Marquette Fall Enduro raises money for Noquemanon Trail Network

Over 350 racers gathered at Marquette Mountain on Saturday to race in the Marquette Fall Enduro, with funds going to the Noquemanon Trail Network.

According to NTN’s website, its mission is to secure, develop, maintain and promote the use of a non-motorized trail network throughout the Central Upper Peninsula of Michigan. NTN relies on the support of the community and generous land owners to keep trails open and available to the public.

The Marquette Fall Enduro is not only a race and fundraiser but a way for biking-lovers and friends to gather together and enjoy the kick-off to the October month and end of the biking season.

“Seeing everyone out here kind of schmoozing with their buddies, their friends, and having a really good time out here,” Nic Dobbs, race instructor for Marquette Fall Enduro, said. “I think everyone is well aware, too, that we are raising money for the trails out here.”

The first race began in the morning around 10 am with races throughout the day, ending with a night race at 7:45 p.m. with awards to finish the day.
