About This Activity

Tri To Finish is excited to be back in Caseville to once again host the premier multisport event in Michigan's thumb area. Athletes will have the opportunity to see more of the untapped thumb region. The swim will take place in the beautiful water of Lake Huron. The bike course will trace the waterline out and back; smooth and flat conditions should create an incredibly fast bike split. The run course takes athletes toward the central part of the thumb and is relatively flat and on back roads that are paved or packed gravel (no sand again this year!).

Once again athletes will complete an out and back course finishing on the pristine beaches of Caseville County Park. Caseville boasts numerous summer festivals and we are fortunate to capstone this year’s Motown Summer Concert with a Sunday morning triathlon. Come enjoy the Motown band in the band shell at Wooded Island Banquet & Event Center (just down the road from the park) on Saturday night. We are once again partnering with Thumb Brewery in Caseville proper and will be hanging just outside the restaurant/bar Saturday for packet pickup and late registration.  Put this one on your destination race list as it is not one you will want to miss.

Course Description

Caseville, located directly off Lake Huron, is the perfect host town for a multisport event. Nestled amongst Caseville’s summer festivities, Movin and Groovin  Triathlon/Duathlon is a fast and beautiful race. The swim will take place in the crystal clear waters of Lake Huron with athletes completing a rectangular swim (athletes will follow pre-determine buoys based on distance). The bike course is an out and back on newly paved roads along Lake Huron. You'll enjoy picturesque views the entire way. Half Iron Distance and Olympic athletes will bike 20km to the turnaround with Half Iron Athletes going back out on the course for a second lap. Sprint and Duathlon athletes will bike 10km to their turnaround. The run traverses a road parallel to the bike course. Half Iron Distance athletes will run 10.5km to your turnaround.  Olympic athletes will run 5km to their turnaround. Sprint and Duathlon athletes will run 2.5km to their turnaround.

Directions to Event

For those of you outside the thumb, make your way to Bay City and hop on M-25 East.  Follow it around the west side of the thumb until you get to Caseville.  Caseville County Park will be on the left if you're coming from the South.  Alternatively, you could take M-24 north until it meets up with M-25.

For those of you inside the thumb, let's be honest you know where Caseville's the rest of us that need help.

PARKING – Is available north of the transition area.  Only park in designated parking sports.  PLEASE ENTER AND EXIT VIA THE NORTH END OF THE PARK TO LIMIT INTERFERENCE WITH THE RACE COURSE!!!

TRANSITION – ONLY athletes (and parents for Youth Participants) are allowed in the transition area.  Once transition closes, it will remain closed to athletes until the LAST biker has exited transition.  The Transition Captain may choose to begin allowing early access to a limited numbers of athletes to retrieve their gear but this will be at his/her discretion.  If given access, PLEASE remain respectful of athletes who are still competing and may be entering/exiting transition.  Safety is foremost, but security is important too so you must exit transition at the point deemed proper by the Transition Captain.

Tri To Finish is committed to making this a memorable event for the participants and spectators alike. Every finisher from first to last will enjoy an exciting finish line. All participants will receive a high quality event t-shirt, but Half Iron Distance athletes will also receive an additional, unique item to commemorate this event.

OVERALL FASTEST MALE & FEMALE in the Half Iron Tri, Olypic Tri, Sprint Tri, and Sprint Distance Duathlon wins free entry to next years race as well as a yet to be announced award.

Podium Presentation for OVERALL winners of each event – Male and Female – will begin approximately 15 minutes after the last Overall Winner crosses the finish line for each event.

AGE GROUP Awards for each event will begin ONLY after the last participant in that event crosses the finish line (or once event cutoff time has been reached).   Participants MUST be present to receive Age Group Awards*.

* We apologize for any inconvenience this presents, but we truly believe that each Multisport Event is exactly that:  an EVENT.  Age Groupers finish at different times throughout races.  It is unfair and unsportsmanlike to begin ceremonies for which a participant may be eligible if that participant has not yet reached the finish line.  Please be courteous of and encouraging to fellow athletes.

NOTE:  All participants will receive their finisher medals upon completion of their event at the finish line

FREE Finisher Photos

As we’ve done from the outset, Tri To Finish provides FREE Finisher Photos from Meaningful Moments Photography available for download to participants.  No strings attached!


Results will be displayed at the event and will be posted at TRITOFINISH.COM within 48 hours of race completion.
