More Info

I attribute my performance to great preparation, a little bit of luck and a whole lot of suffering. – Rebecca Rusch

Additional rules to be added. Consult this page again before the race for a full listing of rules.

Support Crews

  • Support crews may support up to three riders.
  • Support vehicles must stay off of the race course. You may not follow along your biker or meet them at any point during the race except at the three designated checkpoints. You must take other roads to reach each checkpoint and the finish line.
  • On-the-road support by a rider’s crew is encouraged to address medical/safety concerns but would result in a disqualification from the official standings. Support is allowed at assigned checkpoints only.
  • You may access “neutral area” support such as convenience stores, gas stations, public water access and racer or resident help, but only if not pre-planned. There is reasonable cell phone coverage along almost the entire route to communicate between racer and support crew. There are gaps in the Manistee National Forest. Ask other riders if they can call your crew if needed or move to another location for coverage.

All riders must carry the printed cue sheet. All riders using a navigation device such as a Garmin should carry a back-up battery (don’t forget cord).

Verification that Course was Followed

  • You must capture your route on gpx via Strava, Garmin or similar device and provide it to race officials if required.
  • Racers should hold each other accountable for following the course. If a racer reappears ahead of others, they should be informed of their mistake.
  • Racers going off course must determine where they left the course and must return to that point or they will be disqualified.

Roads will not be closed for the race. You are responsible for obeying the Michigan Vehicle Code as it applies to bicycles.

Music via headphones/earbuds is not allowed.
