Belle Isle Beach
Detroit, Michigan
Click to go to the web site for the Motor City Triathlon in Detroit, Michigan

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!

Beginning 2017 both Motor City and the Michigan Championship will use the exact same venue and courses. In the past we were asked to change the venue. We will also always follow 2 weeks after the Grand Prix. In previous years we were one week. So this will push the event further into June, but ensure the entire Grand Prix set is vacated the venue we use. We will be utilizing Shelter 1 area, which is located directly behind the 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.
