I ran the give it a tri on Aug 23rd (was not in your calendar)
This would have been my first time doing a TRI....I was a bit nervous and I was told it was wet suit mandatory. The day was dark and gloomy and a bit cold....was told they had to cancel the swim because the lake was too cold :( so they changed the event to a dualathon...not what I wanted to do :(
The start was a run 2K then a 10K bike and then a 2.7K run. I was close to playing in my age group (if I didnt have a flat tire :()
I wish they would give everyone medals or something...I feel you should go home with some kind of cool medal as its an amazing sport....I will give it a TRI next year for sure!! Hope we dont have a poopie summer like this year!
- Scenic, beautiful, clearly-marked course
- Very organized and smooth-running
- Helpful people (especially for first-timers!)
- COLD water
- Below-average photography
- Below-average race kit
Good for a first-timer but not one I'd stick with long-term.
I have done this rave a few times, very cool idea and venue, like a private race so don't expect hordes of cheering spectators! It's alot of out and back on the run and bike and the swim can be cold, watch out..but how many beach starts have nude sunbathers 150 yards away??
