Description:

The original and best, another venue and event we have developed over a 10 year period becoming one of the west side of Michigan’s most popular events attracting athletes from 21 states as well ESPN, the Jeff Probst Show and Good Morning America all filming the incredible Team Maddy.  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.

Course Info: If you want to go fast at the end of the year before the longer events like the Tawas half or the championships this is the place to do that for sure. Athletes have reported PR’s every year here for some reason. Another course that lends itself for all the toys, slight breeze off the lake on the bike can hit a deep dish wheel or disc just right and you are spinning away at 35mph. with not a bleep in your heart rate. The swim is in the protected waters of the marina, crystal clear water you can see to the bottom along the break wall. On the beach start and a rectangle course is a fast swim. The bike is great with very little traffic and the police close Lakeshore drive down for about two miles heading out and back from the transition area. It is a mostly flat course with a few rollers along Lake Michigan and Hamlin lake. The run course heads straight down Lakeshore as well before jumping into and around the campground. Flat as a pancake, and mostly tree lined right downtown.
