  • Comments: Fourth year in a row I have done this race, but first 3 were duathlon - triathlon is much more competitive! Much prefer starting in first wave. Course was very cluttered by the time I hit the bike and run. Band and beer garden post-race. Pizza from Pizza Port. Just grabbed some free FRS and water. This is a good local race. Just wish they would have 5 splits - never have tho. Not sure they ever will.

  • Comments: The surf gods were very kind this year. I am greatful because I made a quik recovery from the crash. I burned nearly 1500 calories. I improved my time by approximately 7 minutes over last year.

  • Comments: As mentioned the start of the waves was confusing, at least for me. All good besides that. The Koz events are professional.

  • Comments: Although i think i could of done better, i'm proud of my time. My goal was 1:10:00 beat it by 3 minutes. This was my first race, I've done centuries and other run's way more unorganized. I had a good experience with KOZ ent. Only thing was the transition area was very crowded. Other than that, I didnt run into any issues. oh, parking was a PITA but that's not their fault ;)

  • Comments: I have no official time, but the race organizers were kind enough to email my splits for my own info. 12:35 swim, 34:09 bike (probably not far off from what I should have been able to do, including T1 and T2) and 27:31 run, for 1:14:15.

  • Comments: It was a well organized event,so it gets a 4. They could have had individual water bottles instead of small dixie cups. I'm not a drinker so the beer garden didn't do much for me, nor did pizza at 9:30-10 a.m. The oranges were great though and the volunteers were plentiful.

  • Comments: Koz puts on great races at an affordible price! Would like to see the transition segments broken out. I think I ran over 4 mats from when I got out of the water until I got into T1.

  • Comments: I had a good time at this race. This was my first pay triathlon & my second one overall. I do like the SD tri club races a little better because they are more laid back.

  • Comments: Being my first, it was the best so far for me. I think I did good for my first one and not having anyone there couching or walking me through. Placed 54 of 110 in age group. 351 of over 1000 overall.

  • Comments: I approached this as a fun training day with a cool BTer. (good thing because this was my worst swim, worst bike and well my run is always bad) of all my races so far )I hadn't trained for it and I haven't run in ages. I knew I wasn't going to set any land speed records so I truely was just out to have a good time and finish. I didn't push myself on the run at all. I wasn't even out of breath or anything when I finished. The car people came while I was on the course and extremely nice triathlete gallantly changed my tire for me. I was eternally grateful. Then I ahd to take the rental back and trade it is.
