Book Across the Bay is excited to announce that we have formally partnered with the City of Ashland to present the Event Tent & festivities surrounding the race! Ashland City will host the Book-End Celebration, Winter Market, Kite-Fest & more. Join us in celebrating the weekend on Friday evening for a kick-off celebration and of course, the post race chili feed!
Book Across the Bay is entirely volunteer-driven. Race proceeds are distributed back to the Chequamegon Bay community through our Work Groups that help make Book happen each year. Generous businesses in the community also sponsor the event by donating services, goods, and financial resources. We acknowledge all our business sponsors on this page, and with acknowledgement at the race itself.
Over the course of our 26 years BATB has given over 250,000.00 in grants, work-group payments, and donations to local not-for-profit clubs, teams, and organizations. Additionally, the charitable proceeds from the event have invested tens of thousands of dollars in local grooming equipment to help support winter trail grooming at several area ski venues!
