The Mackinaw Multi-Sport Mix is in downtown Mackinaw City at Wawatam Park, steps from dozens of all the stores, shops and hotels. Why an international distance? So you can finish and still enjoy the rest of your day in beautiful and historic Mackinaw City or jet over to Mackinac Island for the rest of the day. After swimming in the shadows of the Mighty Mac bridge, you will enjoy a great ride out to Wilderness State Park, which takes you along both lakes and a nice little climb, as well. Then the run will take you under the bridge, past Historic Fort Michilimackinac to a turnaround down a tiny street on Lake Huron before coming back downtown past the lighthouse for a great finish in downtown Mackinaw City, MI.
