Since its inception in 2015, the Grand Traverse Triple Crown has rapidly developed into a preeminent multi-sport / multi-season endurance challenge.

With its legacy firmly planted as the toughest point-to-point ski race in North America, the GT Triple Crown defines a new generation of mountain sports competition.  A singular test of three pinnacle mountain disciplines – Ski, Trail Run & Mountain Bike, will challenge both individual perseverance, while also demanding concerted team strategizing in the first race stage  –  the ski to Aspen.

– FAQ –

What is Priority Registration?

Priority registration is early registration. It opens before the General Registration (which opens each year at 12:01 on 12/01). Priority registration requires you pay the full registration fee, but rather than stressing about whether or not you’ll get into the race on 12/01, you get a couple extra weeks to register at your leisure. 

Priority Registration will open November 17, 2023 for the Ski race for the first 45 athletes who commit themselves to the Triple Crown Series for that calendar year. These athletes will not only secure a Team slot into that year’s Ski race, but additionally secure their individual registration for both Summer GT events. Simply select “Triple Crown Registration” when the registration link opens.

Must I register in November to be a competitor in the 2023 Triple Crown?

No, however entry into the Ski race can be challenging, as General Registration sells out rapidly on December 1st.
Any athlete who receives a qualified 2024 Ski finish time may, at a later date, opt to enroll in the summer events as a Dual Sport athlete, thereby becoming an eligible Triple Crown contender.  Athletes may register for the Run, Bike, or Dual Sport events at anytime leading up to the summer races, pending availability of spots.

Do both Ski teammates have to enter themselves into the Triple Crown to receive priority entry into the winter event?

No. As long as one teammate commits to competing in the Triple Crown through the November priority registration,  this individual will have secured a team entry into the 2024 Ski event. If only one teammate is competing in the Triple Crown, that person should register FIRST as Team Captain.
