2014 Caseville Beatles on the Bay Triathlon & Duathlon:
Tri To Finish is excited to once again host the premier multisport event in Michigan's thumb area. Athletes will have the opportunity to see more of the untapped thumb region.
The swim will take place in the beautiful water of Lake Huron. The bike course will trace the waterline out and back; smooth and flat conditions should create an incredible fast bike split. The run course takes athletes toward the central part of the thumb and is relatively flat, with distinct alterations to last years course removing loose sand portions and replacing them with backroads that are paved or packed gravel. Once again athletes will complete an out and back course finishing on the prestine beaches of Caseville County Park.
Caseville boasts numerous summer festivals and we are fortunate to capstone the Beach Boys Music Festival with a Sunday morning triathlon. Come enjoy the Beach Boys tribute band in the band shell at the park, near packet pickup. Put this one on your destination race list as it is not one you will want to miss. Tri To Finish is committed to making this a memorable event for the participants and spectators alike. Every finisher from first to last will enjoy an exciting finish line.
