The Scene

Michigan’s top tourist destination now hosts one of the region’s best triathlons.  If you have not been to Frankenmuth lately, it is time to come visit. We are once again proud to be the official event management company for the Coleman Brothers Tri For Life event, The Experience at Frankenmuth!  

The experience will be just that, not just another great event in another tourist destination, but one the Tri For Life folks will make an experience from the time you arrive downtown. Everything will be staged downtown to showcase what makes Frankenmuth the true gem that it is in Michigan. Something for the entire family awaits, along with an Experience Race brought to you by Tri For Life charity & the Coleman family.
