Minnesota Voyageur 50 Mile Trail Ultramarathon - Swinging BridgeFounded in 1981, the Minnesota Voyageur 50 Mile Trail Ultramarathon is one of the oldest trail ultras in the nation. The race follows a rugged, varied, out-and-back course that takes runners on a journey from Carlton, MN through Jay Cooke State Park and heads northeast over difficult, rough woodland trails to the Duluth, MN and back. Enjoy scenic overlooks of Duluth, MN and Lake Superior, the iconic Swinging Bridge over the St. Louis River, and the infamous Power Lines.

The start, finish, and all race day festivities will be at the Carlton High School. Weather for the MN Voyageur can be extreme. There have been several years when it was hot and humid, including 2003 when it was brutally hot with 90% humidity. In other years it has been cool, in the mid-50’s, and wet. Plan for everything except snow – at least not so far!!

Congratulations to all of the participants in the Minnesota Voyageur! We saw lots of smiling faces out along the trail, enjoying the humidity and beautiful mud. Thanks, too, to all of our volunteers. Results have now been posted to the Northland Runner website:
