Event Venue Information
The state’s Triathlon, Duathlon, Club, and Team Championships...
but of course this event is
OPEN TO EVERYONE!
Back to our original site at the Belle Isle Casino, where it all started almost 10 years ago. Rest assured if you want to end the season with a lightning fast PR, this is the place and race to achieve that. Test yourself against your time from the Motor City Triathlon and see if you improved your performance over the racing season.
With the smell of autumn in the air, most regular users of the island enjoy a more serene setting as the island starts to calm down from the hectic summer. That’s why we chose this venue as a "double" venue, once in early summer and once in late summer; and we will make it one worth doing twice. Come to downtown Detroit and enjoy a baseball or football game, a beautiful night at the theater, symphony, or museum and stay at one of the 4-star casino’s with great food options. So many great things to see and do with your significant other or family

Due to an increasing amount of athletes entering events they may not be properly trained for, we are first asking each athlete to be responsible and honest. Due to safety concerns for everyone involved including you the athlete, but also the support crew volunteers and officials like police, sheriff, fire department, etc. we must instill course cut off times at 4 hrs. Raffle and awards start at 3 hrs and 30 minutes in Olympic distance events and 99% of all athletes are finished by that time. So you must register for the event you will finish under that 4 hour time limit. Being a responsible athlete means if you cannot complete the Olympic distance comfortably under that time we recommend you participate in the sprint event.
An athlete will be informed he/she has reached the 4 hr. cut off, at which time the athlete will acknowledge he/she understands completely and he/she will be brought in off the course by the course coordinator. If the athlete refuses this he/she will be informed that there will not be any support left on the course from that point and he/she must acknowledge this and understand he/she is continuing under those circumstances at which time the athlete will remove the timing chip/strap and give to the course coordinator.
Again an athlete must take the responsibility on as an athlete understanding his / her ability at the time of the event. Knowing that support crew volunteers, as well as other personnel out on courses must be kept in safe conditions as well.
