Age Group: 178/413
Overall: 413/5878
Performance: Good
Course: This is one of my favorite courses. First 8km is through 'rough' working class Hamilton. Next 10km is a mix of though nicer blue collar homes, bridges, and smelters. The next 10km is through rolling (hilly) streets of affluent Burlington. The final 2-3km are a simple straight run into the coloseum.
Keeping cool Good Drinking Just right

Tough course! I did it this year, too, and completely blew up just a little before The Hill. Great job, though. Congrats!
