About This Activity


Michigan's largest beginner-friendly multi-sport event is now in its 10th year!

The 2016 Hawk Island Triathlon offers Kids, Sprint, and Olympic distance events. We proudly welcome and support people of all ages, sizes, and abilities as they venture into the world of triathlon or seek out more challenging distances. Whenever possible, we make every effort to accommodate participants.

Sprint: Sunday, September 11, 2016

500m Swim - 16k Bike - 5k Run

The Fall Sprint Triathlon is held on the first Sunday after Labor Day, and is a great way to wrap-up your triathlon season or to challenge yourself as your end of summer fitness goal.

Racers can self seed into elite, age group, or individual time-trial starts.

Olympic: Sunday, September 11, 2016

1000m Swim - 40k - 10k Run

Kids Triathlon: Saturday, September 10, 2016

Get the whole family involved! Sign up young athletes who aren't yet ready to take on longer distances for our Kids Triathlon.

Distances vary according to age categories. Goldfish (6 and under) swim 25m, bike 150m, and run 100m. Dolphins (10 and under) swim 100m, bike 3 miles, and run 1 mile. Sharks (14 and under) swim 200m, bike 4.5 miles, and run 2 miles.

To ensure the safest race possible and to allow parents the best views of their young triathletes, the Kids courses are completely contained within Hawk Island Park and volunteers are available to help throughout the course.

Thank you!
