The 24th annual Noquemanon Ski Marathon is taking place this weekend in Marquette, MI. The event kicks off late Friday afternoon at the Al Quaal Recreation Area in Ishpeming with the junior races. Race registration will take place Friday Night at the Superior Dome where over 1,000 participants have already signed up. The feature races take place on Saturday, with a virtual option for participants who feel more comfortable attending that way.
