  • Comments: USA Productions made the right decision in moving this race entirely to Uvas Reservoir. It was formerly based at Almaden Lake (AKA, Duck Poop Lake) in San Jose. The water quality and swim experience at Uvas is far superior to Almaden Lake. Please keep this race at Uvas in the future!

  • Comments: Was a great race. My last races with USA Productions were in 2012 and were good events, but the medals and t-shirts were noticeably poor. This year it was great to receive tech-T shirts and custom medals... nice touch. Overall a well organized, fun race on excellent course with a lot of support. They did a good job communicating and accommodating the swim venue change and point-to-point race once Almaden lake wasn't a viable location for the swim. Well done!!

  • Comments: Everything is great about this triathlon -- except for the lake. It's too small and the water tastes bad. But I'm a terrible swimmer, so I'm probably just whining... The race organization, bike and run courses were superb. Just wait 'till next year -- I'll be ready for the swim.

  • Comments: Super fast course, The lake water was better than last year, the roads are mostly smooth as close to perfect as you will find these days, The run course was flat. Highly recommended.
