"I love this race so much that I've completed it the last 4 years in a row!! The course if flat and fast!

The water can be a bit choppy at the first turn to head back toward the ferry boat, but still a great overall swim! The bike WILL be windy, so plan accordingly. The run can be super hot....salt, salt, salt!! "
