The Ham Run takes place miles from the nearest town in a pristine wilderness where moose, wolves and deer roam. Eagles soar overhead and loons can be heard calling in the distance. Nature surrounds you with each step you take on this journey. Spring is in the air and in your step as new growth awakens in the forest and the woods come alive after a long winter's sleep.
There are very few places on the earth as beautiful as the Gunflint Trail and there is no other race course like it in the world. It is a special place that must be treated with respect and protected for future generations to enjoy. We tread lightly and in doing so we make as little impact as possible.
