MARQUETTE, MI-- The trail for the UP200 and Midnight Run sled dog races is in great condition.
That’s according to “Ikey,” the UP200 race headquarters coordinator. She says Wednesday’s warmth and overnight cold has really packed it down and made it a smooth run for the dogs. Ikey says even Iditarod mushers love to race in the U.P.
“They said that we are so much like the Iditarod, with the area, the land layout, the weather, and we are a qualifier for them to get into the Iditarod, as well,” she says.
