The Team Lucky 7 Boyne City Triathlon is the most picturesque venue I’ve ever been to. All of the staff and volunteers were not only friendly and helpful, but also very encouraging, even cheering you on as you race. Tri To Finish puts on a top-notch event. It is also a great cause with proceeds going to neurological research.

Boyne is my favorite it’s so beautiful, the run and bike courses offer beautiful sites of the city and I can get distracted looking at the boats on the lake! The swim is pretty too!
