To celebrate Evart's historical roots in the logging industry, we invite you to participate in the Timber Beast Adventure Race. This is a great event for beginners, friends, families, and the experienced athlete.
The timber beast is a tough logger who belongs outdoors. He does not allow man, nor beast, nor nature to stand in his way. The timber beast must have a steady eye, a strong arm, and a clear brain to conquer the forest and battle the elements. Are you up to the challenge of running, biking and kayak/canoe through this dry triathlon? Register today to embody the savage spirit of the timber beast right here in the heart of Michigan
