With a heavy heart, the popular, long standing Half distance event on one of the countries best half bike courses has been deleted. With athletes choosing to support a billion dollar corporation owned by the chinese versus a Michigan based small business we had to make this unfortunate decision. Kenny's father designed this course years ago before he passed so it is a sad decision for him.

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. 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!
