The Dirty Mitten is based out of Camp Manitou-Lin, in Middleville, Michigan, 30 miles south of Grand Rapids. The race begins with a swim in Barlow Lake followed by a bike ride on the gravel roads of Barry County. Finally, challenge yourself with a wooded run on the trails of Camp Manitou-Lin.
This event has both Sprint, Olympic & Half distances along with Duathlon, Aquabike, and Relay options.
In the spirit of bike racing, drafting rules will not be enforced in the The Dirty Mitten events. Click here to understand the differences between draft-legal and non-draft-legal triathlon. Drafting is not allowed on aerobars.

While we started with Grand Rapids Triathlon and Michigan Titanium, we have since expanded into the gravel scene. We now produced not only three gravel bike events (Waterloo G+G, The Dirty Mitten Gravel Bike Race & Rode To Hell), but we also have two of only a few gravel triathlons in the country: Ugly Dog Gravel Triathlon and The Dirty Mitten. If trail running is your thing, we also offer the Brainy Day Trail Run.
