The beautiful Lake Huron port town of East Tawas hosts our Festival of Races. The jewel of the east side of Michigan’s coastal tourist destinations is perfect for one of the country’s best Half Iron distance events. Plenty of shopping and restaurants await you on Newman Street, which will be transformed into Triathlon Central as the Festival of Races takes over the street.

With the finish on the first block and transition area on the second, this is a perfect venue to keep friends, family and spectators busy with what all Downtown East Tawas has to offer. The swim venue is perfect, on the bay in crystal clear Lake Huron, with a swim along the shoreline.

Spectators enjoy the perfect vantage point on the pier, white sandy beach, and a huge park to host the pre and post race festivities with live band and catered post race meal.

The bike and run courses are second to none, taking you through the national forest, along the Au Sable River. The run course takes you out past the finish line, past some quaint shops and through the residential area to the turnaround point.

Then Downtown East Tawas and Newman Street host the best finish line in the state!

At the finish, a post race catered meal with awards and raffle with over $10,000.00 in prizes!

"Great way to wind down your season, fun clear cool swim, my favorite bike ride, smooth roads that challenge you all the way, with a nice run that has some great volunteers cheering you on!"
