Step one? Complete.

If you completed long version of The Polar Roll this past weekend (30 miles of bike or shoeshoe), then you’re one step closer to completing The Triple Crown – The Ultimate Endurance Trilogy.

That’s the good news.

The bad news is that the next step, The Crusher, only has 40 spots left. Register today, train tomorrow.

After the windchill and ice beards of this last weekend, The Crusher is a stroll in the woods. You’ve got 36 hours to complete the point-to-point course that starts in Copper Harbor and finishes at our basecamp of Forestville.

Pick up 5 checkpoints along the way and all you need is that little event in the fall called Marji Gesick to gain lifetime admission to The Hall of Pain and our annual “Secret Event.”

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.
