The Lumberman event is going into it’s 6th year, with it being the 2nd year for the half ironman distance for this event. Cadillac is an extremely athletic community with plenty of resources and amenities which an event and its’ athletes like this require. Plenty of lodging and camping choices, a plethora of shopping choices for the entire family, and restaurants with every choice of food and flavor available.
The course is just as perfect with a shallow Cadillac lake swim or kayak/paddle. A bike course that will take you on a quick 3 mile jaunt to get outside of town and then smooth lightly travelled rolling country roads await for an out and back ride. Then the run is special: for the Half and Olympic distance athletes, it is a simple loop around the lake, which is 6.5 miles. Sprint athletes will just zip down to the state park and return. All of this right downtown, in the city park right across the street from the high school. Kayak and stand up paddle boarders come on out, a 4 miler awaits with your choice of bike and run.
Ryan Rau Michigan’s Top Professional Triathlete with a 70.3 PR of 4:00 hrs. will be doing a Triathlon clinic on Saturday from 1:00 - 3:00 free to all registered athletes. Following the clinic there will be a light lunch with a question and answer session with Ryan. Then following that you can pick up your race packets.
Coach Tony and Rebecca from Tri Again Fitness will also be conduction at Transition 101 clinic from 12:00 - 1:00, going over the most neglected piece of multi-sport. You will soon be saving seconds in your first event. They will be available during the question and answer session as well.
