This was my first TRI last year 2012. It is a great race. Unfortunatly the swim was canceled due to INCREDABLY high surf. They could not get kayaks out or set the bouys. The tri was converted to a run bike run at the last minute. We started with a 1 mile run on the beach and the the bike course then a 3.2 mile run at the end. Food and beer ant the end was great also. I am doing it again this year. I only wished it did not conflict with the Pumpkinman. Next year I will have to make a choice between the two.
