We were the first to bring you multi-sport in Holly Recreation area, developing the park with the cooperation from the park staff to be a great venue for triathlon. Holly Recreation area provides a plethora of both rustic and modern camping sites as well as hiking, fishing and other family activities.
The course we have developed over 8 years now features a time trial swim start, straight out and back rectangle course. An entirely closed challenging bike course, rolling to hilly the entire route. It is a four mile straight to the back of the park, so you will complete 3 loops.
The run course is one of our top 3 favorite courses, cut specifically 4 years ago just for this event which will take you on a challenging trail run around the campground, some small ponds before you come out just past the modern campground entry point. Then it is one mile back down to the finish line.
Another great venue to bring the family for a nice picnic following the event.

This is a state park, all vehicles must have a Recreational Passport to enter the park. Michigan residents can purchase a passport at the Secretary of State when renewing vehicle tags or at the park office, the pass is good for an entire a year.
All non-residents can purchase a one day pass for $8.40 or an annual pass $33.40 at the park office. There is very limited parking that is a reason for the cap, so please plan to arrive early.
