Big Bay Relay registration still open

The Big Bay Relay, sponsored by Johnson’s Superior Shoes and Jimmy Johns is set for Saturday, May 18th.  The 37th annual relay race of five-person teams will start at 8 a.m. and run from Marquette to Big Bay.

In the past, the race has brought in more than 50 teams that range from elite runners to a team of friends who just like to get out and have an adventure together.  Divisions include: all female, all male and mixed team divisions, as well as a seven-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, funds raised will go towards Noquemanon Skijor Club and Animoosh Skijor Race promotion.

Johnson’s 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 and  Jimmy Johns will be donating silver and bronze awards for each division.  Thank you to both sponsors.

Entry forms are available on the Noquemanon Trail Network’s website,
