Bike - Classic Course

The bike portion of the event starts at the Frankfort Open Space and travels along the paved Betsie Valley Trail to the East and South. This is a six (6) mile out & back course so you will traverse the same areas throughout the stage. The course is composed of asphalt pavement & a small amount of wood boardwalk. It is quite flat, with two bridges over the Betsie River and only one road crossing. Due to the out & back format the rules of the road must be strictly followed and all travel must be to the right hand side of the lane. Overtaking will only occur when there is no oncoming traffic. When you return to Frankfort you will be directed toward the transition area to rack your bike in your assigned area.

Boat - Classic Course

Dependent on the weather conditions and other factors this will be an out and back course, in the event that the course changes from the one shown, notification will occur at the racer meeting on race day. This is a one (01) mile paddle. At the conclusion of the stage you will exit the water at the same location you started and with the assistance of the course workers place your watercraft in your assigned area.
