The was my first reverse Tri. For the most part, it was well organized, easy packet pick up, and clearly marked transition area. Loved the run course, not flat, but not too challenging. Bike course was decent, didn’t love all the turns and I was a bit confused on where to go when you finished the second loop. There were people on their first loop turning into the area where you were supposed to go when you finished the second loop to go to transition location. There was a person telling you where to go, but you were on top of him before you got the information. So, slowing down before the hill ascent was a bit frustrating, but minor. I would suggest to have signage like they have when they split a half and full marathon. This way you can see on your first lap around where you turn when you complete your second lap. Overall, it was a great experience!
