The MISH Experience is Extreme! 

Racers will begin the race on a kayak or paddleboard with a 3 mile open water PADDLE. Starting at the Terrace Bay hotel, the route will follow the protected 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 13.5 miles 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. Races will start at 8am.
