What They Say About Sunrise Side

​What athletes are saying about Sunrise Side Triathlons:

“You guys are really the best triathlon folks in the state, and I wanted to say that emphatically even though I’m guessing you get your fair share of complaints. No other company “gets” the experience as well as y’all. Best wishes with the PowerMan series, and I’ll see y’all next summer! Cheers!”  -Todd S. 

“We did enjoy the event overall. We are hooked on triathlons and will participate in more soon!”  -jddsherrie

“I have done several 3D races, and as usual your staff is extremely friendly and happy. It is the opposite of a WTC event. Thank you again for hosting a great race, and please try to heat Lake Huron for next years event!” -Bob

“Thanks for making my first race an amazing overall experience. I had a blast and will definitely be back to this and other events!”  -Berlinb

“Other than the water being so cold…lol not in your control… I loved it! It was a well run race and I liked being body marked and having all my race things the night before. Our time was limited or we would have enjoyed all the shops and the dinner afterwards. Thanks to everyone for a job well done!!”  -Vstrong

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 $30.  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!
