This was the first time that I participated in the Sylvan Lake Triathlon. I was on a team and I completed the running leg. Although the race atmosphere met my expectations, the race course did not. Firstly, to do an out and back four times is mentally challenging. Although it is nice for spectators, it is not great for the runner. As well, there was a lack of aid stations on the run. The weather was quite warm and at the turnaround point there REALLY should have been another aid station. It was so hot at that point on the run more water was needed to stay hydrated.

It seems like this an expensive race.

The best part of the day was having Steve King there. Thank you for that!

This was my fifth race in Sylvan Lake and by far this one has continually fell on my favorites list. For the 90km bike race there was only 2 aid stations which is not effeciant in my books. 5 years ago there was 4 aid stations so what happened. Also, for all of the turns on the bike course there should have been marshals at the major intersections. There used to be marshals at every intersection which is 5 or 6. This used to be the case years ago but not anymore. Can't understand how the race fee goes up yet there lacks the organization that would justify a safe race particularly for newbies.
