My first Tri and must have been theirs too

This was my first tri and I did the Olympic distance (i.e. 1.5k swim, 26mi bike, 10k run); or at least that’s how it was advertised to us as a USA Triathlon sanctioned event. I the swim leg was an open water swim with no wetsuit and I was clocked at sub-14 min. In you don’t know that’s 4 minutes faster in the water than Tokyo Olympians. Due to rain day before event, T1 and T2 were seperate which is inconvenient but organizers did the best they could with the situation. And we couldn’t deny the beautiful scenery and the weather was perfect! While this was the inaugural event with this Bolivar Live title and sponsor, it was renamed from a previous established legacy Tri so this wasn’t their first rodeo. The event organization was a bit of a cluster-F.

Poorly organized, bikers were on main road with other cars with no path demarcated. Parking on a random street. The finish was lackluster. Could have been a lemonade stand. Medals were made of wood, like a first grade craft project.

Racecation

There are always challenges to events, the stage rehearsals find some of these things, and the day of the show “BAM” something pops up no one expected. This was my 3rd Sprint Tri ever and for my level, I thought and had an OUTSTANDING experience. There was some shuffling of the transition area but the volunteers handled it flawlessly everything was where it was supposed to be a Great Job. I have this weekend penciled in on my 2022 calendar. You all put on a Great Event.

Fun Tri - Couple of hiccups and loads of fun.

This was my first tri. A couple of days before upto the day before the event there was so much rain, therefore, there was soggy grass and mud in T2. However, this issue was out of control for the event coordinators. I highly recommend this race because of the course layout (flat) and the leadership of the event coordinator. God willing and the creek don't rise I will be there next year in 22'.
