This is a fun triathlon with lots of positive energy from participants and organizers. The bike course could be better designed, as it is a 4x loop, but it does allow the whole bike ride to be free of vehicles. Timing of events before the race is a bit off, too.
This was my 4th sprint triathlon. By now I was comfortable with transition areas and what to expect. It was well organized but the only thing I didn't care for was the way biking distances were set up. 2x 6 mile loops for the sprint or 4x for the Olympic.
I only did the sprint this year as I didn't anticipate time enough to prepare for the intermediate. Glad I made that choice.
The Rochester Triathlon is put on by the Rochester Triathlete's. It is very well organized. Many little details go into making it a must do triathlon in Rochester. They gave medals to first time triathlete's (over 50 of them). They had Aquabike racers start with the triathlete's.
Absolutely awesome race. I've done this race for the past 6 years. One of my favorites. Update the website to show that you do give awards for Aquabike/Aquathon's . You give awards which is great, but your award section on your landing page does not indicate so.
