6th Annual XTERRA Ionia Off Road Triathlon, Duathlon and XTERRA Trail Run events. Were changing things up a bit to keep things fresh. New Bike Course configuration adding more single track and distance. Its a two loop course riding the entire east and west loop once then entering west loop for a second time. Come check us out the Venue is great with plenty of parking no long distances to walk. Beach Pavilion has power, food concessions, restrooms and changing areas. Ionia State Recreation Area has camping available if interested. Call early as the park camping tends to sell out this weekend. Please note this event has NO SAME DAY REGISTRAIONS. If you plan on racing sign up by end of day Friday 7/19/18 Please note Ionia State Recreation Area is a State Park and Requires Michigan Park Passport or Day Pass to enter Park.
