The only way to describe this course is FLAT. As many Michigan residents know the mid part of the state is nothing but flat, any hill you encounter would likely be a highway overpass. So this event is great for those looking for a fast, flat event.
The park and lake association does a great job the week leading up to the event hiring a private harvesting weed company for the race. By race morning each year athletes enjoy a clear path around the buoys on a rectangle course. So by all means do not judge this event by swimming before the race as the weeds are thick before hand.
The bike is an out and back as stated flat and if you get lucky and the wind is at your back coming home we have heard athletes say "wow" "that was cool, I didnt know I could ride that fast" of course you will have a head wind out.
The run course is cool as it winds through the nature trail before heading out the back of the park to an out and back course. Again very flat.
