THANK YOU to all of you who came out to support 2017 Book Across the Bay — as participants, spectators, volunteers, and sponsors. This event would not happen without all of you! This year’s trip across the bay was certainly memorable — our snow held out until late morning on race day, but ultimately could not stand up to the extremely warm weather. However, with our hearts full of Book Across the Bay spirit, and our boots full of water, we all made the best of it and had an enjoyable evening.

LOST AND FOUND? If you happened to lose something, or find something that isn’t yours, please send an email with a full description (and photo if it would help) of the item to  We will typically recover lost and found items for about a week after the race, and we will do our best to reunite items with owners.

T-SHIRTS Race tshirts were not included in the price of registration. However, early registrants had the opportunity to buy/reserve a race tshirt. If you were one of those people, and were not able to make it to the event, we can still get you your tshirt in one of two ways: (1) for those of you who live in the Chequamegon  Bay region, you can stop by Heart Graphics, 316 W. Main Street, Ashland (open 8-5 weekdays) to pick up your shirt, or (2) send $5 to cover shipping to Book Across the Bay, PO Box 307, Ashland WI 54806 and we will mail your shirt to you.
