Review of Los Alamitos Race on the Base Reverse Triathlon by Suzanne Dieriex

Posted by: on April, 18 2012

Great race, something for all ages! They have several kids try divisions for the young-uns, as well as allowing kids over 13 to race the full triathlon. This year (2012) there were 2 waves, starting about 45 minutes apart, this really allowed things to spread out and meant the pool was quite empty when I hit it, compared to last year, when I had to swim around a ton of people. The run is now properly advertised as 3.7 miles, due to course changes because of construction. Post race lunch from Johnny Rebs and expo were great additions that had been missing in previous years races.
