MI Adventure Race: Silver Lake (5 or 8 hours)
June 1 @ 11:30 am - 4:30 pm
Silver Lake provides the most amazing race course scenery in the Midwest if not beyond and is home every few years to the largest adventure race in the U.S.: the Michigan Adventure Race: Silver Lake Edition. Few places in the world offer Sahara Desert-like views to the north and south, an inland ocean to the west, and beautiful Silver Lake to the east. You’ll go from a treeless, other-worldly area with massive vistas to lush Michigan forest just minutes away.
Choose from 5- or 8-hour courses. 2- and 3-person teams. We will allow solos too if you can’t find a teammate. Both races will feature beginner to intermediate biking, orienteering (clinic and online instruction available), and trekking along with fun paddleboarding and sandboarding – like sledding on sand; sit or stand. You’ll spend time around beautiful Silver Lake and explore hilly backdunes and lush forests. Lake Michigan coast running too! Every checkpoint is optional. Find as many flags as you can! You’ll never forget this adventure.
