Start Date

Activities: Triathlon 19 Miles

The MISH Experience is Extreme! Racers will begin the race on a kayak with a 3 mile open water PADDLE. Starting at the Terrace Bay hotel, the route will follow the Little Bay de Noc shoreline on Lake Michigan to the Gladstone Beach. Upon arrival at the beach, racers will transition to their bikes staged in Van Cleve Park. The BIKE portion of the race will take riders through the City of Gladstone and up to Rapid River along Bay Shore Drive. Returning back to Van Cleve Park, racers will dismount from their bikes and finish the last stretch of the race on foot. A 5K RUN will follow the Lake Michigan shoreline along the brand new waterfront non-motorized trail, finishing at the Terrace Bay Hotel.

Rather Swim than Paddle?

Get the full Lake Michigan experience with a 600M swim in Lake Michigan, 13.5 mile bike finished with a 5K run. The route starts in the protected waters of Little Bay de Noc on the North end of Lake Michigan starting from the Gladstone Beach in Van Cleve Park. The bike and run portions of this race feature scenic waterfront views along a very flat course.
