Traverse City Triathlon Has Been Cancelled!

New Date: 08/21/2022

It is with deep regret that we inform you the 2021 Traverse City Triathlon is cancelled.  We unfortunately did not obtain a necessary permit. After working through all options with the township, a special meeting to grant final approval was cancelled. Unfortunately, because of this, we are unable to host the event. In lieu of this, we are offering participants the choice to defer to the August 21, 2022 event or a full refund.  If you choose to defer, you will also receive one (1) free entry to any other Race Day Events' event through 2022.  We apologize for the inconvenience this has created, as we know you’ve been training hard and were looking forward to this event. We hope to make this up to you in 2022.

Dividing West and East Grand Traverse Bay, Old Mission Peninsula offers stunning scenery and a challenging landscape. The Olympic and sprint-distance races start in the calm, clean waters of Bowers Harbor on West Grand Traverse Bay for a looped swim. The bike courses point athletes past picturesque orchards and vineyards and over a few tough climbs. Heading out on the run, racers follow Neahtawanta Road along the water before turning up a dirt road into the Pyatt Nature Preserve. Athletes then return to the pavement for the final stretch to the finish line at Bowers Harbor Park. The Traverse City Triathlon delivers a beautiful course, professional race management, and great racing; this is Northern Michigan’s most memorable triathlon. See you at the start line!
