The 8th Annual Iron Range Roll is in the books!
We appreciate everyone that came out to race, volunteer and support our event. We are already looking forward to the 9th Annual event on June 4th, 2022. See you then!
The 8th annual Iron Range Roll is scheduled for Saturday, June 5, 2021. We are looking forward to racing along the historic Iron Ore Heritage Trail for the upcoming 2021 Iron RangeRoll. The 2020 Iron Range Roll was a virtual ride but 2021 will see more available options to racers than ever before as we adapt to the ever changing pandemic guidelines and recommendation. We hope to hold the race as a physical event with a virtual option for those unable to travel or wishing to take extra precautions. We will be making changes to how the race is conducted but our goal, as it always has been, is to provide a family friendly bike race that is safe for everyone and abides by Federal, State and Local regulations. Thank you to everyone who stuck with us through 2020 and we promise to do our best to build on that success for the 2021 Iron Range Roll.
An awards ceremony will follow at the conclusion of the race. This year's awards ceremony will be held at the YMCA of Marquette instead of the Ore Dock Brewing Co. as has been the venue in previous years. Another change to this year's awards ceremony is there will be no meal provided to our racers. Due in large part to the pandemic and current Federal, State, and Local regulations in place, the Connect Marquette Board of Directors, in conjunction with the YMCA of Marquette County felt it was prudent for this year's ceremony be brief and discourage gathering in a large group for longer than reasonably necessary. But we also want to make sure all of our top finishers are recognized for their efforts. We hope to bring back all aspects of the race day events for next year's race. We appreciate your support and understanding.
Proceeds benefit the YMCA of Marquette County's Youth Programs.
