Cote Dame Marie Update:
Due to poor snow conditions, Hanson Hills Recreation Area will not be able to host the annual running of the Cote Dame Marie Loppet.  However, our neighbors to the north at Forbush Corners are willing to serve as temporary course host for this year’s race.  To keep the MI-Cup schedule intact, we have decided to accept Forbush’s generous offer with a few modifications to our original race schedule.

This year’s race will feature the Michigan Cup Men’s and Women’s Skate Divisions only.  All Classic and Citizen Races will be canceled for this year.
