This event continues to be one of Michigan’s most beautiful venues and courses. We have been in the beautiful city of Petoskey for close to ten years now. Petoskey is another one of Michigan’s top tourist destinations, with absolutely everything you could possibly want to do on a family vacation right at your fingertips.
The event is right downtown, with the swim in a marina that is protected by a seawall. The transition area is on the closed Bay Street, overlooking the marina and the scenic bay. An incredible bike course takes you through the streets of Petoskey and past the high school before you head out on rolling country roads through rural Petoskey, then a “rest your legs” one mile descent back down to Bay St.
Then to top it off, a run that is second to none, where you start off passing the marina, following the bayside paved trail out and back, then up past the finish line to the Bear River Park paved trail, finishing with a super-fast 1 mile downhill to the finish located right across the street from the marina, city building, fire department and next to the Bear River. Just Awesome!
This year we add the kayak and stand up paddle board division for those who don’t want to swim. There’s something for everyone.
