Same great race, beautiful local venue @ Kensington Metropark. Locals know how beautiful Kensington Metropark is as it gets over 2 million visitors annually to enjoy nature, Kent lake, two great beach's, a paved trail around the lake, great picnic spots and nature education and hikes. So we thought being so close to the metro area yet offering so much along with a challenging bike course it would be the perfect new home for Powerman Michigan.
The top three athletes in each aged-up age group will qualify for the 2020 ITU Long-Distance Duathlon World Championship as well as the 2020 ITU World Short Course Championships in Viborg Denmark.

Classic - 10k run, 60k bike, 10k run

Super Sprint - 2.5k run, 15k bike, 2.5k run
**2 person relays offered for the Classic and Short Distance.
The top three athletes in each aged-up age group will qualify for the 2020 ITU Long-Distance Duathlon World Championship. The 2020 World Championship will occur in Zofingen, Switzerland. Qualified athletes will receive an email from USA Triathlon within two weeks after the Powerman Michigan event.
At Powerman Michigan, athletes will race in their appropriate age groups based on their age as of Dec. 31, 2019. Awards will be issued based on those results. If an athlete "ages up" into another age group in 2020, a separate set of results will be issued accounting for those athletes who aged up and Team USA slots will be awarded based on these results. So their finish time will be compared to those athletes in the older age group. For example, if John Doe is going to be 49 years old by Dec. 31, 2019, he will age-up up into the 50-54 age
TRI - ONE
Our exclusive TRI - One program was launched many years ago when athletes raced as part of their training, rewarded themselves for all the training they were doing and to gain all that important race day experience you cannot simulate. As the multi-sport community has evolved to the opposite now we are bringing back the program. it is really simple, you need more open water swim training? great, cmon out and get it with our lifeguards and courses. Want to get a nice hard time trial on the bike in? cmon out and race on our course. Need to get a run in and want to do so with aid stations? cmon out and join other runners.
Each TRI - One will have a designated start time, you will simply head to the TRI - One start flag for the discipline you choose, line up, and when the clock strikes and the horn sounds you are off. With our events, time trial swim starts now you will line up accordingly. Or if you want to take the Kayak or SUP out for a nice paddle with others where offered.
The cost for these is a flat $25. For that, you get a finisher's medal and access to the post-race food tent. You may purchase a shirt for $10.
You can register online or onsite. If onsite it is cash only!
