  • Comments: I really enjoyed this race. It's a good deal longer than most sprint triathlons but not quite as long as an oly which made it a perfect length for me. The courses were scenic and well organized and volunteers were friendly, knowledgable, and helpful. I had a great time!

  • Comments: It was nice to finally put together a complete race in which I felt good about my swim, bike, and run. I improved my time in this year's race but more than 10 minutes over last year's race. I still have plenty of room for more improvement, but I seem to be heading in the right direction.

  • Comments: Good race. People are friendly, its well organized. Need perhaps more volume on speakers at start. was hard to hear the countdown to the waves starting. Several in wave in front of me missed their starting time.

  • Comments: The post race activities are actually pretty good, but it's very crowded. The long lines are discouraging and that's why I gave it an Average. Also, the loud band competed with the loudspeakers which made it difficult to talk to friends while standing around a lot of the area outside transition.

  • Comments: On the bright side, I improved my overall time from last year by about 2 minutes. But I was hoping for something more. I guess should just be happy that I'm competing. :-)

  • Comments: I like this race. Did it last year as a fluke and talked my pal into doing it with me this year. Will be back next year, earlier so I actually get a place to rack my bike.

  • Comments: I actually had great time for my first triathlon (despite the cold, and rain, and hail, and blah, blah, blah)...! Overall, it was a total blast. I'm hooked and ready to go at again.

  • Comments: Considering weather conditions, there were enough volunteers, and they were cheerful and supportive. Race was well organized and went off on time and I had no issues with anything other than unusually bad weather. Swimming was what I actually prepared for the most, and felt would be my best portion, so was a little disappointed to have had an issue.

  • Comments: This was my first Triathlon in 23 years; this event which I was not truly ready for was to establish a Baseline from which to build upon. My goal before the race was to finish the race and not give up, to the guys in the Clydesdale category, thanks for the encouragement. You guys rock!!!! Semper fi

  • Comments: I had a blast. Met lots of nice people (but 1 jerk). I hope everyone has such a positive experience on their first Triathlon. I will be coming back next year to compete against myself and others in age group vs. clydes. Post race was fun, food was good, prizes were great. THANK YOU TEAM HERBALIFE FOR GETTING ME THERE! AND TO MY WONDERFUL WIFE AND KIDS FOR CHEERING ME ON!!!

  • Comments: Good race. Started on time. Did appear that there were fewer volunteers than last year. Parking was ok, and there did seem to be enough racks this year.

  • Comments: First Triathlon - was just right difficulty for me. Well organized, well staffed. Easy to navigate. Lots of good sponsors. Post-race activities were fun and well attended. Starts were about 5 mins late, which I consider to be 'on-time' One of my club colleagues had a mix-up with her timing chip, so had 2 numbers. She was understandably perturbed about that, but seemed to all work out in the end. Fun race. Not much to compare it to, so give it a '5'. Will do again.

  • Comments: This was a really fun race despite the start (getting parked and from car) difficulties. I heard that the reservoir had more water than anticipated and took out a lot of the parking. It would be nice if they enlarged the transition area or put the pros and elites somewhere else. Hell they have their own wave so it's not like having their transition area closer to the water is going to affect anyone not in that group. Also, they ran out of beer. I know should not matter but I was really looking forward to that beer!

  • Comments: Great venue, Great swag. If you don't get there early parking gets tough and the transition area gets full. I liked the bike entrance better than the Reservoir Tri set up. I only stayed around long enough to eat a little and get results. The band and free beer was a nice touch

  • Comments: This is a fun race. Good course, well organized. However, I think they allow too many entrants. 800 or so for the area is too much. There is not enough parking or racks for that many athletes. Overall, I like this race, but they need to think about either not as many athletes, or shuttles from some off-site parking.

  • Comments: USA productions was great, but the check in and the racking seemed too crowded. I think the race needed to be limited to 500 or so

  • Comments: This is a fun race. I really enjoy the positive overall attitude of the triathlon events. This event seemed to be very well organized. There were plenty of aid stations, and information given out. I would encourage all to pick up their packet the day before to avoid the longish line for day off pickup.

  • Comments: This was a good race for me. Mentally I was not there and my body was a bit sore, but I would up exceeding my goal of 2:15. Plus Macca (pic below) and Lieto were there! How often can you race a sprint with the pros!
