This is a great event to participate in, the bike route and run route were flat and very forgiving. The swim was good (1/2 mi),the jetty helps block the incoming swells, a lot of life guards, course markings and people to guide you through the route. The food at the end was awesome also, warm breakfast burritos, warm french toast twists and enough bathrooms near the transition area. Great event for any first timers, relays teams, or mini-sprint participants! Just get there early to get parking in the neighborhood and just ride your bike to the event.
Fun race! Easy swim because of the lack of waves. Wish there was only one loop on the bike, but it was a good 2 loop track. Run was through the shopping area, which made for more turns. Also, I wish they would have told people to park outside the parking structure, so they could leave before the race. Overall A rating. I will do it next year.
This is a great event for beginners and a good way for experienced athletes to stay sharp. This was my very first triathlon and it had me hooked. Very well planned and executed.
