While we started with Grand Rapids Triathlon and Michigan Titanium, we have since expanded into gravel cycling, road cycling, trail running, and road running while not forgetting our tri roots. New for 2024 will be a tri series including all 6 of our triathlons (Grand Rapids Tri, Michigan Titanium, Grand Haven Tri, Bear Lake Tri, and our two gravel triathlons, Ugly Dog Gravel Tri and The Dirty Mitten). We also produce three gravel bike events: Waterloo G+G, The Dirty Mitten Gravel Bike Race, & Rode To Hell along with the state's largest road bike event, Grand Rapids Gran Fondo. If running is your thing be sure to check out the Armed Services Marathon and the Brainy Day trail run. We have something for everyone!
