Dream, Believe, Achieve
June 27, 2019
This event takes place at the Sandy Pines Resort, a vacation resort located minutes from Downtown Grand Rapids, and it is the ultimate dream venue for a triathlon. We look forward to bringing that dream alive for not only this vacation resort but for thousands of athletes in the years to come.
You dream it, you believe it and we will help you achieve it in this beautiful resort destination. DBA is going into its 3rd year. It starts with a totally flat swim in a lake surrounded by pines that do their best to block the wind, making the water smooth and flat. The bike course is on mostly newly paved roads and has a little bit of everything. Lightly traveled country roads, mostly flat with a few rolling short hills.
One and two loops for your sprint and slightly longer Olympic distance bike courses, but they are very nice courses to say the least. The run course will keep you inside the resort to allow for hundreds of residents to cheer you on as you wind your way in and around the resort homes. The run course is flat, fast and shaded.
