Event comments:

Race report over a year late - This race was awesome on many levels. Mostly because I got to meet many fellow Asphalt Junkies from a Beginner Triathlete Mentor group from 2012. My performance was as good as could be expected given my training level. I only missed my stretch goal time by 3 minutes. I would do this race again if I lived closer.

This race report is for the July 2018 race. I live in Redding California which was on fire during the race. Doing a race report wasn't exactly a priority when we got home. 

The race itself was awesome, and I would do it again if I lived closer. My wife and I traveled from California specifically to meet with friends that we met through the Beginner Triathlon Website. It was a great experience.




I was heartbroken to hear that a racer was hit while on the bike and did not survive during the 2019 race.
