  • Description: The swim is always the question in new athletes minds, but is also the reason why this event has grown each year and has been chosen as Michigans’ Best of the US race year after year. At this point in the river the water has been tested to be among the cleanest in the entire state. The reason is it is constantly moving, you can see the bottom 20 feet down. The bike is awesome because it is closed and offers some great scenery with ships, Canada and Detroit on the islands sides, flat and lightning fast is the only way to put it. The run is new from the previous 6 years but athletes have said they like the new one better so we are keeping it. It will take you on the inside of the bike course so you are viewing the athletes on the bike as well. It will take you by the great Scott Fountain as well as across several foot bridges. Again flat and fast, with the Olympic course bringing all those athletes back by the finish line for lap 2 so everyone can cheer you on. You will be running and riding on much of the Detroit Grand Prix and marathon courses.
