The Lumberman event is going into its 6th year this year, and the 2nd year for the half ironman distance. Cadillac is an extremely athletic community with plenty of resources and amenities available for the event planners and the athletes. There are 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 takes you on a quick 3 mile jaunt to get outside of town and then smooth, lightly travelled, rolling country roads for an out and back ride. The run is something special: Half and Olympic distance athletes run a simple loop around the lake, which is 6.5 miles. Sprint athletes just zip down to the state park and return. And all of this is right downtown at the high school with showers and restrooms available.
Kayak and stand up paddle boarders come on out! A 2 mile Kayak awaits you with your choice of bike and run.
