Anyone doing the Jenison Triathlon in just under 2 weeks?  I would like to do it, but I will be out of town for a golf weekend with my buddies.  Many years ago I used to lifeguard at the park where the swim will be.  It should be a nice swim.  I'm looking forward to learning how they handle transitions.

I did go out and ride the bike course this weekend.  Good hills in the first 5-10 miles, at least for my currently tired legs.  I'm hoping they get pretty good volunteer and / or police coverage, because there are a few lights, stop signs, and at least one left turn (that I can recall) that the course will run through.  That is the only downfall I can see for their setup.  Will be very interesting to see how smooth it runs...I hope they pull it off great!

It looks like they have a nice prize purse for the winners, too...pretty impressive for a first year race.

Was hoping to do it this year but it may not work out that day. I swim in that lake all summer and live just off the bike course so it definately peaked my interest. Curious what kind of numbers they will get being a first year event.

This must have been a well kept secret as I didn't hear anything about a tri in Jenison...

Is it the first year?  Small capacity limits?

Yes, this is their first year. It is not a revival of the long defunct Georgetown Triathlon, but a whole new course. I can't remember where I first heard about it, honestly. Check out: www.jenisontriathlon.com. Still have time to register if interested. I wish I could do it! I think the capacity is 400 but that is hearsay...could be wrong.

I think I first heard about it at the end of last year. Wanna say the facebook page was up in late October? The race director seems to be advertising it pretty heavy around town, hard to say how many will show up cause it has to be one of the first tris of the year around here outdoors

The cost is too high for me.  Sucks cause I live right in Hudsonville, but it's kinda pricey.
