  • Organised?
  • Events on time?

  • Lots of volunteers to help?
  • Plenty of drink stations?

  • Post race activities?
  • Overall course based on my ability:

  • Comments: USA Productions puts on a good race, and this was a good course for the most part. I went into this hoping to go sub-6, and then after I rode the course a few weeks ago and with the hills and what not I didn't think it would happen. Even though I only made it by 10 seconds, I still made it. :D

  • Comments: First race, I didn't finish in time to see the post race activities, the food was gone. Other than that it was a great first triathlon. Could have started smaller but any smaller and I would not have been satisfied. Looking forward to more triathlons and eventually a 140.6!

  • Comments: PROS: -Awesome volunteers and athletes who were both VERY supportive and encouraging of one another. -Road closures for the bike course left me feeling safe and worry free of any traffic coming onto the course. CONS: -The aid station to fill bottles with water/cytomax were not set up for transition until 10min til start time. -No nutrition/gels provided on the bike course -Post race activities.... What post race activities? It was a ghost town, with all the vendor tents packed up and gone, no music, or announcer at the finish chute. Overall, the course was amazing but the organization of the event could use some major work.
