Review of Orange County International Triathlon by Lauren Fisher

Posted by: on June, 5 2012

Pros: I really liked the course, and was glad to find some new running trails in South Orange. There were so many awesome volunteers along the way. I loved the swim in Mission Viejo lake. The water was plenty warm, and I didn’t wear a wetsuit. I like the lake location for the finish too.

Cons: This race is slightly more expensive than most races. They really need to consider adding finishers medals. The tech t-shirt we got was so ugly. I like the painting, but it looks like they accidentally printed the back of the shirt onto the front. They need a better website. The course maps on the website were really bad. You couldn’t see the course, zoom in, etc. With all the technology out there gmap-pedometer, etc., this seems like an easy fiz.
