The morning starts with kid’s short children’s “sprint” races (by age), then a youth Mile Run followed by the pack of runners (and walkers). Music, food, prizes and a good work-out! This is a fund-raiser by the Sugarbush Trail Association for maintenance and upkeep of the xc-ski and singletrack trails.

Sail on the Hjørdis
Sail on the Hjørdis

North House Folk School | Grand Marais MN

The flagship of the Grand Marais Harbor, Hjørdis shares the name of the mythical Norse goddess of war. Take a trip on this 50’ traditionally-rigged steel schooner and gain access to both the largest lake in the world and experience Grand Marais as it was approached in the centuries before Highway 61 — from the water.

The 2019 sailing season has begun! Even better than watching her from the shore is spending time aboard out on the water

Try the 2-Hour Daily Sail, or Friday and Saturday Sunset Sail!
