  • Comments: This was a fun, well-organized event in a pretty venue with a challenging course. Only complaints are that the swim may have been inaccurate, and there were a couple confusing turns on the bike course. A couple guys did make the wrong turns. Other than that, it was well run with wonderful volunteers and a great race director. Oh- wish someone had been taking finisher photos, too!

  • Comments: It was a scary hot day and there was not a first aid station (just a tent with two cots). A lot of people could have used IVs and at one point they had to wait for a medical team to arrive as someone needed medical attention after the race. I know they could not have expected that level of heat but they should have brought in medical personal as day got warmer. It could have been dangerous.

  • Comments: This course is just brutal. The hills on the bike aren't too steep or long, I could just never get into a rhythm because of the hills. The run course is the worst, being so hilly the first 6 miles and so boring and dull the last 7. There are a TON of volunteers out and plenty of water stations. Organization was great, good amenities and nice tech Tshirt. This is my second year to do this race, and while I've enjoyed it both years, if I do another 1/2 IM will probably find another one.

  • Comments: I can't believe I'm about to type this, but major kudos to Race Day Events. I've done 5 of their races this year, mostly because they're convenient, and every one has had problems with organization, timely awards, accurately marked courses, etc. Atomic Man was the exception. They did a great job and I really appreciate it given the difficulty of the course and the day.

  • Comments: The organization of the race and the volunteers were great. The weather was terrible, but they made sure everyone was safe and had a good time and were well cared for. THe course itself is very tough with all hte hills. Overall, I was pleased with myself. The swim definitely could have been better, but I still had a good time. THe flats sucked on the bike but, without those, I think I would've done 2:50 easily, maybe better. The run was slower than I wanted and expected, but all things considered, not too bad. I would love to do another 1/2 iron on a flat course and see what I could do 5:15 is easily reachable

  • Comments: This was a great race for me and a really nice way to end the season (30 minute PR). It also gives me a nice goal for next season. For now though, it's time to eat some nachos, drink some beer, and watch as much football as humanly possible.
