Haven't did this Tri, but the area is nice, as well as I've heard GREAT things about the race.  Seems like the Tremont group supports all the other central events, lets support them!!!  Great touch with offering a Finisher Medal.

Thanks bigr82!  This course is fast!  Come set a new PR.  It is also great for beginners.  It is a pool swim and you get your own 1/2 of a lane to swim in.  No passing!

I'm not sure what I was thinking about when I typed that 2nd post.  We will be defending our Men's relay team championship and overall best time.  There are 2 other teams that I know of who are looking to knock us off.  Should be a fun day

Registered my son and I today.  Have heard that the pool swim is NOT serpentine.  Any insight in to how that works / how long it takes to get the entire field through the swim?

Correct - the swim is NOT a serpentine swim, designed with the beginner triathlete in mind. Each swimmer will be assigned a half of lane, and will complete the entire 8 laps (16 lengths) in that half.

The pool will be 6 lanes - with first wave being 12 swimmers. Swimmers will be seeded by swim time to allow for the most efficient swim portion possible. As the first swimmer exits the water, #13 will have been staged to jump right in a begin their swim. This will continue as swimmers exit.........14, 15, 16............there will be a swim director to let you know, in advance, what lane you will be entering.

I will try to have everyone through the swim by 9:30 a.m. That's the goal! If folks enter accurate swim times, the easier this will be. Last year, 9:40 was the last swimmer and we began the race at 7:30. We have moved the start time to 7:00 a.m. for this years event.

Hope this helps!

Nice job with the event yesterday!!!  It was very well run and a great time.  Think my favorite part was the towel wrapped, ice water soaked, water bottles at the finish.  Who ever thought of that one is a genius.

I plan on coming back for this one next year as it's got a great atmosphere.

Great event! Yeah, the cold water and towel and the end was a great touch. It was my first and I'm glad I made the 2hr trip to Tremont. Will be back next year.
