Itascatur Outdoor Activity Club hosted the 41st annual Headwaters 100 on Saturday, Sept. 24. With the help of so many organizations and individuals, the event hosted nearly 300 riders from 13 states and Manitoba.

While the weather was iffy at times, it did not dampen the enthusiasm of the riders and volunteers supporting them.

As always, the riders were most appreciative of the food stops and other support provided them. So many times, riders tell us this is the best ride they do with the friendliest people they interact with. Well, it is Park Rapids, right?

Itascatur wants to thank staff at Essentia Health, and the Park Rapids Lions for supporting food stops, and McDonalds for providing coffee, now for over 20 years. Our food stop locations are always most accommodating: Itasca State Park, Mantrap Conservation Club and the Nevis Muskie Park. Thanks! Our food suppliers, Hugo’s and Main Street Meats, also deserve a shout out.

Of course, this event could not have been made safe and possible without our dedicated public servants at the Hubbard County Sheriff Office and the Park Rapids Police Department. Thanks so much for all you do for us every day!

And finally, a big thanks to the many Itascatur members and non-members who literally poured hundreds of hours into making this a special day for our community. You are deeply appreciated!! Thanks to everyone!!
