This race is from the same people who do the LA Tri Series. They know what they’re doing… The event is well organized and has a great venue. The lake swim is a nice change from the cold Pacific Ocean. Winds can sometimes be a factor up in that area, so be prepared on the bike. The run is challenging but not too tough. The post race always has a nice vibe as a lot of people stick around for raffle and prizes. It’s a good (close to) end of season event.
