The Hawk Island Sprint Triathlon is Michigan's largest beginner-friendly multi-sport event because we welcome and support people of all ages, sizes, and abilities as they venture into the world of triathlon. Whenever possible, we make every effort to accommodate participants with special needs.
Held each year on the first Sunday after Memorial Day, it's also a great warm-up race for seasoned athletes gearing up for the summer triathlon season.
400m Swim - 16k Bike - 5k Run
Racers can self seed into elite, age group, or individual time-trial starts.
