The Husky Autumn Mountain Run 2022
October 22, 2022

The HAMR is a competitive running event consisting of a 5k and 10k course put on by Michigan Tech’s Department of Military Science .

The course scales Mont Ripley, in Hancock, Michigan, the beautiful heart of the Copper Country. It then traverses Quincy Mine giving runners a unique tour of Houghton’s rich mining history. The course is challenging, the competition is fierce, yet the environment remains fun and friendly.

This experience is truly unforgettable, as you enjoy the panoramic views of the famous UP fall colors, surrounded by friends, family, and competitors. Come out this year and take on the mountain together!

All proceeds will be used to support the development and training of Cadets in Michigan Technological University’s Department of Military Science.
