  • Comments: Really glad I went back to do Quassy Rev Oly distance again, 3 years later. I really do love the course and all of its hills, though I do need to work more on them!

  • Comments: Rev puts on a great race. The swag bag this year was a little light compared to the HIM they did last year at OOB. There were plenty of volunteers around the course and things were managed very well.

  • Comments: Rev3 and Quassy are fantastic. I'm not sure if I'll travel to any of their other races but definitely doing this one again. I'm leaning towards the Revolution (Oly on Saturday, HIM on Sunday) next year. I can race the Oly and use the Half as a hard training day for IMLP. We'll see.

  • Comments: overall a great first triathlon experience. event seemed pretty well organized, especially given the weather. tough, challenging course. goal was to break 3 hours but a couple bike malfunctions, rain, and that last short steep hill on the run made me come up a bit short. very satisfied overall with performance, look forward to the next one.

  • Comments: COuldn't do anything about the rain which turned the finish line and expo into a muddy mess, but great volunteers toughing it out in the rain and the rain tapered off once we finished.

  • Comments: I thought from the beginning I was over my head in signing up for this race. I was right. When I drove the course the night b4, I thought I might DNF, and that was before the I knew about the rain. I finished, I didn't get hurt, I wasn't last, except in my age group of 11 people and I helped some one and thanked every one.I prayed for many.

  • Comments: Rev3 puts on a great race. These were nasty conditions, and Rev3 still executed - great attitudes from their team and volunteers, good swag, food, everything. I did the HIM the past 2 years, but did the Oly this year because I had a commitment on Sunday. Oly was done well, just like the HIM and was a good challenging course. Happy with the race and my performance, despite a nasty, rainy day.

  • Comments: Rev 3 really puts on a great race. Well organized and they did a great job considering the weather. I guess it's easy to put on a race when it's warm and sunny, but they really helped me to feel like I was safe on the course. Plenty of signage and verbal cues on the tough downhill/ turn combinations on the bike. Fantastic aid stations on the run (water, gatorade, bananas, gu). Overall a great race, especially considering the conditions.

  • Comments: Rev 3 puts on a great race. I've never done a WTC race, so I can't compare but Rev3 Quassy is a first class race all around. Great Race for families, with the Little Rev Family Adventure Race and the race being at a amusement park (Sutiable for little kids, not so much teenagers)

  • Comments: Very good time! Quazzy added a new wooden roller coaster, Recovery Pump had the recovery lounge and the big screen was cool. The little Rev Kids adventure race, concerts and a chance to hang with the pros. Plus a nice food spread. And this was the warm up event!

  • Comments: I simply cannot say enough good things about the Rev3 organization, staff, and the AMAZING volunteers who came out to help at this wonderful, beautiful venue. The volunteers made the race. They were super supportive, vocal and helpful. THANK YOU, everyone!! I never did a 'big organization' race before and was very impressed with the VIP treatment Rev3 gave the racers. We had our own personalized transition spots (name, bib # on a laminated tag), personalized bib # with our first name, and very good security for the transition area. Upon dropping off my bike in transition, I was personally escorted to my spot. Very cool! Every person was checked, every bike was made sure it matched the owner. The expo was nice, scored some free goodies from the sponsors. I rented a wetsuit from all3sports.com which was very convenient (place order online ahead of time and they bring it to the race for you to pick up, plus you just return it to them at their store at the expo after you are

  • Comments: This was a great race and a great distance. First time doing an Olympic, and I like the longer distance. Rev 3 did an excellent job with everything. I only wish that I would have the opportunity to come back and race it again next year to see what I could do with some more hill training. Eric warned us at the prerace meeting that the course was brutal, and even though it was, it was fun and challenging enough that you wanted to be done, yet wanted more. I had a great time, would definitely recommend.
