I'm thinking of signing up for a fun sprint tri. Let me know if anyone is interested in teaming/training with me. The race looks like it is a lot of fun and ranked high within women's races. (The Iron Girl is sold out so this is my back up plan.)

Just a word of warning - Although this is a really pretty course and there is good race support, etc., they have had to cancel the swim two years in a row because of levels of bacteria in the water. If you sign up, be prepared for a du.

Ahh, very good to know. It looks like a great race but i want to find others to do it with and considering the news about the water...I'm better off to look into another race. Thank you for the insight!

Try the Celebration Sprint with Columbia Tri Assoc - end of June. Not a woman's only race, but Vig always puts on a good challenging race.

It's a great race... and yes, the swim has been canceled the past two years resulting in a du, but water quality was a result of bad summer storms prior to race... not just 'bad water'... same swim area as the Philly triathlon and SheRox (another good sprint, but I prefer Philly Women's)... I have worked this race the past two years and raced it for multiple years prior.
