Review of Rancho Cucamonga Grape Stomp Triathlon by me tri

Posted by: on April, 3 2012

I generally don’t do “sprint” or reverse triathlons but had some friends doing this event. It was pretty well run and I didn’t have any problems with registration. The course is pretty simple with some elevation climbs being so close to the mountains. Nothing major but you can feel it when you’re heading North or South. It was my first reverse triathlon so the pool swim was new to me. It really was more like a duathlon and jump in the pool to cool off at the end. But it was a fun event. I think it would be great for those looking to break into triathlons but might be afraid of the swim.
