Voted Top 5 Best Triathlons for Beginners in the country.

Our #1 goal is providing you with the best race experience possible. Period. That’s why new triathletes choose us for their first tri, and why so many come back year-after-year.

Grand Rapids Triathlon is a two-day event on June 10 & 11, 2023 and the largest independent triathlon in Michigan. Saturday is our newbie-friendly day with Super Sprint & Sprint distances. Sunday trends towards more-experienced athletes with our Olympic & Half distances. Both days features triathlon, duathlon, aquabike, relay and swim-only events.

I've done this race every year since it started in 2011 and Tris4Health continues to improve it. I highly suggest anyone interested to come out and give it a tri, they have a distance for all.
