EQUIPMENT DROP OFF
In order to maintain pedestrian safety at the event site and along M-109, the SLEEPING BEAR DUNES NATIONAL LAKESHORE and the LEELANAU COUNTY SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT is requiring that no vehicles are allowed to park along M-109 at anytime for any reason. Vehicles parked along M-109 will be ticketed.
During equipment drop-off, vehicles must pull into the designated drop-off area and unload their vehicle and move out to park at an off-site location as soon as possible. Also after the race, participants must use the designated pick-up area to load their equipment. Due to the small event site area, we ask that participants please be prepared to unload and load their equipment as quickly as they can. We will have volunteers available for assistance.
Please, please, please try and drop off your kayak/SUP and bike at the event site during the Friday staging time. We have hired a security guard to watch over all equipment for Friday night. The event site space is limited and there will be LOTS of traffic, so for your own peace of mind, we ask you drop your boat off on Friday. You can leave your bike overnight, or ride it from the parking lot to the event site in the morning.
