About the Race

1/4 mile swim in a clean lake private beach. 2 loops for the bike for 17.2 miles. Out and back 5k run.

Race Review

Typical local race put on by DQ Events.  By that, I mean that it’s a bare bones, low-key, casual kind of triathlon.  The transition stretched all the way from the beach to the bike out, so it was kind of  cool seeing it all sprawled out along the water. First come, first serve, so I was able to grab a spot semi close to the bike-out before I even headed to registration.  Body marking by magic marker. I was satisfied by the amount of porta potties there.

 

Swim was crowded as there were only a few waves. It was wetsuit legal.  Buoys on the right shoulder. Start in the water.  Course was an out-and-back, but there was a bend in the swim you need to be aware of. I was not, and ended up swimming longer distance and losing precious time.

Bike was 2 laps and relatively flat.  It was a rough ride as the roads were mottled with pot holes and other hazards.

Run was an out-and-back, and seemed to go on forever! My watch registered a much longer distance than a 5k.

Post-race party consisted of some cookies and hoagies. There were giveaways during the awards ceremony so hang on to those bibs.

About Us

This site is a collection of race reviews, ride reports, and musings on life. It focuses on my love of the outdoors, primarily triathlon, cycling, and running, with some training, traveling, and race-cations thrown in.  I race year round, and almost every week in the warmer months.

I hope these race reviews and reports serve as a resource to athletes everywhere about which races to add to your bucket list and which ones to just plain avoid altogether.
