Our Title Sponsor

Racing towards a healthier, more active community one stroke, pedal and stride at a time.

Huntington Bank has been the title sponsor of the Grand Rapids Triathlon since its inception in 2011. Without their continued support, the race would not be what it is today going into our 10th year.

From John Irwin, President, Huntington West Michigan Region

I am so proud of the fact that Huntington has been a sponsor of this event since its inception. We are all blessed to have wonderful Race Directors and volunteers that have made the GR Tri a destination race for many across the country. Triathlons promote healthy lifestyles with three disciplines which provide great cross-training opportunities. Most importantly, lifetime friendships are formed on training runs, long country rides, and pool time!

I conclude with something I have stated before: I believe that the GR Tri is one of the most well organized and friendliest triathlons in the country. I hope you find that to be your experience as well. Encourage one another!
