Excellent event for someone interested in a first triathlon, especially if they are afraid of the swim... you can rest every 25m if you need. Neither the bike nor the run are technical with plenty of space to go wide open. Roads are decent, especially since they are coming off a winter of abuse. Indoor transitions are nice but make sure you bring warm clothes since it's spring in WI. 2017 will be my third time and it's a nice way to kick off the tri season!
