  • Overall course based on my ability: Just right

  • Comments: I have NO complaints about the event itself. It was extremely well-organized and one of the most beautiful courses I have ever competed on. The swim and run even made the bike suffering worth it. My issues on the bike were entirely my fault, for being unclear about weather conditions and not preparing for their effect on my body. I would highly recommend this race. But a few caveats about logistics--Maple Valley is a rural area that's a newly developing outer suburb of Seattle, and doesn't have any hotels, nor do several nearby communities. (There are plenty of places to eat, though.) There may well be some Air B and B type rentals, but Mom doesn't do those. There is no race-day on-site parking. Athletes can either be dropped off at a lot about 3/4 mile from the start or, along with spectators, park at off-site lots (one about 2-3 miles away and one maybe 8 miles away) and take.a shuttle. Waits for the return shuttle may be long, but spectators without bikes can jump the queue. Parking
