  • Overall course based on my ability: Just right

  • Comments: I keep coming back to this race because it's a great venue and they run a fairly tight ship. For a completely volunteer organization trying to do everything bare bones, it's really well run. They start right on time and do a nice job. I'd like to see more post-race stuff and maybe a better goodie bag, but all the proceeds go to charity and it's a small race so it's hard to get big sponsors. I don't like the switch in directions. I know they want all the bathrooms and showers and changing rooms for the post race area, but having ONE bathroom at the start for 200 people seems like a bad plan. AND having to do the transpo BEFORE the race meant that we had to get there a LOT earlier than previous years. And you know I like my sleep! Finally, I didn't like the sighting going in this direction. The "finish" end of the lake curves around to the right so it's hard to judge how close you are getting and the first buoy is a very late show. When we go the other way you can see that first
