1. Anyone is welcome to participate, but you must be an MCRA member to qualify for prizes.
2. Events can take place anywhere, as long as they meet the course requirements for completion. You can do this alone, with someone in your household, or in any socially distanced manner you prefer.
3. Submit your results with either a screenshot from Strava, Garmin Connect, or similar on the event page- it must have the date, a distance/time measurement, and a “course map.” If you do not use Strava or Garmin Connect, please send a message to the Michigan Canoe Racing Association and we will do our best to figure it out. This being said, using one of the tracking apps will make for the smoothest processing. If you don’t use Facebook, contact Rebecca, or Austin directly from the contact list on the MCRA website, and we will process your submission.

4. All submissions must be received by 7/14/2020 at 11:59 PM. Winners will be announced the following week.

Official letter from Curley Race

We truly had a hard time making this decision, but after much discussion the Curley Committee has decided to cancel the 2020 race. We are hoping to be able to provide some activities in town that weekend, but due to restrictions on Consumers property and other factors out of our control we decided the best option was to cancel the race. Stay tuned we will be updating you as soon as we have more information.

The Curley Committee.
