  • Comments: The race was late starting as the RD tried to accommodate all the late comers who were still parking at race start. And was quite crowded as compared to June/July races. They really need a few more racks if they are accepting so many racers. But it's a great, fun, easy sprint course that I keep doing!!

  • Comments: This was my very first triathalon a few years back. I've gone on to do many more, but I am fond of this race. It is exciting to have so many first timers! It is a fun, easy race. A great place to start and a great race to have a fun expirience and a good workout

  • Comments: Over 1,000 people racing made things pretty hairy, causing late start (by 10 min). Lots of very encouraging volunteers and workers. Very positive atmosphere, and large crowd of athletes meant large cheering crowd at finish. Transition area very centrally located, meaning not a lot of time getting from swim to bike or bike to run. Large crowd made for cramped transition area. Overall, an enjoyable experience. I used it as a brick workout, and it served that purpose well.

  • Comments: A solid race series for sure. It's really low-key, "just for fun" so it's tough to judge this one. Still, I had a good time, beat my goal of breaking 1 hour and outside of the swim, the rest of my experience was positive.

  • Comments: Good race for beginners. You have to get there early to get a decent transition spot or else you'll end up against a tree.

  • Comments: The race started late by 15-20 minutes. It was fun, but with 1000 people out there and with so many not knowing what to do, was a bit frustrating. I'm no expert, but I guess too many newbies are not coming to BT so they know what to do even if it is their first race.
