Same great race, Locals know how beautiful Kensington Metropark is as it gets over 2 million visitors annually to enjoy nature, Kent lake, two great beach’s, a paved trail around the lake, great picnic spots and nature education and hikes.  So we thought being so close to the metro area yet offering so much along with a challenging bike course it would be the perfect new home for Powerman Michigan.  

Course Information:

Bike

Exiting the transition area at Martindale Beach you will head out into the park on a slightly rolling course.  The course is tree-lined most of the way, after making your way at the parks roundabout you will have a short section before “the climb” it is not earth-shattering but for those that do not practice hills or see hills it will get the heart pounding.  It is the county’s highest point.  After cresting the hill you will sweep down to a left turn and head back to Martindale beach.  It is a 9-mile loop course, so 1, 2 or 4 laps depending on what event you are in.  You will sweep down past transition and out for laps 2 and 3 or head out for the run.  
Aid station: Powerman Distance athletes only – you will hit this 4 times on the bike. Water, lemon-lime Gatorade Endurance Formula and energy gels will be available.

Bike Course Cut off time: 12:00pm

Run

The run course will be beautiful with Kent lake on one side the entire time.  You will use the paved trail that circles the lake.  This is slightly rolling on the out and back course.  You will simply head out to your turnaround point and head back.  You will have an opportunity to  see your competition on the way back.  
Wave starts will depend on start numbers but initially, it will start as follows:
Classic – 8:00 a.m., Short – 8:30 a.m., Sprint – 8:45 a.m.  
Aid stations: Located at every mile with water, lemon-lime Gatorade Endurance Formula,  bananas, and pickles.
The course will be clearly marked with flags and cones.

Run Course Cut off Time: 2:00pm
