"Awesome event! I have done plenty of the “name brand” triathlons but nothing beats the feeling of a home grown gravel tri. You’ll never experience anything else like this."

Description

THE DIRTY MITTEN IS WEST MICHIGAN’S ONLY GRAVEL TRIATHLON AND THE PERFECT ENDING TO YOUR TRIATHLON SEASON!

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.

Other Tris4Health Events

We are more than just triathlons.

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.

NEW FOR 2023:
Join us as Gran Fondo returns as the Grand Rapids Gran Fondo, now a Tris4Health cycling event!
