Downtown Frankfort
Frankfort, MI United States

This 10 mile triathlon event in Frankfort features: 6 mile bike, 1 mile kayak/SUP & a 3 mile run.

Like the popular M-22 Challenge, Tri-Up North has a “paddle” portion, instead of swimming.

“The course is safe, flat and fast and we want area youth and adults, who may have never raced, to give it a try. It’s about taking on a manageable challenge and conquering it.” The 6-mile bike portion is along the Betsie Valley Trail adjacent to the Betsie River. “The trail is canopied with trees and has great fall color.”

Participants can use a traditional kayak for the 1-mile paddle or stand-up-paddleboard (SUP). Bring your own equipment or rentals are available.

Finally, the 3-mile run along the Bay finishes in downtown Frankfort at the Taste-of-Benzie celebration.

Early registration is $35 for youth 18 under and $40 adults.
