The Scene

Kalamazoo Counties, Coldbrook County Park is the scene for this year’s 35th Seahorse Triathlons and Duathlon, which has been the state’s big season opener to kickoff another great year of multi-sport.

Plenty of lodging opportunities between Battle Creek and Kalamazoo, as well as both modern and rustic camping available at the park.  Sleep in, wake up, and be 800m from the transition area. The swim is in a small clear lake with two loops for the Olympic distance athletes. The transition area, finish line, and post race festivities are all located in the back of the park closed to traffic.

The bike course is a great all right turn affair with one short climb and again two loops for the Olympic distance.  The run is entirely enclosed inside the park with a half cross country, half pavement course.  A great course that will keep you motivated and pushing as you can hear the finish line almost from every spot on the course.  A few short up hill and down hill sections as well.
