Middle O’ Mitten Adult & Youth Triathlon
Sunday, June 22, 2014, 8:00 am
Start your summer off right with a visit to the middle of the mitten for the inaugural “Middle-O-’Mit” triathlon. Organizers and the communities within Clare County are excited to be hosting this first year event and are pulling out all the stops to make it a memorable one!
With sponsors the like of Jay’s Sporting Goods and Cops and Doughnuts, this event is sure to be fun. Organizers and sponsors intend for the Middle-O’-Mit to be an event unlike any other in the region. We here at Tri To Finish are excited about the possibilities as several of the “to be announced” amenities for this EVENT that we already know about are pretty cool.
This event is also special in that it includes a youth triathlon to be held shortly after the completion of the adult tri. Kids will complete a shorter, youth-appropriate distance event with volunteers lining the swim course and assisting in transition. The goal of this event will be to expose children to triathlon, build confidence in them, and of course, to have fun! Kids who want to compete a bit harder may enter the Youth Open Division, where rules are strictly enforced and the event is timed.
Hey, why not make it a weekend event? Reserve your campsite right at the park so that you’ll be close to the action all weekend.
NOTE: A portion of the proceeds from ALL Tri To Finish events goes to the Johnny Burke Children’s Foundation. Organizers of the Middle O’ Mit have committed to matching Tri To Finish’s donation for this event!
