Completed the Lake T on June 19th. My second Tri with an improved time over the first. I'm planning on #3 on July 18th. Very well run and attended event.

Hi! I am new to triathlon and am thinking of entering the July 18th race. Do you know approximately how much time I might need to get set up? I would have to go right after work and need to coordinate leaving early, if necessary. Thanks!

you really don't need a lot of extra time, but I'd try to get there by 5:15pm at the latest (5pm would be better),
as the race goes off at 6:15 with the women's wave usually being first

it's easy to get to right off of Rt 2 and there is parking across the street in a little lot-you'll see people walking
their bikes over to registration when you park. it's also pretty hot so many people don't do a 'warm up' for the run
and usually and everything goes pretty quickly at registration-i was through it in about 10 minutes last year and
walked over where you pick up the timing chip about 30 feet away which only took 2 minutes or so

setting up your transition area will take the longest-about 5-10 minutes, and is one big open area with
plenty of room ( and since it's your first, there is no need to try to get the coveted spots right out of the water
heading out of the transition area)-most people will get their wetsuit on and cool off with a short warm up swim
which I would strongly recommend-just to get used to swimming with the wetsuit and remember to control your
breathing, keeping it nice and easy on your first Tri

also, try to think the race through in it's entirety ahead of time and make sure your bag has everything you need
for the race-bike shoes, helmet, socks, run shoes, belt for race number etc

there are race reports from this series in the 'Race Reports' section of Beginner Triathlete which you could read
to get an idea of the specifics of this course-it's low key and a lot of fun

I may see you there!

Thanks Dale! I'll probably see you there. I'm signing up for the 1 mile swim challenge this Saturday, too.

I found a sprint, the Lake Las Vegas Triathlon, that was happening four months down the road and signed myself up; much to the surprise of friends and family.

I have Bontrager Race Lite wheels. I was looking into renting Zipp 303's or 404's for race day for Ironman Lake Placid. What time will I save?

I am running Boston in April and Ironman Lake Placid is in July. I have been told that it is ambitious to think about doing an IM so close to a marathon due to the recovery time. Any suggestions?

The first time I ventured into the deep murky green lake and could not see the bottom my muscles tensed and my imagined fears surfaced. What exactly lies beneath?

Both the Lake Triathlon Shoe CX210TRI and the Lake Road Shoe CX225 offer distinct advantages. I tested both shoes and found them to be extremely comfortable, good looking and durable.

A description of my experiences during my first triathlon. It was a great experience. I’m in better shape than I’ve ever been.

If you are calm while everyone around you is losing it, you probably don’t know what the hell is going on.
