Good and challenging sprint race. Some disorganization at the beginning creating a late start on a hot day. Should consider swim start by projected time. Also a little more than expected traffic on the bike. No hydration of run for almost 2 miles. Interesting to see a couple elite and almost pro guys out there...I guess these guys really need the $.

Terrific course for first time triathlon

Nice job. Small triathlon which makes it awesome for someone new to the sport. Very challenging bike course though due to rolling hills. Had a great time. Organization had a small problem with chip timing but hoping to see final results soon.

Nice race, more buoys

Nice race close to home. Not sanctioned, but that keeps the price down. My only complaint is more buoys are needed. It is hard to see the first turn due to the sun. Another buoy or two on the return would also be helpful.
