Entering its 12th year, and 10th at Interlochen State Park. Located across the street from the world reknowned Interlochen Music Camp. 15 minutes from downtown Traverse City this event is situated on the calendar this year at the end of the International Cherry Festival and of course the weekend of July 4th. With a great campground this event has a huge following of athletes that bring the entire family up to camp at the state park for the event. With the run course cutting right through the campground out and back dozens of campers will be cheering you on at the start and end of your run discipline. The swim is in crystal clear Duck Lake which the park is on. The bike course is the flattest part of the entire Grand Traverse County that has its only climb about mile 4 on the course. Lightly travelled smooth roads make this just a perfect vacation destination event with something for the entire family.
