2017 Euguene Curnow Marathon – Race Wrap Up

Hello Curnow Marathon Participants,

Congrats on a successful race on Saturday! Our committee had a lot of fun putting this race on – I hope you had just as much fun participating!

We do have other pictures that should be posted to our Facebook page this week.

If you have any feedback, we’d be happy to hear it. Every year we compile suggestions from participants and our race committee and decide what to tweak for next year. In particular, please let us know how your race experience was with the number of participants (455 people started the race, which was a record for us). We are considering a cap for next year. Let us know if you think we should allow fewer or more participants.

Our sweepers reported that the trail was almost spotless. They only found a few pieces of litter over the entire 26.2 miles, some of which may not have been ours. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Thank you for a great day on Saturday! If you can’t get enough of the course, the Minnesota Voyageur Trail Ultra (50 miles) is in two weeks on almost the same route. We would love to see you there either as a participant or volunteer.

Both the Curnow and Voyageur are put on by the Northern Minnesota Track Club. We are a nonprofit based in the Duluth area; we also put on a series of free trail races in the spring and fall. Check out our website for more information about our group: http://nmtc.run/

Have a relaxing, restful week!
