...the challenge," said Ryan Matthews, AuSable River Canoe Marathon CommitteeCommittee member, former Marathon competitor, and race statistician. "People keep coming back as competitors for a number of reasons. The paddlers get treated like celebrities during race week. The race is well organized and the communities are very welcoming and accommodating. Records are well kept and there are individual accomplishments to shoot for, such as earning the Iron Paddler Award. The driven urge to do better than you did the previous race. The thrill and anxiousness of paddling at night. And there is something mystical and unique about the AuSable River and the Marathon that gets in your blood. It's an ultra-endurance adventure race and there is no other race like it."
"I would be surprised if we didn't get some very viable proposals" Compo said
