Doing Ironman Texas you just never know what you’ll get. We’ve had an unusually cool spring and training has been great. BUT it warmed up quickly this year on the bike and run course. It’s my favorite run course with so much support, but doing an Ironman is always a long tough day!

This year it was rainy but the course is great! Beautiful scenery and fun sections with music and entertainment. Get with a pace group as it will for sure lead you to a PR. Train for hills there are steep quick hills that will burn up those thighs

Wow! This course was tough as hell! The water was in the 50s, the bike had over 3200 feet of climbing and the run had over 2000 feet of climbing. The views were fantastic but the bike course was very difficult. It was however, a great experience and a race I’ll always remember.

While this course does sell itself as a “downhill” be prepared to climb! The last 4 miles to the finish line is all uphill. I also didn’t find the views to be that great during the race. There are a few areas of beautiful views of the mountains but the majority of the race is run thru industrial areas and a running trail. The view at the finish line of the water is beautiful, and the beer garden is a fun zone!

Running in Texas you never know what you’re going to get. This year it was raining and cold in April! The trails were muddy and slick but it’s always a great time running at Brazos Bend. Be prepare for anything when you race in Texas.

Running a hundred miles is hard, but if you are doing your first ultra race this is the course for you. The support from the member of the TROT team are great and the other runners are just as amazing. The course was a tad muddy due to rain but still nice to run on. Yes the course is mostly flat with some false flats and rocks. The trails are nicely covered and I did spot an alligator!

This is my second time going to Ironman Maryland. The first time I was there the race was cancelled, thus I wanted to go back and try this course. The town is lovely and the people are warm and welcoming. The swim had jelly fish, and yes I got stung during the race. The bike was super windy but the roads are nice a smooth. The run was not my favorite, since it was very quiet in the back. However, overall a fantastic day and the day was hot and humid but lovely!

This was a beautiful course. I thoroughly enjoyed the organization and the events leading up to race day. This is my second favorite race I’ve done. The support is like non other and full of energy. The only portion I don’t care for is the store. It is insane and not the spirit of Lululemon

I am not sure I would do this 5k again. The start line was not organized. I was in Corral A but it was not patrolled thus it caused traffic jams. Runners with dogs and strollers make for lots of moving around. Weather was great ! Hopefully will get more organized in years to come.

I have run several marathons and ultra races, and Big Sur ranks at the top. The scenery is epic and the weather is perfect. I will continue to participate in the race as long as I can get in. Get with a pace group as I honestly had the best time with the 3:45 pacer!

I’ve done this race in prior years but still find it to be a fun and challenging course. The swim is normally wetsuit legal but can be choppy at times. The bike is very windy but a nice flat out and back. The run is hot! It’s Texas! The great thing is this is an easy spectator friendly course. I would do this race again.

This sprint tri is one of my favorite races and I’ve done several years in a row. They have the best swag I’ve ever received from any race I’ve every done. The course is a great difficulty level and fun for new triathletes and seasoned vets. I’ll return again next year!

I’ve done this 70.3 several years in a row and always learn something new. Some years the swim is choppy. Some years its like glass. Some years the wind on the bike is crazy but there is always wind on the bike! The is hot and tough but since it’s close to home most of my team is either racing or there cheering! This makes this race fun and one I’ll do again. If its your first 70.3 I would highly recommend it. The course is flat!

This has been a bucket list race and it was so much fun. Realize 1) its an expensive weekend at Disney World 2) you’re not going to PR 3) you’re getting up super early. We had to board the bus to take us to race start at 3am! They do this race prior to the park being open thus the early start. Honestly you don’t run much in the park… most of the run is done on the grounds of the park and hotels near by. you only run in the park for less than 1 mile when you go thru the castle. That was disappointing! Not sure I’d go back but I did enjoy while I was there.

This 70.3 was without a doubt one of the hardest races I’ve ever done. The bike course was not only hilly but the road were crap! Also at the bottom of a hill would some times be a cattle guard. Now imagine go over that at 30 + mph on a bike! The run was equally difficult. I don’t think the Toughman race company still has a race in New Mexico and I understand why. I wouldn’t go back to that race. It was also very unorganized. However loved New Mexico!

This race has amazing community support and people lined along the street almost the full course. It can be warm, but this is know to be a fast course. Mostly flat but does end with a false flat climb to the finish line.
