February 15-17, 2019. Mushers who register by November 1 will be entered into a drawing and could win half their registration fee back. We'll choose a winner from each race. Mushers can register online at www.up200.org. See you in February!

UPDATE: The UP200 race purse has been revised at the suggestion of the mushers. The payouts for 11th - 15th places were increased, and the payouts for 1st - 3rd places decreased slightly. Everyone finishing in the top 15 should now be able to win back their registration fee and some of their travel expenses.

Don't forget to register by November 1 to be eligible to win back half your entry fee! We'll pull a winner from each of the three races.

Yes,UP200 mushers, there IS such a thing as a free lunch! This year the Grand Marais Women's Club will treat each of our UP200 mushers to lunch at the Grand Marais Checkpoint. You'll receive a voucher in your musher packet at the pre-race bib draw. Some good ol' Yooper Hospitality just for you!

If you are planning to make a hotel reservation for the 2019 race weekend, we suggest you do it soon, as there are several events going on in the area and rooms are filling up. It's easier to cancel a room than find one at a later date. The race weekend is February 14-18, 2019. right now we have 10 mushers entered for the UP200 and 6 for the Midnight Run. Snow is on the ground and looks like it's going to stay!

CHANGES TO JACK PINE 30 TRAIL
We altered the trail course for the Jack Pine 30 slightly to move it away from highway M-553. This will make it safer for the teams. More details are on the website at www.up200.org

Also, the race will now start AND finish at the First Baptist Church in Gwinn. Handlers won't need to move their trucks and equipment from one location to another.
