2017-08-20 - MI Titanium

Event Info and Registration


We are a group of triathletes who are passionate about growing a Healthy Community. As we have progressed in the triathlon sport and as triathlon participation continues to hit all-time highs across the county, we felt it was time to bring a USAT Sanctioned Full & Half Iron-Distance Triathlons to Michigan. There are no other events of this caliber in the state. We feel this event will not only bring top athletes from across the country, it will also encourage a less experienced triathlete to participate in these next level events.

The main venue for the Mi Titanium is Versluis Park in Plainfield township. A 1.2 mile loop swim will be in Versluis Lake a very clean and clear lake that does not allow the use of gas motors. The Full Tri will be a double loop swim and the Half Tri will be a single loop. This is a spectator friendly swim. Transition is located in a large paved parking lot adjacent to the park. The Bike will leave the park on Northland drive and quickly turn on Cannonsburg Rd, generally heading east and back with a loop course. The Full Tri will be a double loop 112 mile bike and the Half Tri will be a single loop 56 miles. Following transition back at Versluis Park, the run will head south on Northland Drive to Grand River Ave. The out & back run course will go through Plainfield, Ada and Grand Rapids Townships, remaining east of the Beltline. The Full Tri is a double lap 26.2 marathon distance and the Half Tri will be one lap at 13.1 miles. The finish line is located at the drive into Versluis Park.
