Event Details

The Scene

With a heavy heart, the popular, long-standing half distance event on one of the countries best half bike courses has been deleted.  With athletes choosing to support a billion dollar chinese corporation versus a Michigan based small business we had to make this unfortunate decision.  Kenny’s father personally designed this course years ago to take the place of the old “Paul Bunyan” event before he passed so it is a sad decision for him.

The beautiful Lake Huron port town of East Tawas hosts the Sunrise Side Triathlons. The jewel of the east side of Michigan’s coastal tourist destinations is perfect for multi-sport. Plenty of shopping and restaurants await you on Newman Street.

Deleted half event means a new venue and site plan for the Olympic, Sprint and Super Sprint events.  All festivities will take place on Westover st. between Newman and Main.  A block off of US 23, and two blocks from Lake Huron.   The swim venue is perfect, on the bay in crystal clear Lake Huron, with a swim along the shoreline.

Spectators enjoy the perfect vantage point on the pier, white sandy beach,
The bike and run courses are second to none. The run course takes you out past the finish line, down and returning on Newman street, past some quaint shops, and through the residential area to the turnaround point.

“Great way to wind down your season, a fun clear cool swim, my favorite bike ride, smooth roads that challenge you all the way, with a nice run that has some great volunteers cheering you on!”
-Greg Glowicki
