The Blue Water Area Convention and Visitors Bureau welcome the 3 Disciplines to the Blue Water region. The 3 Disciplines bring athletes to communities to experience the area and compete in challenging multiple-stage competitions. They offer marathons, triathlon, duathon, aquabike and kayak races in the mid-east region including Michigan, Ohio and Indiana. The International Triathlon will take place August 31 starting at 8:00 a.m at Lakeside Park. There will be five classes including swimming, biking and running plus kayak/paddle board, bike and run each with varying distances. Over 250 participants will be taking part in this multi-sport challenge starting at Lakeside Beach. The course will take the runners and bikers on M-25 out into our rural areas back in the city along our beautiful waterway, we are asking residents to watch for the safety of these athletics on the roads and when leaving their driveways. After the event racers with families and friends will be able to enjoy the area and “Discover the Blue”.
