We drove down from St. Louis, MO - this was my wife's first race, I've been doing tri for years. Immediately we were greeted by the RD at packet pickup, extremely friendly, recommending places to go and tour, where to eat.
This was my first triathlon. It was fabulous! I will only do pools triathlons. No open water for me. The biking and running courses were hilly and challenging, just the way I like them. Weather was awesome. This was my first event involving swimming. I finally relaxed the last 200 meters.
The JC Triathlon was very well planned and organized. The weather on race day was great! Ellis Porter Riverside Pool/Park is an excellent location for the event. The volunteers and staff exceeded all expectations. The team spirit and support from the other athletes and volunteers was great!
