The Top O’ Michigan Marathon is the legendary annual stock outboard race, billed as “The World’s Toughest Outboard Marathon.” The course covers 87 miles through the inland waterways of northern Michigan, where drivers contend with stumps, hairpin turns and pleasure boat wakes. They also face off against each other. Over the course of two days, the horde of stock outboard runabouts will zip around nine make-or-break buoys; miss a buoy and you’re disqualified.
