Michigan Titanium – Organizing An Iron-Distance Independent

Independent Iron-Distance (140.6) events are somewhat hard to come by, so when a small group of triathletes organize one that is entering its seventh successful year, it’s a big deal!

Ann and Andy Vidro and Doug Tuttle have put in countless hours organized both the Michigan Titanium (Full/Half/Olympic plus AquaBike and Duathlon Options) and the Grand Rapids Triathlon (Sprint/Olympic/Half Distances) with their company Tris4Health.

On the show, we talk about a range of topics ranging from the transition from triathlete to race director of a sizable race (their first triathlon had almost 900 people!) as well as topics specific to one of the best-kept-secrets in the full-distance triathlon world, the Michigian Titanum.

You’ll enjoy hearing Ann, Andy and Doug share their passion in putting on the best event possible for their athletes, even when the unexpected happens.

If you’re looking for a full-distance race on a budget–their early-bird pricing (through Jan 1) can’t be beat. Plus, you’ll get the enjoyment of watching Lost in Transition host Chris Gerard suffer through his first full 😉
