I've raced  the big and small races here in CO.  And have had mixed results with quality.  I think it comes down to Promoter and experience.  An promoter can put on a cheap race and do it really well if they know their environment.  A cheap race can be as high of quality easily as a high price race if the group putting on the race knows what they are doing and coordinates well.

This.  I disagree with the OPs original statement.  I am sure he knows of two races that fit his view, but he's not looking hard enough if he can't find some great, well-run races for much less.  Many smaller, less expensive races that I do are FAR better in amenities than the bigger races,  There is a cost to being big, so a 'cheap' race with 2,000+ athletes would definitely worry me.  But a cheap race with 200 athletes would not set off any immediate alarms as to the potential quality.

We triathletes are a lucky lot. We have the time and the resources to enjoy a sport that is time consuming and can be very expensive. I take this opportunity to reflect on my good fortune.
