Packet Pick Up

Pick up your packet on Friday before the race at the Grand Traverse Resort. Packet pick-up is held from 11 am - 9 pm. While picking up your packet, enjoy a Bell's Beer and shop at a selection of vendors for all of your trail needs at the Ice Cycle Expo presented by 4Front Credit Union. Pre-ordered merchandise and limited edition Iceman Cometh Challenge merchandise will also be available.

Important Packet Pick Up Notes:

Each racer must pick up her or his own packet. Bring your government issued ID. This is required in order to pick up your packet. You may not pick up another racer's packet (unless they are under the age of 18 and you are their legal guardian).

Can't make it to Packet Pick Up and Ice Cycle Expo on Friday? Your packet will be waiting for you at the start line in Kalkaska beginning at 7:30 am.

Banishment for Life

Giving your race number to a friend or racing under someone else’s name will result in both parties being excluded from future Iceman events. Racing under an assumed identity completely invalidates the results and is dangerous in the event of an emergency. Imagine breaking a collar bone (yes, it does happen) and our search and rescue team thinks you’re Bob Jones, 28, from Ionia, when in reality you are Bob Smith, 42, from Kalamazoo!

In February 2012 during the Birkebeiner Nordic Ski Race, the winner of the Birkie Classic had not registered for the event. This resulted in the wrong person being presented as the winner on the podium and deprived the legitimate first, second, and third place finishers the recognition they deserved — Do NOT be that person!
