Inaugural Shi-Tri Postponed to 2021

New Date: 05/28/2021

The Fitness Coliseum in Owosso and the Friends of the Shiawassee River, in collaboration with the Shiawassee Regional Chamber of Commerce, have announced that the first-ever Shiawassee Triathlon (Shi~Tri), originally scheduled for Sunday, May 31, 2020, will be postponed for the safety of potential triathletes, volunteers and spectators with the uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 virus concerns.  The rescheduled date is set for Sunday, May 23, 2021. Current Shi-Tri registrants may select from one of two options moving forward: Remain a Loyal Registrant for 2021, or request a refund. 

The mission of the Shi~Tri continues to be to promote community fitness and to support the Friends of the Shiawassee River.  Proceeds from this next year’s event will go toward improvements to help everyone care, share, and enjoy our treasured Shiawassee River.  Next year’s Run/Paddle/Bike route will remain the same as the 2020 route - beginning and ending in Downtown Owosso along the Shiawassee River. 

The following 2020 event sponsors have graciously offered to remain sponsors of the 2021 event:  Memorial Healthcare (Presenting Sponsor), Norm Henry Shoes (Run Sponsor), Great Lake Fusion (Paddle Sponsor), Byk-Rak (Ride Sponsor), Shiawassee County Convention & Visitors Bureau (Underwriting Sponsor), and Darker Mfg. Co. (Award Design Sponsor).  In addition, the following businesses will support the 2021 event as Shi-Tribe Sponsors:  Advanced Eye Care, American Recycling Center, Inc., American Speedy Print (Owosso), DayStarr Communications, Feighner Docks, Hankerd Sportswear, Merit Laboratories, Inc., Qdoba, REMAX of Owosso, RWI Mfg, and Weather Vane Roofing.

Here Are Your Options:

To encourage the over 90 triathletes like yourself who have already registered for the 2020 Shi~Tri to remain dedicated to the success of next year’s event, the Shi~Tri organizers will offer those who remain registered

  • a free, one-year membership with the Friends of the Shiawassee River
  • a guaranteed price lock on the registration fee (anyone who has already paid will not be charged more if the rates go up next year)
  •  a complimentary Friends’ kayak raffle ticket for the drawing to be held in September 2020 and “Life is Better on the River” Friends’ decal
  •  the opportunity to participate in some practice paddles we plan to host prior to the 2021 Shi-Tri
  • NOTE:  Registration will remain open at $60/individual and $90/relay until April 30, 2020 to allow people to register as loyal registrants and take advantage of the benefits listed above

If you would like to delete your 2020 registration and receive a refund, you must select this second option by April 30, 2020.  Your registration fee will then be charged back to your credit card no later than the end of May.

Description
 

RUN the scenic river trail
PADDLE the beautiful Shiawassee River
RIDE  through city streets and country roads

The mission of the Shi~Tri is to promote community fitness and to support The Friends of the Shiawassee River. Proceeds from this year’s events will be put toward river improvements designed to help everyone Care, Share and Enjoy our treasured Shiawassee River.   

The Shi~Tri is a Run/Paddle/Bike Triathlon beginning and ending in Downtown Owosso, MI along the beautiful Shiawassee River. Participants begin with a 3.8-mile run/walk from the Armory to McCurdy Park in Corunna. From there, you will launch your kayak or canoe into the river and paddle 3.5 miles back to the Owosso Amphitheater where you will then bike a 9-mile loop through city streets and country roads.

This event can be completed by ANYONE! Treat it as a race and challenge yourself for a new personal best. Or, take your time and walk the river trail, float peacefully in your kayak or canoe and bike leisurely while enjoying the beautiful outdoors. You can even team up with friends to create a relay, divvy up the legs of the race, and complete it together!

An event like this also relies on the efforts of over 100, valued volunteers. Come join us in this wonderful, community-oriented experience as a volunteer-bring your family and friends! Registration is open for everyone interested at www.shi-tri.com.
