Belle Isle Beach
Detroit, Michigan
Click to go to the web site for the Motor City Triathlon in Detroit, Michigan

This is the cityís greatest asset. Located a mile north of downtown on the river with Windsor on one side and Detroitís cityscape on the other. Belle Isle is rich in history and a place the race director visited with his family many times growing up.

Several venues around the country are spectacular venues, several are beautiful venues, several are great downtown venues, but few are perfect triathlon venues. This is one of the few and among one of the countries fastest courses. Just look at the times to prove it. If you want a PR, this is the place.

This is why the Motor City event has been chosen as Michiganís "Best of the U.S." event. Top 3 male and female athletes will represent the state of Michigan in the "Best of the US" Championship. Bring the kids and enjoy the park, catch a baseball game, get some great food, grab a great room at one of the first class hotels, and stay the night for the big race on Sunday.

How to Avoid The Porta Potty During a Race

Still using GU, PowerGel or Clif SHOT?
