  • Comments: Compared to the other 3 Ironman races I have done this was a really poor job. Logistics was a frigin nightmare. Holding the IM village, transition, and athlete parking in a cow pasture and being surprised when it turned into a mud puddle when it rained, is just amazing. I'm just glad I wasn't the guy who had the Mercedes sunk into to the fenders in the mud on Saturday. Transition was a mud puddle, the "shuttles" were unsafe, ran late and force you to walk way to much on the morning of the race, you were forced to scrammble, then race started late cause they couldn't figure out hurding 1400 people down to the start and dropping off the dry clothes bags and then getting every one in the water would take more than double the 15 minute allotted, the course not having miles markers on the bike or run, then bike only have 1 porta potty on the course and having an aid station on the ascent of a hill, having an aid run out of fluids (closest one to transitions too), the traffic jams before,

  • Comments: Great race, tough course and great people. The support from the towns around the way and the finish area is amazing! Tough Ironman but well worth the effort.
