Triple Crown

                                  $5000 Cash Purse

Since it’s inception in 2015, the Grand Traverse Triple Crown has rapidly developed into a preeminent multi-sport / multi-season endurance challenge.   With its origins firmly planted as North America’s toughest point-to-point ski race, the GT Triple Crown defines a new generation of mountain sports competition.  This singular test of three pinnacle disciplines, Ski-Run-Bike, will challenge both individual perseverance, while also demanding concerted team strategizing in the first race, the ski stage to Aspen.

– How to Enter the Triple Crown –

Individual Competition: Registrations may be made until September 1st, 2017

Any athlete who receives a qualified finish time in the Grand Traverse Ski is deemed an eligible Triple Crown contender.

Winter athletes may enter themselves into the Individual Triple Crown competition by further registering via either of the online Summer registrations.


Individual Cash Purse Breakdown:
Male  &  Female
1st – $1,500
2nd – $700
3rd – $300       

Team Competition: Team Registration closes March 24th at 12:00 AM

To ensure competitive fairness, Team entrants must declare the SKI Team they will be associated with prior to the Winter Race on March 24th. 
Triple Crown Teams may be composed of either 2 or 3 separate athletes.  

To form a team, Summer athletes shall register online individually, electing to enter into the Triple Crown Team Competition when prompted.  Anytime after December 1st, once you are assured that you have a Ski Team to partner with, Summer athletes may register online citing the registration confirmation number of the Winter team they are associated with.

Mountain Run Registration                  Mountain Bike Registration

Teammates who accomplish the Ski race may choose to continue competing as teammates in the Team competition, with each Winter athlete racing one stage of the Summer races.  Alternatively, Winter teammates may each elect to assign their mutual Ski time to other Summer athletes, thereby creating 2 separate Triple Crown Teams in competition with one another. 

Another acceptable scenario… is where one Ski teammate may wish to continue competing in the Individual Triple Crown competition, while the other Ski teammate might desire to join with different athletes in the Team Triple Crown.

Triple Crown Team Prizes
The top three teams in the following categories will be awarded top finish prizes:

MALE Team  /  FEMALE Team  /  CO-ED Team

Frequently Asked Questions:

Must I register in October to be an Individual Triple Crown contender?
No, but entry into the winter ski race can be challenging, as it sells out quickly on December 1st.  If you gain entry into the Winter race, you may register yourself into the Individual Triple Crown competition anytime leading up to the Summer events.

Do both Winter teammates have to enter the Triple Crown to receive priority entry into the Winter event?
No.  As long as one Winter teammate commits to racing in the Triple Crown, that team will receive a reserved spot into the 2017 Winter event.

Refund Policy:
The same refund and transfer policies apply to each of the individual events.  Should you have to drop out of any one of the events you may submit a request for a percent refund based on the date of your refund submission.
