Welcome to the 2012 Grand Haven Triathlon and Duathlon, presented by Grand Haven Bone & Joint. This USAT sanctioned event hosts an olympic distance triathlon, sprint distance triathlon and a sprint distance duathlon. Relay teams are welcome for any of the 3 events. All 3 races will take place on Sunday, July 8, 2012. The swim portion of the triathlons will start on the clean waterfront of Lake Michigan. The bike course will take athletes out on scenic Lakeshore Drive and the run will take place on the popular boardwalk along the riverfront. The transition area, finish line, post race awards, raffle picnic and concert will take place at Mulligan’s Hollow, adjacent to the Tri Cities Family YMCA.
A pre-race expo will be held on Saturday, July 07, 2012 at the Tri Cities Family YMCA. This will run from 2:00PM to 6:00PM. Athletes can pick up their race packet, get body marked, late register, view course maps and get instructions from the race director. Sponsors and vendors will also be set up making available last minute items and services that you’ll find very beneficial. Due to low demand, the pasta dinner has been cancelled for this year. As a result, we have reduced the entry fee, accordingly.
Back by popular and growing demand, the kid’s triathlon will take place on Saturday morning, July 07, 2012. Children ages 6 through 13 are invited to participate in this fun filled event. Bring the entire family as the Tri Cities area offers something for everyone and is a wonderful vacation getaway. The Grand Haven Triathlon and Duathlon is a great weekend event for the serious veteran, beginner triathlete and children.
