  • Comments: Considering my medical issues, I can't really comment on the post race activities. The volunteers and medical staff were great. I really like racing downtown. The lake was a mess but that isn't the organizer's fault. The bike leg was really crowded. They had the entire road for the most part but is was dicey at times working your way through the pack. Wish the weather was better but everyone konws what they are asking for on Labor Day in Texas.

  • Comments: Fun race. very fast bike course. I like the idea of the "rock and roll" races gettign in to tri's but they have some bugs to work out in terms of getting bands on the course. Still, a good time. If I were to only pick one ofthe down town austin races, I would pick the cap tex in may. Slightly cooler weather and a big pro turn out. I like to see the pros. I forgot to mention that I still took 9 minutes off of my time from last year on this course so I cant complain too much!

  • Comments: I thought this was an awesome race. It was well organized which is to be expected since it was done by High Five events and Jack and Adams. Everyone was so friendly and the course was so well marked I never had an issue. Will definitely be doing this race again and recommend it to anyone looking to do a sprint or olympic distance in the Central Texas area.

  • Comments: Very well run race! Great job to the race director and volunteers! Swim was better supported than any race I have done. So nice to see all those kayaks out there. Volunteers were AWESOME. Wish I could properly thank the gal who handed me my bag w/ insulin pump in the swim out. Pre-race meetings were well done, and shirts, hats, finisher medals were awesome. Very glad that I got to do this one as my first OLY. Only suggestion would be at the bike split for more laps vs. final lap, to station the volunteers with the signs well before the cones. By the time I saw them, I was already to the right of the cones and had to go back through them to get back to the left and on the course.

  • Comments: The race itself was well run and everything went smoothly. It is ironic that i was a little disappointed at the end of the race even though I beat almost every benchmark I had set for myself. I think it was just that I felt tired by the end (a result of pushing hard which is a good thing). We will see how I feel in a day or two.

  • Comments: I really like Austin. And there are some FAST folks in austin. Nothing like cranking out what I feel like is a good time and ending up well into the bottom half of my AG. Ill be back next year for sure.

  • Comments: Thank you to the volunteers (pink tye dye lady), THANK YOU to the EMT's and MEDICAL TENT Volunteers. To bad it didn't rain during the run, this was a fun race and will do it again and hopefully not with a trip to medical.

  • Comments: Biggest hit against this race were the timing chips that Run Far inexplicably decided to use. They were horrible. The were huge bulky plastic about 2"x1". What made them so much worse, though, was that they were about 1" THICK. That made getting your wetsuit on or off over it nearly impossible. I can't fathom why they used those.

  • Comments: Love this race, and I'll do it again next year if I get the chance, I just wish the weather would be more cooperative. I'm pretty fortunate in that my wave started right after the open with the pros in it, the rest of the field probably suffered much more than I did when they hit the run course.

  • Comments: Best race I've done so far organization wise. Great schwag and post race activities included a beer garden, live band, ice cream, and they let us leave with our bikes relatively quickly which was nice.

  • Comments: This is my 3rd year doing this race and so far have continued to improve every year (2:34:18, 2:10:44, 2:08:47). First two years the swim was wetsuit legal and was my taper A-race for the year so I was very happy to still beat my time from last year. This is a very well put on race and would recommend it to anyone.
