The entry Fee is $20 per racer. All entrees score Team Points.

After the Relays, stick around for the awards ceremony on the sun deck, and feast on house-pulled BBQ pork sandwiches, black bean veggie burgers, vanishing scalloped potatoes, and of course our famous home-baked cookies.

This post-race meal is included in the race registration fee. Each racer will also receive an official 2017 Michigan Cup Relays Pint Glass!
