  • Comments: I like the course, and I like the convenience. It is also an inexpensive race. They keep it cheap by not using timing chips, but the timing and results were a nightmare. I got my swim split by a guy yelling out splits. My bike and run split are from my 305 - which I obviously did not have for swim. I eyeballed my overall time at the finish. I was mismarked in the WRONG age groups, and I race as a Clyde. I saw several other clydes that were mismarked that did not have time to correct. However, I know a guy that won his AG, but they had him not finishing until he inquired. They have no-time for me, but I finished and they took my tag to write my time one. Given that I only know 7 people who raced, they screwed up 2 of our results. They also tried to announce the best overall woman for the TWO races to someone that did not race that day. I seriously question the validity of the final results based on these facts. If they don't get more organized, I would only recommend this

  • Comments: I thought Canyon High staff and support personnel were awesome. I plan on doing this one again in August. I did however, make a suggestion to the race promoter/director of possibly starting the race 1 hour earlier next year. A 7am start time would be awesome as the temperature by 9:15am was ~100, no breeze, just dead still hot air, and if he is expecting the event to grow in number of athletes, then an earlier start time for different Waves will be crucial. No one will want to finish the run at 11am +100 degrees Well, perhaps those preparing for the IM . In all a great race, great event, and super peple. Thanx for your time. ~Yvette

  • Comments: This was a good sprint race which I would do again. I learned to respect the tri more than I did before. My body was in pain the entire time, which is different than a running race of equal or greater duration. This could probably be improved with an easier swim-I was expecting more time to find my groove but the swim ended too quickly and I was already tired by the start of the bike.

  • Comments: Race was pretty well organized. The turnout they had was probably double the turnout they had a few weeks prior, mostly due to LA Tri Club advertising the race on their email lists.
