Next week the canoe world descends on Northern Michigan for the 66th AuSable River Canoe Marathon.This is not any canoe race . Over 50 thousand dollars in prize money in on the line for the race which culminates with the marathon on July 27th.

Jerry Coyne, who owns WGRY-FM,one of the sponsors of the marathon said this race is grueling,”the participants run into the river at 9:00 PM on Saturday night and the winner will probably finish around 11 Sunday morning.” Coyne estimates that over “50 thousand spectators will be watching at least parts of the race and the partying will be plentiful”
