Come Ski With The Pack

Come “ski with the pack” in our 42K marathon & 24K half marathon presented by Title Sponsor St. Matthias Thrift Shop.

A major mission service effort of the church, the St. Matthias’ Thrift Shop provides high-quality goods at affordable prices, which helps those in need and the whole community. We are staffed entirely by volunteers from throughout the community. 

The Thrift Shop is located at 439 Front Street in Minocqua, 715-358-2182. The Furniture Annex, which houses low-cost used furniture, is located on Milwaukee Street across from the Fire Station. Donations are accepted from 11:30-2:30 whenever our doors are open.  Ninety percent of the profits from sales go back to the community and surrounding areas in the form of monetary donations.

The 42K course is a single loop that incorporates all of the best and most challenging trails at MWP. The 24K is much tamer and does not include any of the “expert” trails that the 42K includes.

This is a chip-timed race with seeded wave starts and awards for top overall and division finishers. The 42 km marathon is a qualifier for the American Birkebeiner, and the 24 km half-marathon is a qualifier for the Kortelopet.

Stay refreshed and safe with six on-course aid stations and Ski Patrol coverage. Waxing equipment and supplies will be available on both courses (waxing benches, irons, heat guns, kick wax, tools, and solvents). Spare poles will also be available.
