Event Details

Olympic • Sprint • Aquabike • Duathlon • Mini Sprint • Relay

Triathletes throughout Michigan have long considered Island Lake State Recreation Area, home of the Island Lake Triathlon, an epic training destination, ideal for any athlete preparing for a multisport event.  Set within a 4,000-acre park in Livingston County that offers an “up north” experience without leaving southeast Michigan. The terrain is a mixture of open brush land to mature hardwood forest, with some pockets of open meadows mixed in with a paved road of rolling hills weaving throughout.

You’ll swim the clear waters of Kent Lake, bike the park’s rolling, tree-lined hills, then run the panoramic final leg towards the lakeside finish line, then join in the post-race festivities including the best recovery meal and beer tent ever!

POST RACE PARTY SPONSOR: 26.2 BREW

For the past 7 years, Boston Beer will produce and sell a limited release beer called the “Samuel Adams Boston 26.2 Brew,” which commemorates the 120th Boston Marathon. It is a Gose style beer, with a relatively low alcohol level (4.5%). Special ingredients include Kosher salt and coriander.

As they are going to expand the areas they serve, we are proud and excited to announce that we will be serving 26.2 for participants 21 and older at the finish line of the Island Lake Triathlon!

Every member of the Epic Lifeguard Team has American Red Cross Waterfront Lifeguarding Certification in addition to basic American Red Cross Lifeguarding Certification. This means that our guards have all taken and passed an additional course in which they received training in the knowledge and skills needed to prevent and respond to emergencies in non-surf, open-water areas. Our superbly trained lifeguards are yet another reason our races are so Epic! Our lifeguards are also able to keep our swimmers safe thanks to our official SUP company, Red Star Board Company. We’re very grateful to have Red Star as part of Epic team.
