Subject: RE: Lake in the Hills Triathlon : Official Thread
I was just going to start this exact same thread. This will be my third year doing the LITH tri. Very well run race. The only thing that throws some people is the need to set up 2 transition areas. It's pretty simple; you ride to T2, get marked, drop your run gear and ride over to the lake. Set up T1 there. They provide a bag to deposit your wetsuit, goggles, etc., and it will magically be waiting for pick-up in T2 after the race.
The swim is a rectangle counterclockwise. Coming out of T1, there is a little hill so make sure you are in an easy gear to get clipped in. The bike course has a few rolling hilss but for the most part, flat. The run is uphill from about mile 2 to 2.5 then you come back down.
I posted a race report form last year and there are several others.
