On-Course Practice

Swim, Bike & Run

Practice Swim: June 7, 2020 8:00 am – 9:00 am*

We will be holding a practice swim at the boat launch located on the corner of Thornapple River Dr. and Buttrick. The Sprint course will be monitored for this practice swim. For longer distances, we ask you swim the Sprint course multiple times but must be out of the water no later than 9:00am. A separate wave for newbies with pre-coaching session will be available as well starting at 8am, led by certified coaches.

Due to increased insurance rates and a river access fee the Grand Rapids Triathlon is now being charged, there will be a $10 fee for those wanting to participate in this event. You may pay this fee the day of the event or pre-pay by purchasing an On Course Swim pass available on our store site (COMING SOON).

All athletes must sign a waiver in order to participate. To download the waiver in advance click here
