A portion of this event’s proceeds benefit our featured charity, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.

If one virtual event is exciting, consider the fun of three activities in one! Epic Races invites you to our all-new HeartMITri Virtual Triathlon. Complete your very own virtual multisport challenge, but at your pace and without the pressure of a race environment!

As a HeartMITri participant, you get to select which distance triathlon you’d like to complete: our Virtual Mini-Sprint Tri or our Virtual Sprint Tri. You can switch from one to the other if you’d like. Remember… this is your triathlon! Unlike an actual tri, you can complete your swim, bike, and run in any order. You can do all three activities on one day or you can do one activity per day or per week. The choice is completely up to you! Please note: your HeartMITri Virtual Triathlon must be completed by May 29, 2018.

 

Swim, Bike, and Run into Action!

Head to the 2018 HeartMITri Virtual Triathlon Facebook event page, “join” the event if you haven’t already, then upload a photo of your GPS tracker showing your swim, bike, and run workouts, share a selfie of yourself during your tri, or post a comment about your tri. You can also post your photos on Instagram and tag us (@epicraces) or tweet about it on Twitter and tag us (@epicraces). There is no need to report your tri to us! Letting us know about your HeartMITri via social media is preferred, but not mandatory!
  • All swag will be sent out on May 29, 2018!
