The Scene

The Lumberman event is going into its 7th year this year. Cadillac is an extremely athletic community with plenty of resources and amenities available for the event planners and the athletes. There are plenty of lodging and camping choices, a plethora of shopping choices for the entire family and restaurants with every choice of food and flavor available.

The course is just as perfect with a shallow Cadillac Lake swim or kayak/paddle; a bike course that takes you on a quick 3 mile jaunt to get outside of town and then smooth, lightly traveled, rolling country roads for an out and back ride. The run is something special:  Olympic Distance athletes run a simple loop around the lake, which is 6.5 miles. Sprint athletes just zip down to the state park and return. And all of this is right downtown at the high school with showers and restrooms available.  

Kayak and stand up paddle boarders come on out! A 2 mile kayak awaits you with your choice of bike and run.

Support Crews

Athletes Responsibility

Due to an increasing amount of athletes entering events they may not be properly trained for, we are asking each athlete to be responsible and honest with his/her ability to complete the distance registering for. Due to safety concerns for everyone involved including you the athlete, but also the support crew volunteers and officials like police, sheriff, fire department, etc. we must instill course cut off times at 4 hrs. for Olympic. Raffle and awards start at 4 hrs and 30 minutes in Olympic distance events and 99% of all athletes are finished by that time. So you must register for the event you will finish under that 4 hour time limit. Being a responsible athlete means if you cannot complete the Olympic distance comfortably under that time we recommend you participate in the sprint event. We encourage you to train for the goal to reach that Olympic distance under the 4 hour time limit. If you do not have a clear idea as to how to achieve that goal we are here to help, please let us know.

An athlete will be informed he/she has reached the 4 hr. cut off, at which time the athlete will acknowledge he/she understands completely and he/she will be brought in off the course by the course coordinator. If the athlete refuses this he/she will be informed that there will not be any support left on the course from that point and he/she must acknowledge this and understand he/she is continuing under those circumstances at which time the athlete will remove the timing chip/strap and give to the course coordinator.  

Again an athlete must take the responsibility on as an athlete understanding his/her ability at the time of the event. Knowing that support crew volunteers, as well as other personnel out on courses must be kept in safe conditions as well.
