Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The annual running of the UP 200, Midnight Run and Jackpine 30 sled dog races is fast approaching, and some key changes are in the works.

That was the message from Pat Torreano the President of the Upper Peninsula Sled Dog Association today on The SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike.

She talked about date adjustments that had been made, changes to the race routes and the relocating of the race headquarters from the Holiday Inn to the YMCA of Marquette County.

Pat also explained that the starting ceremonies for the UP 200 will be held in downtown Marquette as usual, but they will also have the start of the Midnight Run race there just like last year.

Activities get underway just after 6:00 p.m. on Friday, February 14, 2014.

The two race starts will be separated by about a half-hour and will add to the excitement of Sled Dog night in Marquette.
