Welcome to the 2017 Mercy Health Grand Haven Triathlon and Duathlon.

This premier, long-running, family friendly event hosts an olympic distance triathlon, a sprint distance triathon, an olympic distance duathlon and a sprint distance duathlon. Relay teams are allowed for all 4 events. All 4 races will take place on Sunday, July 9, 2017. 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 8, 2017 at the Tri Cities Family YMCA. This will run from 1:00PM to 5:00PM.  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.

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 or beginner triathlete.

This event could not be made possible without the generous support of the community, local agencies, volunteers and sponsors.  We would like to thank our generous sponsors: Mercy Health Partners, Northern Physical Therapy, Breakaway Bicycles and Fitness, Envision Radiology, Muskegon Surgical Associates, Pure Medical Spa, Scholten Fant Attorneys, WGHN, Home Depot, I – Tri Athletics, Emergency Health Partners, Clarke Animal Hospital, Glenpark Animal Hospital, Weiss Chiropractic and Straight Line Design. Our friends from Macatawa Bank will be on site with their snack wagon providing ice cream and water to athletes and spectators.

Best wishes with your training and we look forward to seeing you in Grand Haven, Michigan for this family friendly event.
