Race Description

400M Pool Swim, 10 mile Bike, and 4K Run. Includes breakfast with iced coffee, mimosas and beer (for age frogs), juice (for tadpoles), and unique frog triathlon tops and awards.. What does the name mean? Dam ’09: Start/Finish in in Alamo Heights (city zip – ’09ers) and the bike course is along the Dam into Olmos Park.. so, DAM ’09 is the name.

I wouldn’t do it again

I was very disappointed in the race compared to the amount of money I paid. The swim wasn’t organized at all, it seemed like it would be based on time and more of an announcement would have been made prior to the swim. I didn’t like that at the finish you had to get your own water. I figured water could have been set out. The food that was provided for the money wasn’t much. The email said “breakfast” which i assumed would be more than a sausage wrap, orange slice and half a banana.

Well organized, competitive, and fun. I suggest that the awards be upgrade to reflect the achievements of the athletes. Safety became an issue when participants were confronted with trucks and cars on the same course.

Wonderful Volunteers!

This is my second Triathlon and I enjoyed myself so much I am happy to keep training and improving my time to try it again. I thought all the volunteers and participants were positive, friendly and encouraging. I noticed that for the second half of the run it was mostly in the shade as the temperature was rising and that was appreciated.

This was my first triathlon. I appreciate everyone that was out there because they all encouraged me to keep going. I finished last but I finished and next year I have a goal to beat.

I have done this event 15+ times. The Dam 09 is a damn fine event. Always has been. The venue is super, the support is great, and Air Force volunteers are especially helpful. Roger and Lisa never fail to put on a great event! Looking forward to at least 10 more. (I'm 78.) .
