TRI - BAVARIA
We listened to the athletes, they want the old 5k run course back, versus the 4.4 so you got it. Also a new bike course is coming.
The city of Frankenmuth and the Bavarian Inn welcomes the TRI BAVARIA Weekend. A jam packed weekend full of fun, fitness and a test of ones fitness level. A weekend with something for everyone starting with the little bavaria kids triathlon on Saturday morning. Followed with the adult races on Sunday. Frankenmuth Michigan is one of the top tourist destinations in the state as well as the overall region. There is no shortage of things to see and do for the entire family. The water parks, shopping, craft brewery, Bronners Christmas shop and plenty of restaurant choices along with the World famous Bavarian Inn Restaurant. The setting could not be more spectacular with a swim in the river followed by a flat bike through the farm lands and ending with a run through all the sites in and around Frankenmuth finishing up with a straight shot into the finish line where your finisher medal and Bavarian party awaits.
