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

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

  • Comments: Race course, venue, organization and everything associated with race was great. This was my worst performance since Pigman. Several factors played into this but bottom line was that I didn't have a great pre race plan and I didn't execute any type of a plan. Really need to refocus and get ready for Pigman in 3 weeks.

  • Overall course based on my ability: Too hard

  • Comments: Great event, but I didn't train enough for the 1.2mi swim and consequently DNF it, both legs cramped at 0.6 mi. Turned in chip but went ahead and completed bike and run since it was first 1/2IM attempt. Will be back next year.

  • Comments: Really good aid station support on the run. HEED, water, cola + bananas, chips, pretzels. They also had ice cold rags, cups of ice, and Endurolytes available. Not such good support on the bike. There was a bottle exchange at mile 10 [but on the way back by they were out of water] and a bottle exchange on the second out/back leg that was well stocked when I went by both ways.

  • Comments: I would definitely do this race again. The bike course is flat, although the surface can be rough. The running route has a generous amount of shade. A good place for a PR.
