  • Comments: This is a good local race, produced by an experienced event production company. It was very convenient to stay at the host hotel. The t-shirt was a bit questionable this year - hand-drawn design / logo on a baby-blue tech shirt? Not the most masculine / graphically interesting, but I guess I've got enough of those. Definitely preferred the cotton tee they gave out last year.

  • Comments: There was one water/aid station on the bike loop and two on the run. The bay swim was a bit shallow at times but I saw how far the sandbars came out at low tide so I was already aware that it would be shallow. Parking was on the ridiculous side because of the race location being on the Silver Strand. Beach lot parking filled up quickly and if you couldn't find a spot there you had to park in a residential area that made for a nice walk to the start/finish lines as well as the transition area. The race as a whole was great but it was also my first and so I have nothing else to compare it to. I enjoyed it and look forward to my next race.

  • Comments: Race was really fun. I only had 8 real weeks of tri training before this and was happy I chose this race for a "check" on my progress. I am doing Vineman 70.3 in July and this race gave me the confidence that I need to continue. Going to kick up the intensity of my workouts until Vineman.

  • Comments: First, I want to thank all the great volunteers who worked hard to help out, to encourage and cheer all participants. Special thanks to the San Diego Tri club members who were all over the place, cheering for all of us who participated. It is a low key race, with a great course. I enjoyed it a lot.

  • Comments: This race is well-organized and well-supported. The late Seal start made for a long pre-race morning, but there was no rush for the facilities and we got to watch the Frog waves start in the open ocean. I would like to do the Frog as it seems like a tough challenge, but since the event is so close to the Boston Marathon, I think I'll be limited to the Seal for the foreseeable future.

  • Comments: I love this race. I thought it was the best kept secret until I saw the turnout this year - wow! So many people, so well organized, and the most amazing post-race activities. Super cool race and a lock for next season.

  • Comments: This was a lot of fun. The bike course is the best i've been on. It will spoil me for the next couple races! There is a very good vibe, it was run in a professional manner, and it was just plain fun. It is definitely an early season oly/half I would recommend to anyone.

  • Comments: A bit of a bare bones race but seeing as it's probably the cheapest oly distance race in so-cal I don't mind, they had the important stuff and it was a fun atmosphere and a great day. I had a blast! This was my first oly distance race and I LOVE it. This is my distance, it's perfect (well, the swim could be shorter but oh well). I came within 35 seconds of my goal time so I am very happy with that. Only 4 weeks to Wildflower now, this race gave me some good confidence going into that. I'm still concerened about the distance and hills but I think I will be ok. Really need to get my swimming figured out also!

  • Comments: Awesome event. Though not the glitz and glamor of a larger event, this was an incredibly well run, smaller event. Definitely enjoyed every minute and was actually sad for a few moments there when I saw the end. Will be back next year for sure.
