With the big Noquemanon Ski Marathon only two weeks away, organizers are in search of volunteers to help make the event a success.
The event is scheduled for the weekend of January 24 through 26, and approximately 1,000 competitors are already registered.
Nearly 600 volunteers are needed for a weekend filled with events, and so far only a quarter of the numbers needed have signed up to help.
"What makes our race so successful here in Marquette? Number one is our course. The other thing that makes our races amazing is community support and the volunteers it takes to do this," said Nicole Dewald, race coordinator.
Anyone that wants to volunteer has to dedicate a minimum of two hours, according to Dewald. For information on how to help or if you're interested in signing up for the Noquemanon Ski Marathon, click here or call (906) 235-6861.
