Anyone doing this race?  It has an Olympic and Sprint distance.

Anyone done it in the past?  Or heard any feedback?  

It's a 2nd year race and Ironhead RP is involved, not sure of the extent, so I'm assuming it's a decent race.

I did the sprint last year. Bike course is pretty flat. You swim in the Brazos River. It was a good race. I'm going back this year.

I'll be there, haven't registered yet.  I did the sprint last year, the bike course is flat and fast!  If you do the Oly the run is VERY hilly or so I've heard!  You cross the historic pedestrian bridge across the Brazos to the finish line, very cool.

I did the Oly last year. The Oly run is indeed very hilly especially around the turn around.
During the swim it was very hard to navigate due to the out portion being into the sun. Wish I would have worn tinted goggles.

I'm doing Olympic again and looking forward to it.  Swim was good although the bouys were spaced a good ways apart, bike was flat and fast with a water hand-up, run was dam hilly!  Great race overall.  Stay at the Hilton for the best accommodations and the ability to roll out of bed and walk to the TA downstairs.

I did the Oly last year and will second what others have said about the run.  It is HILLY!  Run hills while training for this one!  I went with a buddy that told me the run would be flat through the park; he lied.  It is a well run race and one that I may do again this year.  Haven't decided yet...

I thought it was a great race.  Though it was like running in the Alps toward the middle.

I'll be there.  Working it and racing it.

I second the Hilton, I'll do anything for an extra 30 minutes of sleep!

I'm planning on it, but I can't decide if I want to do a sprint or Oly.
