Fix the swim

Something needs to be done to enforce seeding in the swim start. Swimmers that had no business being in the water in the first 100 were clogging up the lanes and those of us behind them had our swim times suffer. I do appreciate that this race gives even the most untrained athlete a chance to complete a triathlon, but it's unfair to those of us who race to compete.

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.

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.) .

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.

Great Intro to Sprint Triathlons

This was an amazing race if you're also looking to get started in this sport. I would highly recommend this even to new and returning triathletes!

Great Race for casual triathletes

Great Race ..very organized, great food and drink at finish line. It is a good race for the casual triathlete...the pool swim is not crowded with swimmers on top of you. I wish the bike course could be something other than loops or rough road, but I can appreciate the course layout to control the amount of security you need. Run course is good.

Review On:2021-08-25 07:48:23
Fun race with a couple of comments

The setting for the race is great with the Alamo Heights area being moderately hilly with plenty of trees. A couple of suggestions: (1) Double the number of port-a-potties (4 is not enough for 300 people). (2) Extend the length of the bike route to 12.5 mil and the run to 3.1 mi if possible. (3) There is a spot on the bike course on a corner where there is sand (and therefore very slippery on a turn). This should have been mentioned pre-race. Overall however, the tri was well organized and a lot of fun. I plan on participating next year.

Review On:2023-08-25 20:53:55
Fun and Fast

The pool swim was a lot smoother than I expected though people really didn't seem to seed themselves very well. The bike course was safe, well-marked, and surprisingly shaded, if it is a bit short. The run doesn't have a ton going for it but isn't that's why it's last anyways lol. Great community, great intro to triathlon, very kind organizers.

Great event in unusual circumstances

You gotta hand it to Roger and Lisa. This year has been crazy, and there was no clue whether the race would *actually* happen a week out from race day. Nonetheless, the race was extremely well organized under the new protocols, and everything was safe, fun, and smooth! I really enjoyed the course as well and would sign back up for this event in a heartbeat.
