  • Comments: I really liked this race alot. My favorite tri this year. Its a course thats challenging enough for experienced folks and short enough for newbies. It sells out pretty early so plan it well in advance. Positives o Met Will (Memphis) from BT before the race and talked a bit. Didn't find him after race but he had a good time. o Well marked swim course o Challenging bike, not the standard flat out and back we get so much of down here o Rainy run o 25 massage therapist (only waited 5 minutes and got a 15 minute massage) o Friendly volunteers and lots of spectators o Fun race party, live band, lots of folks o Tons of Door prizes, including a Felt bike (I didn't win again) o Split awards o 5 minutes between swim waves spread out the bikes nicely combined with the hills cut out the pelotons o Erica Polllack (elite racer who founded this race with her husband) as race MC, she is a blast Negatives o Automobile traffic on bike got bad as the raced progressed.
