Junior Classic 3 & 5 Mile Races

This year's Junior Classic will offer your choice of either a one lap or two lap race. The rollout down the heritage trail is about 1/2 mile before jumping onto Jackie's Favorite trail and back around to the finish. You can decide when you get there if you would like to have your child do the two laps or just one.

The one lap is 2.8 miles and the two lap is 5.1 miles. This is a fun roll course with about half of it being single track. The single track is wide and easy with one quick steeper climb that is only 12 feet long but may challenge your child depending on skill level forcing them to push up the hill. Other than that, it is a great ride! Join us on Tuesday nights with our YMBDP of Ishpeming and Negaunee in June to pre-ride!
