Welcome to the 2021 Mercy Health Grand Haven Triathlon & Duathlon:
Entering our 17th year, Grand Haven Triathlon & Duathlon is excited and looking forward to live racing in 2021. Grand Haven, Michigan (aka: Coast Guard City, USA) has received numerous awards as a great place to vacation and reside. Some of these awards include:
Grand Haven Triathlon & Duathlon is the perfect place for a destination event. In addition to a wonderful vacation destination for participants, family and friends, you'll enjoy swimming in the clear waters of Lake Michigan, alongside the State Park beach, THE smoothest and most scenic bike course in the Midwest and THE most scenic run course on the City Boardwalk along the City riverfront.
This event is embraced and supported by the City of Grand Haven and all its departments (Public Safety, Parks & Recreation and DPW), Ottawa County Sheriff Marine and Road Patrol Divisions, Ottawa County Road Commission, U.S. Coast Guard, Michigan DNR, various non-profit organizations, 250+ volunteers, sponsors and local residents cheering you all the way. The venue and courses are approved and will be ready for you on race day. Participants have numerous options to race. These include:
In addition to one of, if not THE most scenic venues, some of the amenities you'll receive include a quality "Dri-Fit" tech shirt, neck gator with event logo, custom swim cap with event logo, custom "Finisher" medal, overall and age group awards.
While the COVID - 19 Virus has wreaked havoc and hardship on everyone worldwide, we have collaborated with the City and County Health Department and have approval with our very detailed "COVID-19 Return to Racing Protocols". These may be viewed on the page titled COVID PROTOCOLS. While event details are approved and in place, we are waiting a little while before we open registration. We anticipate opening public registration after the holidays. You can check back on this website, our Facebook page or emails for updates when registration opens. We are truly excited and looking forward to seeing you and everyone at live events again and welcome the privilege to serve you.
