About This Activity

Participate in Marquette’s spring tradition!

The Big Bay Relay is set to take off on Saturday, May 21, 2016.  In its 40th year the relay has been a tradition and a challenge.  Race will start at 8:00 a.m. at Kaufman Sports Complex in Marquette and run up County Road 550 to the Thunder Bay Inn.

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 five person teams: All female, all male and mixed team divisions, as well as a 7 person junior division.

The races biggest concern is safety.  We are asking all automobile drivers who travel on 550 to be advised that runners will be occupying the left  and support vehicles will be occupying the right side of the Co Rd 550 from 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.  Support vehicles are asked to use their emergency flashers at each mile exchange marker.  Racers will be wearing a reflective strap.

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 Skijor Club.

Johnson’s Superior Shoes 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.

So rally your friends, encourage your co-workers and sign up for the Big Bay Relay today!  Entry forms and online registration is available on the Noquemanon Trail Network’s website.
