Hey it’s a Camp Pendleton race so you know it’s going to be well run and on time! Pre Race was pretty uneventful. It’s a rather small race so there aren’t too many vendors or activity. But they do their best to keep it entertaining. The run is kind of ugly. Behind barracks and up some dirt hill and back to the transition area. The dirt hill was especially difficult in the 2011 race because it was HOT! The bike course is nice. An out and back mostly flat. Some hills to keep it interesting. Then back to the run. I like the duathlon format but this race is basically just okay.
