Noquemanon Ski Marathon and Marquette Trail 50 Ultra Marathon Combined Award
The Noquemanon Ski Marathon is once again teaming up with the Marquette Trail 50 Ultra Marathon in 2019 and offering a combined award to the fastest overall male and fastest overall female. This combined award between two premiere Noquemanon Trail Network events was first offered in 2018 and proved to be an excellent challenge that drew interest from many.

To qualify for a combined award, participants must complete the full 50K Noquemanon Ski Marathon and run the Marquette Trail 50 Ultra Marathon 50K. Times will be added. Not only do competitors have to be fast, but they need to leverage their individual skiing strengths to conditions as skiers can choose to compete in either the classic or freestyle disciplines.
