Ready, Set, Go! Join in the festivities of the UP200, an Iditarod qualifier dog sled race! Pick up a TNC cowbell to cheer on the mushers and warm up with a cup of cocoa at our warm-up tent on the corner of S Front Street and E Washington. We’re a proud sponsor of the race, which celebrates the stunning beauty of northern Michigan and includes a trek through TNC’s Laughing Whitefish Lake Preserve.
