Barb Lindquist Presentation
Welcome to the Detroit Triathlon. A big thanks to USA Triathlon, the City of Detroit, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, and the staff at Belle Isle State Park for their strong support in this event.
Over the last two years, and since our inaugural event, we have enjoyed hosting elite athletes in their quest to earn a USA Triathlon elite license. In 2015, we staged the ITU Detroit World Paratriathlon Event, one of ten cities in the world with this special distinction. To see these athletes tackle the course with their physical disabilities was one of the most inspiring events we have been part of in our company’s history.
We are passionate about Michigan, the sport of triathlon, and providing an exciting race atmosphere. With the 2016 Summer Olympics and other scheduling matters, we have decided to take a hiatus from the event in 2016 with the goal of bringing the event back stronger in 2017. While we will miss hosting this competition in 2016, our memories will remain strong from two amazing years at the Detroit Triathlon.

Thank you for supporting the Detroit Triathlon.
