Dear Race Participants

We are forced to cancel our event that was scheduled for Sunday, March 29th due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and subsequent direction from the Governor's office. 

We are kindly asking that your race fee gets transferred to a donation to our charity partner Michigan AgrAbility. 

Michigan AgrAbility provides services to farmers with disabilities, illnesses or aging conditions so they can continue the occupation and lifestyle they love.  We research and develop useful farming tools, equipment and methods that enable farmers to work longer and feel better.  Michigan AgrAbility, funded by a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) grant, is a joint partnership between Michigan State University Extension (MSU Extension) and Easter Seals Michigan. We work closely with Michigan Rehabilitation Services (State of Michigan Vocational Rehabilitation Agency) and network of private funding organizations to provide these services. Learn more at
