It is a 10K across a bay of Lake Superior from Ashland to Washburn WI. It is done at night with ice illuminaries lighting the way.
During the race they even set off fireworks! There were over 2600 cross country skiers this year and almost 600 snowshoers. Emily did the snowshoe'ing.
I sucked it up and volunteered to drive around the bay and pick the girls up at the end! I had such a great time watching all the people cross the finish line. The fastest skier finished in about 23 minutes! The first snowshoer finished in about 42 minutes.
It was perfect weather and we had a great time. This is the hotel on the lake where the race starts. And look at the cool sledding hill they have for the kids!
And this is my favorite Road on the trip!
