This is the first year for the Barron Lake Triathlon, to be held in Niles, MI.
We are offering an Olympic Course ( one of the few in our area) as well as a Super Sprint course. Both distances will have relay options available so teams of two or three can participate!
Whether you are a seasoned competitor or a newbie, this is one to train for!
Proceeds to benefit the Steve Smith Foundation- Racing for Steve-O.
Join us for a fun Thanksgiving tradition! Get some fresh air before the big meal and do something good for the community at the same time.
What a perfect fit for Thanksgiving! It's all for the Faith Mission Shelter, which houses men, women and children who are in transition.
The Faith Mission also serves free meals for lunch and dinner 365 days a year to those who need to stretch their budget. Their doors are open 24/7!
NOTE: New starting location for the event this year. We will be starting and finishing at the Elkhart Youth and Community Center, formerly the YMCA, at 200 East Jackson! You can check in on Wednesday, November 26 from 4-7pm (which we strongly encourage) or on Thanksgiving morning from 6:30 am on.
10K starts at 8:30 am sharp! 5K will head out at 8:40am and Milers will go at 8:43.
We know you want to get back home to your day off, so while this is low key event, we are keeping a schedule!
Several courses to chose from at this unique venue- A Christmas tree farm! What a perfect spot for this time of year.
The 5K will be on paved/plowed roads. The 10K and Half Marathon will be offroad on trails around the farm with a section through a private forest.
