2023 Race Highlights

Course Details


The swim start and finish are located right next to the transition area on Betsie Bay. This one-loop swim course is entirely within protected Betsie Bay which should provide really nice conditions on race day.


The bike course will travel along Highway M-22 and surrounding roads in Benzie County. The bike course features two out-and-back sections, largely on M-22. There are a few hills out there, but much of the course is rolling or flat.


The 13.1-mile run is made up of two out-and-back loops that will take place on paved trails and roads around Betsie Bay, between the City of Frankfort and the Village of Elberta. The run course is pretty flat, and athletes will be able to see and feel the energy from the transition area and finish line even when they’re on the far side of Betsie Bay near Elberta, which should provide a cool experience on race day.


Traverse City's Cherry Capital Airport is a full-service commercial airport offering major airline service to over 300 domestic and international destinations.
