Grand Rapids Virtual Triathlon 9.5

Experience A New Way to Tri and Compete

We are living in unprecedented times dealing with COVID-19 and it has changed the way we gather as groups and hold events for 2020.

While the 10th Anniversary of Grand Rapids Triathlon has been postponed until 2021, that doesn’t mean you can’t apply your months of training to a new kind of triathlon. Leveraging new technologies and offerings by our strategic partners Sportstats and FinisherPix, we are proud to announce Grand Rapids VIRTUAL Triathlon 9.5!

What is Grand Rapids VIRTUAL Triathlon?

This event is a way for you to swim, bike and run whenever it works for you during the month of June. You can chose to do any of the event legs indoor or outdoor and staged however works best for you. Complete a sprint, olympic or half triathlon, duathlon or aquabike. You can even do the swim-only event at those distances if you choose. Once done, you will have the option to upload your exercise data file to Sportstats new VIRTUAL TIMING website to be ranked against other competitors in your age group. If you chose not to upload a data file, you can simply mark your personal event as “complete” on Sportstats’ website to be listed with the finishers.

We will then ship out the GR-VIRTUAL-Tri 9.5 finisher medals, tshirts and bibs during the month of July. You will also receive via email a personalized finishline recording from legendary GRTri announcer, Larry Crabbe.

How Much Does It Cost?

For those who have NOT registered for the event yet, we are charging a flat fee of $100 for any distance you chose to do. A portion of the proceeds will go to benefit our official Grand Rapids Triathlon charity partner, Make-A-Wish® Michigan as well as Kids’ Food Basket.
