Are any DC Tri people doing this year's NJ State Tri?, or does anyone have an experience with it in past years? My General Smallwood plans were shot to hell by having to travel out of DC that weekend, and I'm looking at replacement races in July.
Plus, the NJ State Tri is in my hometown, which makes things very convenient...
You should do the Colonial Beach Triathlon which is a week after Gen. Smallwood. Sprint is on Sat. (7/14) and Oly is Sun. (7/15) which I am doing. Check it under Set up Events under the VTS races.
I'm in again for the NJ State Tri Oly. Raced it multiple years and it is well run and a fast bike course. Although in most years it is a non-wetsuit swim and a hot run.
I did it 2 years ago. Good race, well run, and HOT. It was pretty flat overall; after hearing reviews from this weekend's bric-nic I kinda wish I'd registered for this one instead of Smallwood and it's "challenging hills" on the run course :-)
I did it with bronchitis and a fever so I don't remember much. I'll never do that again.
