This was my first (but won't be my last) 70.3. Wow, what an incredible experience. This race was impeccably organized with amazing volunteer support and great course. From the pre-race emails to the tough call to cancel the swim portion, everything was top notch.
This was my first 70.3 but I have done a number of sprint and olympic distance triathlons, my overall impression was that this is a good one to do for a beginner to this distance. The transition and race village were well organized in a big park along the Choptank River.
