About This Activity

Race For The Border with Agents from U.S. Customs and Border Protection. This great race supports those agents who gave the ultimate sacrifice serving our country. Proceeds from this event will benefit the Roger L. Von Amelunxen Foundation to support families who lost loved ones that kept our country safe. Join us for a great day of racing!

The day will kick off with the Sprint Triathlon swim at 8:00am. Sprint triathletes will swim a rectangular course, following the green buoys before returning to T1. Super Sprint triathletes will start after the Sprint athletes and follow the orange buoys around their smaller rectangular swim course. After completing T1, triathletes will cycle a counterclockwise loop around Belle Isle. Sprint triathletes will complete 2 loops. Super Sprint triathletes will complete 1 loop. After transitioning through T2, triathletes will complete an out and back run. Sprint triathletes will complete the out and back twice, while Super Sprint triathletes will complete the out and back course once. Sprint duathletes will follow the same run and bike course as the Sprint triathletes.

For this event, Tri To Finish is proud to announce partnership with the Michigan Chapter of the National MS Society for this event!  This is the first ever triathlon the National MS Society has partnered up with and we hope that our participants will make it worth their while!  Unless you opt out in the registration process, The Michigan Chapter of the National MS Society will be contacting you with details on how you can help find a cure for MS!
