This was my first Triathlon, I did the Give it a Try. Loved this race, enjoyed the time trial swim start (5 secs between swimmers), yes you had to dodge slower swimmers but no panic or kicking from a wave start. Course was simple and easy to follow. Would definately do it again. Great after race food (which is super important to me).
Welland is one of my favourites from the MSC series. The volunteers make it a standout. This year, the temperature with humidity for the 70.3 was 35C. The volunteers made the run possible.
The course itself is solid. The canal swim is easy - no trouble sighting and no waves. The ride is flat with long straight sections. There isn't much rough pavement either. The run is well shaded and also flat. Without the shade, this year would have been more difficult still.
Great race! Easy...safe...shallow swim if you are nervous like me about sharks...waves...jellyfish...lol Good first time option for a newbie, the run and bike are out, back, loops....could be improved. As always lots of excellent and generous post-race food offerings and spectator friendly since all athletes are coming and going in the vicinity.
