Hi Everyone.  I'm looking to sign up for the Aquabike as a training day for IMMT.  Two questions hopefully someone can answer:  For spectators, anyone know if there is a "boardwalk" from Bader field to the boardwalk?  I have two young children and I am just wondering how safe walking from the Swim/Bike transition area back to the hotel on the boardwalk is.  

Lastly, is the stretch of beach there classic Jersey shore beach?  Meaning you can set up a towel and umbrella and have a nice day at the beach?  If so, I'm planning to stay an extra day with the family.  

Thanks.




I am doing the AB too as a warm up for IMMT. Bader Field is not walking distance from AC so they will have to drive. No idea what the road closure situation is going to be like near the parking areas to get people in and out so I am taking the car and told my wife I will call her when I am done and meet her at the beach (she is going to drive with my family to the beach and spend the day there)

2nd question- Yes you can. I have not been on that specific beach before but you can put down a towel and be there all day. In NJ, most beaches make you purchase a Day Pass unless you are a local so have the family bring some cash just in case. Depending on the town, it can be anywhere from $2-$6 a person for the day from what I remember.

If you are doing the AB, do you have any idea where we cross the finish line at? Are we done once we cross into T2 or do we need to run a little bit somewhere to get our Finisher Medal and Pictures, food, etc??? Anyone know about this?

In addition to writing your race number on each upper arm, they also wrote your age on your calf. This allowed me to see who was passing me by in the bike section of this race.

The boat was being tossed around. Someone noted that there were whitecaps on the waves. Another guy said, “This is going to be challenging.” I began to wonder what he meant by 'challenging'.

Having three seasons under my belt I thought I knew what I was doing. That all changed with a few new challenges and a bunch of new friends.

We were all there once, a beginner. Time to take the challenge and help a beginner triathlete!

I was not an official; I simply observed the race and the officials doing their thing. Here is what I saw:

It’s a challenge to push yourself a little harder and a little further. Be proud of every workout that is accomplished and every step-even the baby ones-that you take on this course to the finishline.

The Boulder Peak bike course is legendary. It is, literally and named as such, one of the toughest bike legs in the country.
