Experience the stunning and picturesque trails from the shores of Lake Superior, to the rolling and twisting back country, and cresting the peak of Brockway Mountain.  Enjoy the friendly people, welcoming communities, challenging trails, formidable competition, and the peace and tranquility that blossoms from the deep backcountry of the Keweenaw Peninsula.

The Keweenaw Peninsula is one of the most unique geographic features of the Great Lakes region.  "Lake-effect" snow storms contribute to the average 273 inches of snow-fall each year making the CopperDog 150 the perfect choice for a late season, March race.

Pro-class race teams are invited to join the fun and pit their and their team's skills and conditioning against other word-class competitors.  The best ten times take home a piece of the $27,800 race purse.
