Thanks for joining us in the all new
42nd Annual North American VASA, presented by Short's Brewing Company
and Chemical Bank
By popular demand, we will continue with our “Freestyle Saturday” and “Classic Sunday" format. The fat bike races and Junior Vasa will also continue on Saturday. Returning is the SkiFatalon (after a one-year absence), the Collegiate Challenge, and a new test of your endurance, the Triple Threat!
Vasa Vice Versa
Our Vasa vice versa was so popular last year, we decided to do it again! The counter-clockwise direction will allow you to (again) see the other side of those Pere Marquette Forest trees. There will be a few tweaks to the courses, so watch for the revised maps on this website.
We are happy to have Short’s back as our co-title sponsor for the fourth year. Plenty of their great craft beers will be made available for your post-race ‘hoppiness’ in our toasty Event Tent at Timber Ridge. For more details check out the ‘What’s New’ section of our website.
Chemical Bank has become a major banking institution with ten local bank locations in the greater Traverse City area as well as their main branch at 625 South Garfield Avenue. They have been a Vasa sponsor since 2011 and will now share the Vasa Title Sponsorship role with Short’s Brewing. We are very pleased for all their support.
