Big Bay Relay takes place May 19

The Big Bay Relay sponsored by Johnsons Superior Shoes and Jimmy Johns is set to take off on Saturday, May 19th 2012. In its 36qth year the relay has been a tradition and a challenge. This year’s relay race (five person teams) will start at 8 a.m. and run from Marquette to Big Bay. In the past the race has brought in 50+ teams comprised of elite runners to a team of friends that just like to get out and have an adventure together. Divisions include: All female, all male and mixed team divisions, as well as a 7 person junior division.

The Noquemanon Trail Network is hosting this unique road running race and they are looking for volunteers as well as participants. This year the funds raised will go towards Noquemanon Ski Club and Animoosh Skijor Race promotion.

Johnsons Sports will be donating the top awards to each division winning team members in a form of gift certificates toward a purchase of new running shoes in their sport shop! Jimmy Johns, will be donating silver and bronze awards for each division. Thank you to both sponsors.
