We host events for people. Men, women, children. ALL people. We feel everyone should be represented, and we want to create an atmosphere where everyone feels comfortable. To that end, we will keep categories uncapped for female participants – even when we’re sold out. You won’t see us make a big deal about it  and you probably haven’t read about it in a big bike mag (you actually have to pay for those), but we’ve been promoting equal representation since 2018 because it’s the right thing to do – not to please shareholders.

It’s not about how fast you finish. it’s about IF you finish, and every finish matters. We’ve witnessed thousands of people finish since 2015 at events such as Polar Roll, Marji Gesick, and the Crusher. Elites baffle us with their speed while every-day men and women inspire us with resilience and tenacity. Everyone deserves a person waiting for them at the finish line – so if you won’t quit, we won’t quit.

It’s not going to be easy. We create events to change you. Welcome to the family, CRUSHER.

It’s all about community.

906 Adventure Team is a 501c3 Non-Profit based in Marquette, Michigan. Since 2014 we have been creating outdoor adventure experiences for youth through Adventure Bike Club and events like Polar Roll, The Crusher, and Marji Gesick. Our take on life is pretty simple – it’s an adventure. In life (and adventure) stuff doesn’t always go to plan. Things go wrong. Bad things happen to good people and you don’t overcome it by complaining or pointing fingers. The truth is adversity brings out the best of us – by taking us down unknown paths to find it. 


906 Adventure Team uses revenue from the events to support trail organizations and create more youth Adventure Teams. 


The Marji Gesick will donate $27,000 to local trails this year, bringing total trail donations since 2015 to $216,000. 


In 2022, with the help of corporate partners, we invested $40,000 in youth programs for three new Adventure Team communities. Resilience, confidence, community, and a sense of belonging have never been more important than it is for kids today. Adventure Teams help them “find their people”, the way you feel like you’ve found yours at Marji. 


We want you to know when you support 906 Adventure Team and the events you’re making life better here in Marquette County and in communities across the Midwest.
