SheTris Sprint Triathlon I’On Club by Amanda Hashem
The best thing(s) about the race:
• Venue/course was lovely, even with construction modifications, good bathrooms, excellent police and volunteer presence at intersections along the course
• Distances were achievable
• Friendly, Helpful, Motivating Volunteers everywhere!
What was less than ideal: Could the swim placards (1-2, 3-4, 5-6 etc) have swim times like that old chart you used to have and not just descriptions? (Ex: 5 = 5:00/200yd, 6 = 4:45/200yd etc and not just “I am an efficient freestyler” or “I am super fast and swam in college” or something along those lines) It’s hard to self-seed when times aren’t posted and you end up with folks in the wrong spot.
What I didn't expect: Love the cool towels and water trailer at the finish!
Race organization: Wonderfully organized, as always!
Fuel and aid stations: Did not use, but saw SAG bikes and water stations frequently!
Additional info: Love the material for this year’s tanks - more flowing and flexible than the old cotton tanks! Love the racer back style too!
Overall grade: 5 stars
