Sleeping Bear M-22 Challenge Photos

Readers, I promised pictures from the M-22 challenge, and thanks to my Chief Ranger, here they are! I took all of these pictures on the day of the event.

Runners at the start of the race!

Vehicle escorts were run by the Rangers through the heavy crowds. When the event was not in the area, we reopened the roads to traffic.

Some of the boats waiting for their riders and others already in the water after the 17 mile bike!

The finish line!

Volunteers in the green received the boats as the participants got off to cross the finish line. These volunteers moved the boats onto shore where their owners could later pick them back up.

Pure joy at the finish line!
