Plan to ski, run, bike or snowshoe on some of the greatest trails in America
For those so inclined, you can literally run, ski or bike some of the nation's finest races in Cable WI. We have small ski races like The Seeley Classic and The North End Classic and single track bike races like the early season Cable Classic, a 100-miler that is becoming the midwest standard in the Cheq 100, and The Chequamegon Fat-tire that attracts legends in the cycling world and one of the most beautiful trail runs in the country with the Birkie trail run. Cable also hosts the American Birkebeiner, the largest ski race in North America.
In all, we have some of the best locally run events you will find spring, summer, fall or winter. Come to town to participate or just to watch. When you do, stop by for the finest beer and pizza you have ever had.
