  • Comments: The race venue is great. The city did a great job of hosting the event. The people of Augusta are great. The course beat me, but I will book this one again and I will have my revenge...

  • Comments: This is a very well run race considering the logistics of not being able to have a central transition area. The volunteers and support people were great! That being said, Augusta is not what I expected. It was a bit run down, a lot of run down houses and empty buildings. All things considered, I thought it was organized well. I would definitely recommend Augusta, especially for someone who is not a great swimmer.

  • Comments: Great race, great venue, great volunteers, great town. I can now see why WTC can charge a premium for their events. They put on a great race. I couldn't be happier with how it turned out for my first 70.3.

  • Comments: The race is very, very well run. The city of Augusta are amazing hosts, the volunteers are phenomenal, and the on-course support is excellent. I don't know if there's a better run with regards to cheering, screaming spectators anywhere. The run course is packed. It's a pretty exciting atmosphere.

  • Comments: Great race. I was kind of thinking I had a 4:30 in me but knew it would be hard. Took a lot of mental strength to keep pushing on the run. Physically the whole race was easy until mile 5 of the run, then it got brutal.

  • Comments: Hardest but most enjoyable triathlon I have done yet. It was my first half ironman and I would highly recommend it for any first timer. Weather and course were perfect. The event was well organized and planned with the only exception being that the finish area is over a mile from transition. Parking limited at transition left most of us to park near finish area. Not ideal for bringing a bike and gear that distance after completing 70.3. At least there are busses taking you back to transition. I rode my bike back most of the way. Still a great event. I would do it again next year but I will be competing in my first full Ironman in Chattanooga.

  • Comments: WTC puts on a good event. The volunteers were absolutely PHENOMENAL. Everyone was gracious and helpful and seemed so happy to be there. On course aid was top notch. Those people on the run course were absolutely phenomenal. They were cheering fools. For a first timer to HIM, this is the perfect venue. River assisted swim and a flat run. Can't get much better than that. The bike course does have a few roads that are rough, rough, rough.

  • Comments: The race was well organized with lots of volunteers everywhere. Running downtown was awesome. There were so many strangers that encouraged me the whole run it was unbelievable. I thought this was a great race for a first timer and would recommend it for anyone's first HIM. I will try and do this race again.

  • Comments: Overall, it was a great time on a fun course. Logistically getting back to transition to get all of your gear and such is challenging but everyone has to do it so people are cooperative and helpful. First HIM is in the books! Thank you, Augusta.

  • Comments: Great race! I will definitely do it again. As an average swimmer, you just can't beat a down river wetsuit legal swim. The bike is fast with a few somewhat challenging hills, but nothing too major. And the offers multiple opportunities for spectators to cheer on their athlete.
