The Scene

Midland county parks Sanford park is the setting for this great charity event with proceeds going to the fallen and wounded soldier fund.  This is a Mid-Michigan Multi-Sport club team event and we are very proud to be the official event management 7 years developing this event with both the park and club.  We have evolved with the millions of dollars in park imrpovements that have transpired over the 7 year history.  The park is a short fifteen minutes from downtown Midland.  Any number of sites to see in and around the Midland area.  The swim in Sanford lake is a straight out and back rectangle course which is weed harvested the week of the race every year for your swimming pleasure.  The bike is an out and back on a very flat stretch followed by an equally flat run course through the residential area surrounding the park and finishing inside the park 40 feet from the transition area.  The club hosts a great post race snack tent and great raffle drawing as well.
