Registration for the 2018 Hastings/Yankee Springs Edition is expected to open in February 2018.

Canoes and kayaks are free of charge thanks to our Presenting Sponsor U-Rent-Em Canoes! Three-person teams will have a person sit in the middle on a provided cushion. You may bring your own if you prefer (no change in price). Shirt and buffet included as well! On a per-hour basis, and factoring in the lunch 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 register for yourself. BikeReg will email your teammates once you provide their email address. Your teammate(s) will complete their own registrations. We will no longer need or require paper waivers.

Register for your entire team under one registration.

  • Solo: females, males
  • Two-person: co-ed, females, males
  • Three- and four-person co-ed, females, males

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 $25 administration fee. When you are ready to register for your next race, we will provide you a discount 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.

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