  • Comments: The volunteers and organizers were brilliant; the other women out on the course were very supportive and encouraging; the location is gorgeous; the lake is clean (except for the weeds but they don't count at pollution). It was a very pleasant experience, and I met a lot a really nice people.

  • Comments: As far as the course goes, this is the "mini-me" Savageman. It's challenging, but pales in comparison to the 70.0. But the race itself is awesome. The race is well run, organized, well stocked, and any other good thing you can think of. The post race food is also good. The pre-race handout was a pair of quite nice cycling gloves, which I used for both races. Pre-race goodies you can actually use are excellent in my book. I said it last year, and feel the same this year, is that my only MINOR quibble is the lack of medals. Finisher tees are nice (especially tech tees), but there's something I really like about a medal. I would also like to see the 30.0 finishers get a different shirt than the 70 (again, a MINOR quibble). All in all, I can't recommend this race enough, it's really one of the best I've done. Schedule permitting, I'll be back.

  • Comments: This is a great race with wonderful volunteers. If you are looking for a triathlon that is different from the norm - this is the race for you! Looking at the race as a whole this was my best performance ever. I never sacrificed one event for another and my overall time was a huge improvement from last year.

  • Comments: This is actually a pretty good race - I would have had more fun on the insanely hard run course, had I been in good shape. Everyone I talked to had a ton of fun, even though it was brutal. The area and the course are absolutely GORGEOUS, which helps when you're in pain. The run course is nearly all shaded, which was awesome. Plenty of water stops and volunteers cheering. Deep Creek Lake is very pretty and clean. I actually would love to go back next year and do another swim/run relay. Tons of rental houses that are SWEET - great place to do a long weekend.

  • Comments: The race was organized very well. Excellent volunteers, beautifully swept course. The best of the best certainly came out for this race. I don't say that to imply I am one of them, more that it was impressive to watch them perform so well on such a difficult course. And hey, I hung with them!!
