Throwback Thursday - From 1947 or 1948, the first or second AuSable Canoe Marathon: "Assembly Point", the starting point of The Marathon. In the early years, and for many years, the teams were individually started with a timed release.
The thrilling LeMan's-style running start that has become such an important and popular focus of The Marathon was not introduced until later years.
The 2018 AuSable River Canoe Marathon, Presented by Consumers Energy is upcoming July 28-29, 2018. Since 1947, One of the Greatest Canoe Races on Earth!
