From February 17-19, 2017 an estimated 2,000+ athletes from all corners of Michigan will compete in the Fourth Annual Meijer State Games of Michigan - Winter Games. This year Muskegon Winter Sports Complex will host the Winter Try-Athlon as a portion of the state-wide games.
Three Winter Sports, One Event
This is your opportunity to try three Winter Olympic sports- luge, ice speedskating and cross country skiing. This event is family friendly and geared toward those who may have never done at least one of these sports. Of course, serious competitors are welcome as well. We recognize that many people may have very little experience in some of these sports. We will teach you everything you need to know in continuous 20 minute clinics at each venue.

Athletes score points at each sport ny placing in the top 4 places of each age group. First place receives 7 points, second receives 5 points, third receives 4 points and fourth receives 3 points. All finishers get at least one point for trying so it is important that you try all events and finish. Total points determines final placement. Awards go to the top three per age division. ***In the event of a tie in total points, the higher placement will be awarded to the participant that did better in the cross country ski portion of the triathlon.
The age divisions are as follows. Separate awards are given to males and females: 9 & under, 10-12, 13-16, 17-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+, College Team
