Junior Noque

Check back here regularly for more details as they become available

The race committee is excited to announce that a generous supporter has been working with our organization for several months with the goal of supporting the event as well as youth skiing at the Noquemanon Ski Marathon.

Moving forward there will be NO COST for Junior Noque skiers to participate as registration fees, and some primary operational expenses, will be covered annually through this generous gift in memory of Cheri Rundman. Cheri, who skied the Noque for several years under the last name of Uelmen, was an elite level skier from Ishpeming who often placed in the top 5 or 10 places. Cheri spent a lot of time skiing at Al Quaal which is now the location of the Junior Noque.

To further commemorate Cheri’s legacy, the Junior Noque will officially be known as the Rundman Jacobson Junior Noquemanon!

Pre-registration, with no fee, is still strongly recommended for all Junior skiers. Those already registered will be contacted regarding a registration fee refund if they choose.

The 2023 Rundman Jacobson Junior Noquemanon will be held at Al Quaal Recreation area in Ishpeming and share the same start area as the 50K ski marathon!
