I have been doing this triathlon for the past 3 years. This year will be my 4th year, and I really enjoy it. My favorite part of the race is the swimming part. I like having my own lane to swim in. Overall, this Triathlon is a very well planned and organized. I have never had any problems. They changed it this year to have men and a relay.. so I hope having them two in the mix won't be a problem or change my mind! We will see!
