Step away from the pumpkin pie

Most of us look at Thanksgiving as the first major meal of Fat Pants Season. Those of you who look at it as a day to fuel up on lean protein and complex carbs, well … we salute you.

And we’d like to let you and your bulging muscles know that the Ironman 70.3 Michigan race in Frankfort is not only on for 2022 but also, you can register now. Slated for Saturday, Sept. 11, the event will include three legs: 1.2 miles of open-water swimming, 56 miles of cycling, and 13.1 miles of running. Total distance: 70.3 Lake Michigan miles.

Race organizers have taken public comment about the inaugural 2021 race and, though they report that feedback from both last year’s athletes and the community has been outstanding, they’re vowing to make the 2022 race even better. Ready to start training? Register here now.
