Registration Information

As you know, the Rhoades McKee Reeds Lake Triathlon has become not only a premier West Michigan Race, but a community-favorite tradition of 36 years and counting. We first and foremost want to thank you for your support over the years. 

Due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 and its timeline and restrictions on large group gatherings, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Rhoades McKee Reeds Lake Triathlon, which was scheduled to take place on Saturday, September 12th.

Please know this decision was not made lightly. However, following national, state and local directives and guidelines, we cannot safely or under good conscious place a group of 1,000+ people in such close proximity while our world recovers from and tries to understand the long-term consequences of this pandemic. As much as we would love to continue planning for the race, keeping everyone involved safe, healthy and well now is our top priority.

While we are disappointed it’s come to this, we are filled with a renewed spirit to make next year’s race memorable. We look forward to racing in 2021, which is scheduled for Saturday, September 11th..

Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns you have regarding this decision.

In the meantime, stay active, stay safe and stay healthy!
