Event Details

With the recent rise of COVID-19 cases, this year’s Ann Arbor Tri is going to be a self-supported aka virtual event.

The bike course will be marked in white paint by 6 a.m. on August 1. That said, there are no guarantees the paint will last.
Please familiarize yourself with course maps and/or
download maps to your devices if that is available to you.  Happy Racing!

It’s everything you know and love about Ann Arbor Tri, but now you can race anytime between August 1 and August 16. Upload your time to the results page and compete for real awards that will be presented during our virtual award ceremony on August 17.

The iconic and classic Ann Arbor Tri continues the tradition!

Held in the Pinckney Recreation Area at Halfmoon Lake, one of the largest state parks in all of Michigan, you’ll swim the open waters of Halfmoon, bike the rolling paved country roads of the surrounding rural area, then run the Poto. It’s a classic course you’ll come back to again and again.

Support our featured charity, Make-A-Wish by joining DREAM TEAM. DREAM TEAM is a dedicated group of individuals coming together to form a TEAM! The DREAM TEAM participates in endurance events such as triathlons, marathons, 5ks, 10k, etc. and raise funds for Make-A-Wish Michigan, helping grant wishes to Michigan children with a critical illness. The Dream Team believes wish kids deserve to have a wish granted…but there are costs associated with granting wishes. By raising funds for Make-A-Wish Michigan and committing to participate in the race, we can help grant wishes!

You’ll get your choice of shirt and all of our options are pictured below!

It’s a virtual race with real awards which means we need your times!

How do I track my race? You may utilize Strava, Garmin, All Trails, or any other tracker of your choice

How do I enter my time? Click here for detailed instructions!

How do I time the swim? If you don’t have access to a tracking app to time the swim a watch is just fine! If you choose not to time the swim you will be asked to use the default time of 25min for the swim leg.

How will results be verified? We are all in this together! Although this race is set up differently we expect everyone will be a good sport when it comes to racing on our approved course and in the proper race category. We may contact you to verify race results if necessary.
