Complete the Triple Crown and gain lifetime entry into the Hall of Pain

The Triple Crown consists of three of the toughest events on bike or foot. From the grueling singletrack of Marji Gesick, the relentless wilderness of The Crusher, or the unpredictable weather of The Polar Roll, 906 Adventure Team events are no walk in the park. Athletes that complete one from each of these three events below are granted lifetime entry into our Hall of Pain and are eligible to attend our annual “secret event.”

You do not have to complete all three challenges in the same year, you just have to complete one of each sometime in your lifetime.

Get an annual invitation to “the secret event”

Beginning in 2020 we’re going to have a secret event that is only open to those that have been admitted into the Hall of Pain. The day before the event you’ll be given GPS coordinates to a meeting point. Then we’ll transport to our home for the weekend. Each year will be a different location, no two secret events will be the same.

Weekend festivities will include some suffering, but not as much as what you’ve endured to gain admittance into this exclusive club. Way less. Think rolling and running party. Sweat & smiles.

THE HALL OF PAIN

These are the people that know our region all too well. With 30% of Michigan’s land mass and only 3% of its population, the Upper Peninsula is a wilderness of barely-maintained logging roads, jeep trails and singletrack. They’ve endured snowstorms, heat waves and mosquito gulch. They know how to commit, persevere and finish.

This is just a sampling of those that are eligible to be members of the Hall of Pain. Think you’re qualified? Submit your application today.
