About This Event
The 29th Annual Rhoades McKee Reeds Lake Triathlon will once again happen on the shores of Beautiful Reeds Lake. This premier West Michigan event consists of a 1/2 mile swim, 17.2 mile bike and finishing up with a 4.9 mile run. For the Triathlon, the first heat will go off at approximately 7:10am and then 8-9 heats starting approximately three to four minutes apart. Your team can be all male, all female or coed. We ask that each team member only complete 1 leg of the race. New for 2012 we are adding a Duathlon. This will consist of a 2 mile run, 17.2 mile bike and finishing up with a 4.9 mile run. For the Duathlon, the first leg will go off as a group at 7:10am or when the first heat of the swim goes off.
