The Duluth News Tribune did a write-up about the Voyageur Trail Ultramarathon we hope you will enjoy. Many thanks to Jon Nowacki for putting it together.
“Michael Borst crossed the finish line first at the 35th annual Voyageur Trail Ultramarathon and took an immediate left turn, finding a shady spot near the finish-line tent outside Carlton High School. He laid down in the grass with his hands behind his back and said, ‘Frigging Scott!!!'” (Credit: Jon Nowacki, read more at the link below.)
Last year around race date, Matt Flaherty from Runners World wrote a nice article about the Minnesota Voyageur 50 Mile as part of a series detailing some of the oldest 50-mile races in the country. It is a nice piece that talks a bit about last year’s race, and also covers some of the Voyageur’s history. Whether you’re new to the race or a grizzled vet, it is a nice read. Thank you, Matt!
