    Pros:
    – great for first time triathletes. Run was flat with clear signs. Bike path was flat, all straight except one U-turn, but short a couple of miles. Swimming was at FVHS outdoor swimming pool, which is great for those that don’t want to do open water (no need for wet suit, no crazy currents)
    – no special triathlon fee. I forgot what it’s called but most require a special membership fee that cost about $50 for a day, or more for the year)
    – very affordable for a triathlon (I paid $65.84)
    – included a finisher’s medal, canvas bag from their sponsor, small water bottle, cotton unisex tshirt, a packet of energy powder and gel
    – although not a closed course, the volunteers helped press the crosswalk button, directed traffic and occasionally I saw vehicles pacing runners to ensure safety
    – lots of muffins, fruit, water, etc. at the finish line (some were homemade too)
    – bib pick up was smooth, easy, not crowded, etc.

    Cons:
    – the finisher’s medal completely different from what they said it would be, which was a huge disappointment because I had been waiting for over a year to earn the medal. I was told it’d be similar to last year’s medal (which had their logo & name of the race branded into a round piece of wood and wrapped in recycled bicycle chain). Instead, they gave out a cheap round medal with a bubble sticker on top. =(

    Overall: small production, not super fancy, but went smoothly and is good practice for future, tougher triathlons
