General

The Scene

When you are on the beach at South Haven on South Beach looking out over beautiful, crystal clear Lake Michigan it is easy to think Miami.  Miles of white sandy beach, a great little downtown with great stores and restaurants to visit.  The course will not disappoint with both bike and run courses taking you along lake michigan and back.  Both courses are flat and fast.  You will have one short climb up out of the south beach area.  The focal point of the event is the great beach finish.  A series of stairs will take you down to the white sandy beach about 300m from the finish line.  The key to the last 300m is picking the right line and being light on your feet the last 300m through the chute to the finish.
