Michigan’s newest state park, Belle Isle sets the scene for arguably the fastest triathlon course in the entire country. If you’re looking for a PR, this is the place to do it!
Both Motor City and the Michigan Championship will use the exact same venue and courses. For Motor City we will always follow 2 weeks after the Grand Prix ensuring the island is clean and the Grand Prix production has vacated. The new home for the event is Shelter 1 area, which is located directly behind the flower clock / flag pole when you come on the island.
You will again have a dedicated closed Bike lane and vehicle lane for the bike portion of the event as well as a lane for the run course making this a closed course for your PR. Moving to a 7:30 a.m. start time will get the majority of athletes off the island road before the park gets busy. With the backdrop of the Motor City skyline on the west side and Windsor Ontario Canada on the east side this is truly a perfect multi-sport venue.
