Book Across the Bay


The ice and snow have arrived! Mark your calendars for Saturday, February 14, 2015 when we celebrate the 19th edition of Book Across the Bay, one of the coolest ski and snowshoe events around.


t-shirt Congratulations to Karly Kruzan, whose artwork will be featured on this year’s race tshirt. Karly, age 11, is a student at Mellen School.



For Book Across the Bay veterans, there are a few changes to our usual routine this year:

  1. There will be no walk-in registration on Friday night, Feb. 13. All walk-in registration and bib pickup will be held on Saturday, Feb. 14 starting at 9:30 a.m. at the registration tent near the start area.
  2. We have a new start area! The starting area this year will be located at Maslowski Park, on Highway 2 at the far west end of Ashland. We were forced to move because of an E.P.A. Superfund cleanup operation at and around our usual start area.
  3. Daytime activities on Saturday, Feb. 14 include the free BOOK IT Kids Fun Race, and new this year, the BOOK IT Sprints. Both of these events are sponsored by Ashland’s own Solstice Outdoors. Click here for more information.
