2015 Grand Rapids Triathlon: Race brochure

Tris4Health, the organizer of the 2015 Grand Rapids Triathlon, asked RedLine once again to edit its race brochure. The working relationship between our organization and the Grand Rapids Triathlon goes back to 2012.

Whenever we’re asked to sponsor a local event, we don’t ask ourselves whether it will bring in new clients overnight. Instead, we ask ourselves, “Is it something that we can get behind?” In the case of the Grand Rapids Triathlon, the answer is an unequivocal “yes.” As a one-time marathoner myself (New York, 2002), I know firsthand how difficult and exhilarating it can be to complete a daunting physical task.

More than that, I know that the Grand Rapids Triathlon is a fantastic community event. It’s an opportunity for thousands of local athletes—from weekend warriors to elite athletes—to push themselves and share in a moment of collective physical effort.

2015 Grand Rapids Triathlon: A USAT national championship race

Race directors Ann and Andy Vidro are longtime friends of RedLine. They work incredibly hard for the better part of a year to put on a race that brings national exposure to top athletes. This year, like last year, USA Triathlon has chosen the Grand Rapids Triathlon as the host of a national championship race. Athletes competing in the half-distance triathlon who placed in the top 20 of their age division in 2014 made Team USA and can compete in the World Championships in Motala, Sweden on June 27 of this year. Not bad, Grand Rapids Triathlon!

2015 Grand Rapids Triathlon: How you can help

The Grand Rapids Triathlon needs volunteers! Volunteers are vital to the success of the race. They provide a safe environment for athletes and spectators—and they cheer on the athletes.

There are still plenty of volunteer positions open—at aid stations, along the courses, at the finish line, etc. Individuals and groups are welcome! Groups of 10–15 can earn $150 towards their group/organization for coming out to volunteer. Visit the Grand Rapids Triathlon website for more information or contact Holly Buyze at (616) 443-6636 or buyzeh@aol.com.

Interested in volunteering on June 14, 2015?

Fun fact: The Grand Rapids Triathlon website was designed by Kmotion Design, the same great people who designed RedLine’s company logo. Have a need for great design? Send a message to Katie at Kmotion Design.
