  • Comments: On race day, TriRock was very well organized. Lots of support, course was well-marked. Leading into it, though, I thought the organization was lacking. This was the first race where I didn't get an email the week before that concerned logistics, etc. Also, when I went to print my confirmation sheet, I wasn't in the system. At the expo, it took a lot of bouncing around to get what I needed to get that sorted out. I really am not a fan of the bike course, as it was way too crowded. There were multiple occasions where I would have been considered drafting, but only because the course was so narrow and so crowded that I could not pass within the required time. The entry fee is a bit on the pricey side (it is a Competitor Group race), but there are lots of amenities at the finish. In other words, you are really signing up for a party that has a race with it. For me, I'd rather do something a bit more low-key, especially considering how tight the bike course was. If you want something

  • Comments: Thinking about TriRock? I'm sure the music is not worth it, but the venue in Austin is excellent. I really loved that swim! This is an expensive race and I think it was probably a one time thing for me... unless I keep thinking about the great swim! Oh.. and there's the Oly I could try.

  • Comments: Great course. One tough hill on the bike course, but other than that a fast course. I should have done a lot better, but the heat and humidity was tough on a west Texan kid like myself and caused me to cramp. Other than the higher than normal heat and humidity it was a great race.

  • Comments: Excellent event, lots of freebies at the end, nice shirt, hat and finisher medals. Great crowd, great course. To race up and down Congress Street is really cool.

  • Comments: This was a very well-run race and great courses for all three events. Hats off to the race director and all of the wonderful volunteers. I can't wait to do this one again next year. The only thing I would change is the position of the volunteers telling cyclists whether to turn to the finish or continue straight. It was hard to react if you were already in the wrong lane. And, of course, I would eliminate the 25 MPH wind gusts :-)

  • Comments: Overall, I was pleased with my first triathlon experience. My goal was to finish under 2 hours and I did that fairly easily. Future goal would be to finish under 1.5 hours.

  • Comments: This was my 3rd TRI ever and my last one of the year. Jack and Adams continues to put on the best races I have been to. I couldn't stay for the post-race activities, but they always have lots of food and things to do. Thanks to all the volunteers! I will always make an attempt to race in this race. Maybe next year I'll move up to the Olympic distance!
