About This Activity
We’ve expanded on the popular Hawk Island Sprint Triathlon, Michigan's largest beginner-friendly multi-sport event!
The 2015 Hawk Island Triathlon Series now offers Kids, Sprint, and Olympic distance triathlons in the Spring and Fall. We proudly welcome and support people of all ages, sizes, and abilities as they venture into the world of triathlon or seek out more challanging distances. Whenever possible, we make every effort to accommodate participants.
Sprint: Sunday, September 13, 2015 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 challange yourself as your end of summer fitness goal.
Racers can self seed into elite, age group, or individual time-trial starts.
Olympic: Sunday, September 13, 2015 1000m Swim - 40k - 10k Run For more experienced racers or those looking to make the next step in triathlon, the Hawk Island Olympic Triathlon is available.

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 (11-14) 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.
