The new race date is August 15, 2020. Registration is open. Currently registration is limited to the first 60 canoe rentals in the 7-hour race and 45 canoes in the 12-hour race (if you bring your own canoe, there is no cap for you). For the 12-hour race, bikes will go in canoes during the paddle section; not for the 6-7 hour race. We reserved the right to cancel a duration and refund teams if there’s not enough demand.

  • 4-Hour Race: no paddle section.
  • 7-Hour Canoe/Kayak Rental: One $40 boat needed for solo (kayak), 2- or 3-person teams; Two $40 canoes needed for 4-person team
  • 12 Hour Canoe Rental: One $40 canoe needed for solo or 2-person teams; Two $40 canoes needed for 3- or 4-person teams

On a per-hour basis, and factoring in swag, this is one of the least expensive races of any kind in Michigan ($8-12/hour of racing).

  • 1-4 person female, male and co-ed divisions
  • Comes with tech shirt (or pint or buff), free clinic, good chance at 100+ prizes. Pizza may or may not be provided (we would serve it to you).

Family rate:
Kids 17 and under are $20 off with paid adult entry. Use the Contact form to request a discount code. Racers generally must be at least 12 years old unless the parent discusses the possibility of an exception with race organizers. Racers under 18 must be accompanied by an adult and have a parent or guardian sign the waiver/consent form provided during online registration.

If you are serving or have served in the military, email us years, location of service and number of people on your team (affects how code is applied) for a 5% discount code.

You will register for yourself and pay for the team. BikeReg will email your teammates once you provide their email address. Your teammate(s) will complete their own registrations.

If your team cannot do the race, you may request a partial credit for a future race.

If some of your team cannot do the race but some can, contact us and we’ll adjust your team and provide partial credits to those who cannot race.

If you purchased race insurance (e.g., Allianz Registration Protection via RunReg), contact them to inquire about possible reimbursement.

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

Event Cancellation/Postponement Policy (see Postponement page for COVID policy)
Race organizers reserve the right to cancel (or postpone) the event in the case of extended severe weather or other emergency. We will do everything possible to get the event in, but refunds are not available if it is cancelled (or postponed) due to significant costs we must pay in advance of the race (e.g., insurance, permits, vendor deposits, advertising, graphic design, etc.) along with hundreds of hours of planning.

If possible, we will reschedule rather than cancel the race. If you cannot attend on the rescheduled date, we will provide a full credit minus a $10 administrative fee per person. This credit can be used for any Michigan Adventure Race (ArtPrize, Winter, Ludington, fall), Coast to Coast Gravel Grinder or Lord of the Springs with no expiration. 

In the event of a thunderstorm, we will postpone the race until conditions improve. Extended severe weather may result in cancellation of the event and the above terms would apply.

REGISTRATION CHANGES

We recommend establishing a BikeReg account for future races.
