(Editor) Submitted by Runnerdude: I’ve done this race a few times. I would suggest getting there early to avoid traffic. There is only one way into the event and cars start to back up off the freeway. Lake swim which I like, and both the bike and run are a bit hilly. And depending on the weather, you may have some wind. It was a well organized event and I enjoyed hanging out after it was done. Fun race but don’t expect a PR.
