Today is the big day for Consumer's energy's Ausable River Canoe Marathon. Over the past 3 days the teams did their prologue sprints for starting positions and last night they impounded their boats. In just a couple of hours the cannon will go off right at 9pm and its 120 miles through the night until they reach Oscoda.


This year we have 2 of our writers participating in one of the biggest and best run races of the year. We want to wish both Ben Schlimmer in the #98 boat and Bill Mahaffy in the #50 boat the best of luck along with the other 182 competitors tonight.

Below you will find a link to the current results that will be updated periodically through the night that currently has the sprint results. Ben has landed a spot in the 2nd row with the 7th fastest sprint time and Bill is starting in the 11th row starting in the 52nd spot.
