Michigan Event Management

We are the race directors and owners of the Grand Rapids Triathlon, Michigan Titanium Triathlon and The Dirty Mitten Gravel Triathlon.

Jon Conkling

Level 1 USAT Certified Race Director

Jon’s two passions are design and triathlon. By combining these together, he is excited to be transitioning from triathlete to race director. As an active member of the West Michigan triathlon community for a number of years, including through his endurance apparel company, Drivn Threads, Jon is focused on ensuring that all participants and spectators have a great race experience, be it their first or tenth. Since starting out with sprints and Olympics in 2012, he has since moved up to full distance triathlons, in addition to numerable running races and marathons.

John Mosey

Level 1 USAT Certified Race Director

In 2011 John was 100 pounds overweight and unable to run for 30 seconds. Fast forward a year and he was down 70 pounds, had successfully completed the Riverbank Run, and raised money for a worthwhile charity. Like many triathletes he transitioned to multisport as an injured runner and has since completed all distances, from a sprint up to the full. His favorite discipline is cycling, and he can often be found trying to talk his friends into doing questionable things with him, such as signing up for Michigan Coast 2 Coast, a 210-mile one day gravel race across the State.
