When you are on the beach in South Haven on South Beach looking out over beautiful, crystal clear Lake Michigan, it is easy to think Miami. South Haven is miles of white sandy beach with a great little downtown featuring unique stores and restaurants to visit. And of course, there’s the venue. This course will not disappoint, with both bike and run courses taking you along Lake Michigan and back. Both courses are flat and fast. You will have one short climb up out of the South Beach area.

Due to an increasing amount of athletes entering events they may not be properly trained for, we are first asking each athlete to be responsible and honest. 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. Raffle and awards start at 3 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.
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.
