Hey, training for my first half Ironman (did 2 sprints last summer) and registered for this race a couple of months ago. Anyone else planning on doing it or have done it in past years and could spare a few tips? Thanks! And happy new year!

I've done Ohio once, in 2018, but I plan to go back again tis year.  It's pretty soldi race but the logistics can make some people nervous.  Having two separate transition areas causes some people to get nervous or extra excited.  The reality is that it is no different than having one T area, it just requires little different mindset.

The bike is a fast one with most of the hills coming closer to the end, but they're not bad.  THE run isa little more challenging than the bike, IMO, but it's still a great course.

Also, if you're not from the area, they're not many places to stay close to the venue.  Delaware doesn't have a lot of name brand hotels so plan about 20-30 minutes drive on race morning.

Much appreciated for the tips and info! I’m coming down from Canada and fortunately for me I was able to book a hotel in Delaware before they all booked up. Once I registered for the race a couple of months ago I figured I’d jump on the hotel vacancies.
Thanks again!
