RUN DIRECTOR -  Brad
From Grand Blanc, MI

I’m excited to be a part of FirstTry again this year! I started in triathlon at a race just like this. I remember the questions, race jitters and fear of the unknown. Since then I've completed 10 Ironman's and many other triathlon races all over the world. I love being able to share that knowledge and see so many new athletes conquer their fears and cross that finish line with a smile. Come join our triathlon family and give FirstTry a try!





REGISTRATION DIRECTOR and CLINICS DIRECTOR - Kat
From Fenton, MI
"I raced my first tri in 2008.  Like many of you, I came from a non-endurance background and hadn't done anything like a triathlon before. I'm a bit of an adrenaline junkie and wanted a challenge, so went for it. After my first race I fell in love with the sport and graduated to longer distances including two full Ironman races!!  I volunteered for FirstTry last year and loved the encouraging environment and spirit of all the volunteers and you racers!  This year, I've expanded my involvement. I love what triathlon has done for me mentally and physically and can't wait to spread that joy to you!"
