  • Comments: As this was my first triathlon attending and participating in I was pleased overall. The volunteers was outstanding! Cold not have gotten through this race without them. Even after seeing over 2 hours of racers, they were enthusiastic about cheering me on. Already planning to do this again next year!

  • Comments: Great race - big but well supported - I did it last year and came back this year. As it was one two races from last year (my first in the sport) that I was doing again, it was an A race. I had a goal time of 1:11 with a stretch of 1:09 - I made my stretch goal and felt simply great. Lots of hard work, a good plan of rest for the last week and some mental toughness to deal with injury all paid off. I finished second and was it was I expected. The guy who beat me was .07 faster than last year - I beat him at longer swim and bikes - he is a faster runner. Very pleased

  • Comments: More volunteers this year and everything flowed better. The only negative is that this year we couldn't use the facilities in the YMCA that were available to us last year. I do understand but liked it better before.

  • Comments: Compared to Gold Rush, this is a much better tri - simply easier. The bike course is better and the run is better. I had three goals: 1) Break 1:20 2) Break 1:18 (was going to have too race well to do this) 3) Stretch goal - break 1:16 ( would have to really race well and transition well) - I thought I could do it but the match was fuzzy. So going 1:13:10 was unexpected but really pleased. The swim and bike were positives and the run was ok. Need to get faster there somehow.

  • Comments: I will absolutely do this race next year. I'd also like to give a big thumbs up to those who stuck around to watch the last couple of runners finish. It was odd to have random people cheering for me since any competitions I've been involved in rarely had anything like that. But, if it is the norm, I can see why so many people love triathlons. The only thing I would think to change would be actual signs marking the Mount and Dismount lines. They were spray painted onto the ground and could have been made a little more visible.

  • Comments: The Ballantyne area is beautiful and the Morrison YMCA is a fantastic facility. I can't wait for next year to come back.

  • Comments: For a first race I think they did a good job. They shortened the bike course from what was planned (Thanks) and changed the swim from left lane to right lane (Confused me under the lane dividers). I will come back next year.
