SWIM / KAYAK CANCELED = 4:30 a.m. Race Morning.
The original and best – another venue and event we have developed over a 15 year period becoming one of the most popular events for Michigan’s west side, attracting athletes from 21 states.
The event is right Downtown in the protected port with the coast guard just off to the left and a mile of white sandy beach to the right and the lighthouse directly in front. Ludington is known for its vast sand dunes further north just before the state park. Plenty of great shops and dining opportunities downtown and if you get lucky and book early enough there are three hotels directly across the street from the transition area and finish line.
You will swim along the break wall in crystal clear Lake Michigan, bike out to the state park and back, and run out to the city park and back with the first and last mile of the course closed to traffic and finish with a great party right on the water. This is why our original August event has become so popular with athletes all across the U.S.
