The race will take place at the YMCA’s Camp Manitou-Lin in the aptly named Middleville, MI. Situated halfway between Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo, it’s a convenient venue for just about all of West Michigan so you have no excuse not to come out! It will feature both Sprint(ish) and Olympic(ish) distance triathlons along with duathlons and aquabikes for those of you who might not want to swim or run.
Your day will start on the shores of Lake Barlow with a one or two-loop swim. Transition is a short run away before heading out onto the beautiful gravel roads of Barry County, home of the Barry-Roubaix, one of the world’s preeminent gravel bike races. The sprint course will feature an out and back on Bowens Mill Road while the Olympic course will work its way south and east, exploring some of the best gravel roads Michigan has to offer. Once you’re back at camp, a quick change of your shoes and you’ll be off onto the trails of Camp Manitou-Lin for either a 5k or 10k.
