The Scene

We are very proud to be the official event management team for what is going to be a truly epic event.  Few events truly are epic but when you combine Michigan's Upper Peninsula, Lake Superior, the National Forest and the Pictured Rocks National Lake shore that can only be described as epic!  Munising Michigan will be the host to this incredible event, if you don't own a Kayak or SUP rent one!  No matter where you call home put this on the calendar, put it down as a goal and make the trek to this special place.  The folks in Munising are not going to disappoint as they welcome athletes of all ages and abilities to their community.  The best way to do that is to throw a party at the end of your epic journey.  

Due to the nature of the unpredictable Lake Superior the event will be scheduled for Saturday each year, in the event the kayak/SUP discipline needs to be canceled, Sunday will be used as the make up day.  So you can enjoy a pristine, star filled evening on Lake Superior in Munising.
