The MI Titanium is a USAT sanctioned full and half iron-distance triathlon taking place in Grand Rapids (Versluis Park) on Sunday, August 26. It’s organized by Tris for Health, a group of triathletes who are passionate about growing a healthy community—the same group responsible for the Grand Rapids Triathlon.
So what’s a full iron-distance triathlon you may ask? It’s some pretty amazing athletes who complete a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and 26.2 mile run. Not ready (like me) to do a full or half-iron distance triathlon? No worries…you can still be part of the experience by volunteering. Two opportunities:
1. Behind the scenes, help assemble race packets and participant bags on Wednesday, August 22, from 6:30-8:30pm at Wolverine World Wide YMCA, 6555 Jupiter Avenue, Belmont, MI 49306. I’m looking for 10-15 people to work alongside me. PH Champions welcome!! Leave a comment or send an email to Cheryl.email@example.com if interested.
2. Race day (Sunday, August 26), lots and lots of volunteers needed for set-up & tear down, parking, aid stations, transition area, or on the race course. It’s gonna be a great event—and volunteers make all the difference in the world. Go to www.mititanium.com for details and registration, or email Melissa@tris4health.com.
Would love to see you there!
