Michigans largest inland lake sets the scene for the kayak portion of the event. We have all been to Houghton lake at one point in our lives whether a family vacation growing up or joining a friend along on his or her families vacation. Many have fond memories or still visit this beautiful Michigan resource. The Houghton Lake High School will serve as the transition area and venue for the rest of the event. Providing a great area for transition as well as a first class finish setting on the high school track with hundreds of friends and family members cheering you on as you enter the stadium for a final lap of the track into the finish line.
