(Virtual) Iron Range Roll 2020

Fri June 5 - Sun June 7 Ishpeming, MI 49849 US Directions
(Virtual) Iron Range Roll 2020

The 2020 Iron Range Roll is going VIRTUAL!  Because of the current situation surrounding COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the Iron Range Roll Planning Committee has made the difficult decision to cancel the physical Iron Range Roll, traditionally racing from the Cliffs Shaft Mine Museum in Ishpeming to the Marquette Commons.  In lieu of the traditional race, we will be providing a virtual race for our participants. 

What the heck is a virtual race?  Great Question!  

A virtual race gives our participants a target goal and motivation to get out for a bike ride on National Trails Day while doing our best to practice social distancing and health and safety measures set forth by Federal, State and Local regulations.  Racers have from Friday, June 5 at 12:00pm until Sunday June 7 at 6:00pm to complete a 16 mile bike, record their results using one of many running/biking apps, and submit their results to the IRR team.  More information on how to submit results will be provided after registration.    

We hope you will join us on the 7th Annual Iron Range Roll as we all make the best of the situation we are ALL in together!

The 2020 (Virutal) Iron Range Roll is a 16-mile fun (but timed) bicycle race traditionally ran from Ishpeming to Marquette along the Iron Ore Heritage Trail (IOHT).  Due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus), this year's race will be virtual.  Racers will track their ride using a run/bike tracking app and submit their results. This event celebrates the heritage and recreational culture of Marquette County – all in the name of giving back to our community’s youth through the YMCA of Marquette County’s Youth Programs.  

After months of planning and weeks of uncertainty, the IRR Planning Committee made the tough decision to cancel the RACE DAY festivities for the health and safety of our racers, volunteers and community at-large.  We are going to be holding the race virtually instead.  Riders will need to complete the 16 mile ride the weekend of June 5-7, track their ride using one of numerous apps available, and submit their results.  Racers will received a medal for their participation, a 2020 Virtual IRR T-Shirt and additional sponsors swag.  Swag will be delivered via mail or physically dropped off at the racers address the week following the race.  

Connect Marquette is honored to partner with our sponsors, the Iron Ore Heritage Trail, the Cities of Ishpeming, Negaunee, and Marquette, Townships of Negaunee and Marquette, and the YMCA of Marquette County to present an annual recreation event that celebrates the connection of our communities along the IOHT.

The “Iron Range Roll” aims to be an all-inclusive event that promotes healthy living, fun, and giving back with participants of all ages and abilities.
