The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

From Todd: I’ll share a quick story from back in the day. I was a 22 year-old truck driver running my butt off delivering groceries five days a week for SYSCO. In those days mail would come up from corporate and the sales team would have ta meet us (the drivers) to get their goods.. One salesman was a particular pain in da rear, telling ya one thing and doing another. So finally one day after wasting a bunch of my time I asked him, “What’s yer problem, bud. I got places to be too.” His response, “You should just be happy I get up every morning and sell groceries so you have a job.”
Moral of the story: The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Great events require great trails, great trails get showcased by great events, and all of it requires dedicated great people, doing a lot of different things. One without the other just isn’t the same. When we work together everyone in the community wins, and when I reference community I’m talking about much more than just trails and kids. I’m talking about local business, our economy, and more. I was born in da U.P., moved and came back a couple of times, finally came back for an extended stay. I remember a time not so long ago we’d talk about how all the young people would have ta move away to get a job, and might never come back, but that’s changing. This crazy ride we’re on in showing folks it’s a pretty good place, some of ya are moving here, or buying a second home. Young families are coming back and putting down roots.
A BIG thank you to the dedicated trail organizations in Marquette County. We can’t do this without you! A BIG thank you to 906AT volunteers. We can’t do it without you! Finally, a BIG thank you to everyone who signed up and joined us these past couple months. It’s been one heckuva good time and I’m happy to report y’all helped us raise $8,325 for the trails.

It’s all about community.

We asked you to #adapt in 2020, and you did. Now we’re asking you to join us and #forge ahead. 2021 is about doing what you do best, making the most of what you have, and getting better every day.

While a lot of races out there are run by for-profit companies, that’s not the case for Marji Gesick, Polar Roll and The Crusher. All of our events are productions of the 906 Adventure Team, a 501(c)3 whose mission is to empower people to become the best version of themselves through outdoor adventure. We don’t have a large staff of people (two, to be exact) or significant overhead, and that enables us to donate a significant portion of race revenues in two ways:

Since 2015, we’ve given back more than $141,000 to the trail-builders of RAMBA, NTN, Sisu Dirt Crews, WinMan and the DCNT. We also support youth adventure programs in three communities and have plans for that number to grow in the near future.

In 2021 we’re building a learning management system to train 150+ volunteer Adventure Leaders, and have our eyes on the future: planning to grow from 500 youth served to thousands. Together with your continued support and a network of dedicated partners, we will connect kids with each other, their communities, and give them a healthy alternative to time spent on devices.
