Caseville County Park: 6400 Main St., Caseville, United States
After an amazing race in 2018, we’re back for the 8thannual TriToFinish Half Distance Triathlon in Caseville - the premier multisport event in Michigan's thumb area!
This year we are dedicating the event to a Thumb athlete who was very familiar to this race. Trever Engler passed away in an accident shortly after making the age group podium at Caseville Triathlon last year. He was a true ambassador to the sport, assisting athletes in transition or encouraging them on the courses and often volunteering his and his family’s time at triathlon and running events. A portion of the proceeds from the 2019 Caseville Triathlon will go to an account set up for the education of Trever’s daughters Alayna and Callie.
Caseville Triathlon provides athletes with a great opportunity to see more of the untapped thumb region. The swim will take place in the beautiful waters of Lake Huron, while the bike course will trace the waterline out and back. A smooth and flat course should usually makes for an incredibly fast bike split. The run course takes athletes toward the central part of the thumb and is relatively flat and on paved back roads.
A great race course at an exceptional price for a half distance triathlon... Put this event on your destination race list, as it is one you won’t want to miss.

Caseville, located directly off Lake Huron, is the perfect host town for a multisport event. Nestled amongst Caseville’s summer festivities, the Caseville Triathlon/Duathlon is a fast and beautiful race. The swim will take place in the crystal clear waters of Lake Huron with athletes completing a counter-clockwise rectangular swim (athletes will follow pre-determine buoys based on distance). The bike course is an out and back on wide shoulders of recently paved roads along Lake Huron. You'll enjoy picturesque views the entire way. Half Iron Distance and Olympic athletes will bike 22.53km and 20km (respectively) to the turnaround with Half Iron Athletes turning around just before entering the park and going back out on the course for a second lap. Sprint and Duathlon athletes will bike 10km to their turnaround. The run traverses a road parallel to the bike course. Half Distance athletes will run 2 loops of the Olympic run course. Olympic athletes will run 5km to their turnaround. Sprint and Duathlon athletes will run 2.5km to their turnaround.

PARKING – Sufficient parking is available at the venue location – Caseville County Park.
TRANSITION – ONLY athletes (and parents for Youth Participants) are allowed in the transition area. Once transition closes, it will remain closed to athletes until the LAST biker has exited transition. The Transition Captain may choose to begin allowing early access to a limited numbers of athletes to retrieve their gear but this will be at his/her discretion. If given access, PLEASE remain respectful of athletes who are still competing and may be entering/exiting transition. Safety is foremost, but security is important too so you must exit transition at the point deemed proper by the Transition Captain.
Half Distance athletes will be assigned bike racks separate from the remaining athletes. This will allow the Transition Captain to work with shorter distance athletes to remove their gear with limited interference to the longer distance athletes.

All registrants after that date/time will be provided with a TriToFinish t-shirt if event-specific shirts are unavailable on site. Ladies cut shirts are offered for this event, but ladies are NOT required to order them. Note that Ladies cut shirts are smaller and more form fitting than the unisex shirts.

TriToFinish is committed to making this a memorable event for the participants. Every finisher from first to last will enjoy an exciting finish line. All Olympic/Sprint/Duathlon participants will receive a high quality event t-shirt. Half Distance athletes will receive a high quality ¼ zip technical shirt.
OVERALL AWARDS will be provided to the Top 3 overall fastest Male and Female in the Half Distance Tri, Olympic Tri, Sprint Tri, and Sprint Distance Duathlon events. In addition:
AGE GROUP Awards will be provided 3 deep for the Half Distance, Olympic, Sprint and Sprint Duathlon events.

Participants MUST be present to receive Age Group Awards*.
* We apologize for any inconvenience this presents, but we truly believe that each Multisport Event is exactly that: an EVENT. Age Groupers finish at different times throughout races. It is unfair and unsportsmanlike to begin ceremonies for which a participant may be eligible for an award if that participant has not yet reached the finish line. Please be courteous of and encouraging to fellow athletes.
NOTE: All participants will receive their finisher medals upon completion of their event at the finish line
