Back on Belle Isle, the site of Michigans "Best of the US" selection. Now only hosting the states Triathlon, Duathlon, Club and Team Championships, but of course OPEN TO EVERYONE!
Same great venue, same great course, slightly different setup but rest assured if you want to end the season with a lightning fast pr this is the place and race to achieve that. With the smell of autumn in the air most of the island has calmed down as the regular users enjoy a more serene setting this time of year. That is why we chose this venue as a "double" venue but we will make it one worth doing twice a year. Come downtown Detroit and enjoy a baseball or football game if they are home. A beautiful night at the theater, symphony or museum and stay at one of the 4 star casinos with great food options. So many great things to see and do with your significant other or family.
Michigan Tri/Du Championship will serve as the 2013 3 Disciplines Club / Team Championship as well.
The swim course has worked really well with Motor City in the past so that will be unchanged.
The bike is lightning fast, arguably one of the fastest courses in the country as you get the wind either on the Canada side of US side of the island which enable you to reach speeds over 30 mph. It is closed to traffic with coned lanes around the entire island. The difference will be you will enter after completing your laps on the corner of Picnic Way and Riverbank across from the old boat house.
The run course is flat as well and will loop the south end of the island before bringing you back to the finish line.
