A good friend of mine asked me to pick an event that we could train for together this fall. So in the process of looking at what running, biking, du/tri and adventure events are coming up in the Grand Rapids region, I have added a bunch of new events to my Grand Rapids Events page.
Even if you don’t live in the immediate area, check it out! Something might sound exciting! And if you know about a cool event in the area that I don’t have on the list (I know I didn’t get everything), tell me in the comments, and I’ll add it.
I’m looking forward to the first ever Grand Rapids Mud Run coming up in August and the Iceman Cometh Challenge in November. I’m already registered for those races.
But what else to do? I’m thinking about doing the Dunes Du again, because it was so much fun last year. And some friends and I are considering forming a couple 2-person teams for the Moosejaw Fall Adventure Challenge – a 4-6 hour race of canoeing, mountain biking, orienteering and trekking. I’ve never done anything like it before, but it sounds pretty awesome!
What are your late summer/fall event plans?
