  • Comments: Half zip long sleeve tech shirts-ROCK Coaster/ashtrays as awards, and medals only for the half. meh-and you ran out, how is that possible for a race that sold out? Being in a valley there isnt a pizza place to deliver-but Id like to see a food truck handle post race food-not saran wrapped sandwiches and cookies. Fruit and drinks were great. SETUP tent was selling all old gear. Been twice now and still likely to go back for a third-make the half a TRUE half and I may do that next year. Race results posted fast, and pictures posted fast. THANK YOU VOLUNTEERS AND POLICE!

  • Comments: Fantastic race. I'll definitely be back. Great to get out there and be in the same swim start as a few pro's. The venue is perfect for fall race simulation: cool temps, wetsuit swim, flat bike, out and back run with a long downhill finish. Loved it.

  • Comments: I was disappointed in packet pickup (2 volunteers and a line out the door). Helmet stickers, race bib, and bike number (weird only half was sticky taped). Hammer gel apple cinnamon and huckleberry offered. Race morning was fully staffed but if you didn't buy a chip bracelet at packet pickup you had to use your own or use the PLASTIC clip on (skin cutting) ones provided. Body marking was quick. Transition was LACKING! Getting into transition was a free for all. There was no national anthem. The event started on time. There were many kayaks on the water. 2 people assisting on the dock. No bottle exchange-noted in the race packet. Water stations were great. Post race there was a medic, there were helpers and the food was good. Sandwiches, chips, cookies, water, colas, pita bread, hummus, bean salad. Properformance hydration was there handing out samples (many bottles of cold drinks in 6 flavors). YOU COULD HAVE TAKEN ANY BIKE OUT OF TRANSITION YOU WANTED. NO-ONE CHECKING NUMBERS. But they

  • Comments: Love this race and feel it should replace Stumpy Creek on the ISO series as it is a much better race (and one that you can actually race, not suffer through). Water was perfect wetsuit temp. Drizzle on the bike slowed us down a little but helped on the run. Post race was full size sandwichs, cookies, hummus, pitas and chips. Race site is great. Downtown Waynesville is a awesome spot to spend a night.

  • Comments: Beautiful race site. Challenging course (more so than the event description) but not too tough. Post race was average. This series needs to invest a few bucks and number thier bike racks like the other setup series has. They did run out of water on the run while my wife was running...she wasn't too happy about that. The beauty of the course makes up for the little things that need to be improved.

  • Comments: I really like the race aside from finding the first half of the bike course too crowded. The weather was perfect and location is perfect for a nice weekend away from the house without having to drive that far. I'll probably be back next year.

  • Comments: Needed more volunteers on Friday check in. Race day volunteers were plentiful. Buoy drift -- what, you can't keep a buoy tether for 45 minutes in a still lake? There was also a timing situation where a lot of participants (1/3 or so) did not get any timing info for the bike or T2. That being said, the event site was very good and the course was pleasant. I would do this event again.

  • Comments: Loved, loved, loved the beauty of the venue! Would've wanted more lifeguards so that dude would not have given me a hard time when I stopped in the water. However, I definitely want to do this race again just becuase of where it is. Amazing!

  • Comments: Perhaps the clearest lake I've had a chance to swim in. Could easily see the bottom in 15+ feet of water. Pretty cool.

  • Comments: Like this race, wasn't thrilled about the swim but not the RD's fault. Post race refreshments were pretty crappy this time around. We had bbq last year which hit the spot. Had some sort of veggie wrap and crappy pasta salad this time. I'll eat good between race days. After a race, I want taste.

  • Comments: If you've never done a Setup Events race I highly recommend them. They put on flawless races with great post-race food and prompt awards. I couldn't ask for anything more.

  • Comments: I thought they were supposed to have some food tents after the race but I'm not sure if I just didn't see them or if they weren't there at all. Beautiful race site really nice lake definitely do this one next year with a hopefully much better race time!

  • Comments: Nice location, enjoyed the race. No power ade or gatorade at the post race which was disappointing. No beer either :) Oh, and to make Jeff & Dia feel better--I did suffer an injury today. Of all the freaking things, I was stuck by a bee while driving home. I put my arm down on the armrest while driving thru the Formula 1 portion of the course (hairpin corners on a 9% grade) and must have landed on a bee who chose that moment to land on my armrest. Bee stung in the car??? Nice!

  • Comments: It was the first time for this race and I am sure there will be more people there next year. Once people here about this venue and compare it to the Bandits Race course the following weekend, you will see more people come to this race. The volunteers were great and as usual set-upinc did a great job in site preparation and the overall running of the race. The mountains were beautiful and the race site was fantastic.
