We were originally scheduled to do this race last year, December 2017. We were standing on the beach, ready to go, when they announced it was now a duathlon due to weather concerns. We got our shoes and socks on, and were ready for the run. Then they announced the entire event was completely canceled. Very disappointing, but understand the safety reasons for doing so. We are going to try it again this year.
