Registration for the 2018 Caberfae/Epic Edition is now open!

No Change in Price from 2017
Entry fee includes tech shirt, canoe (1 per 3-person team, 2 per 4-person), paddle and life vest rental, $1,000+ of top finisher and raffle prizes, navigation clinic, and banquet with wedding-quality buffet ($20, at cost). We pay Caberfae for the buffet in exchange for use of their facilities (there are no other facilities like this in the area).

On a per-hour basis, and factoring in the buffet, canoe and shirt, the Michigan Adventure Race is one of the least expensive races of any kind in Michigan.

If you are serving or have served in the military, email us years and location of service for a discount code.

You will pay for the team and include your teammate(s) emails. BikeReg will email your teammates and they will complete their own registrations and waivers.

Click on the BikeReg logo to register. Make sure you click on the correct one – 8-hour or 20-hour. We recommend establishing a BikeReg account in case you need to make changes to your team.

All teams must use provided canoes due to complicated logistics of an overnight race. Three-person teams will use one canoe with the third person in the middle (on provided cushion or ideally, bring a seat).

You may swap in a teammate right up until the day before the race at NO CHARGE using the link provided in your email confirmation to the BikeReg registration system (you must contact us if you are transferring after registration closes).

If you cancel up until registration closes, you may defer your “base” race entry fee to next year’s race – or any of our eight races each year – minus a $35 fee per person. You will receive a credit code for the cancelled race’s base entry fee minus the admin fee. We do not provide credits for cancellations after registration closes (usually the two days leading up to the race).

Full refunds are available in the case of a death in the family or military duty.

Email Mark VanTongeren, race director, if you have questions.
