Well, I didn’t take the finish line down this weekend. I did knock out my sprint distance PR by several seconds. And I found my new favorite sprint triathlon! There’s a reason why TJ Tollakson and Iowa Momentum magazine name it their top sprint: Copper Creek Triathlon is a real class act.
It is very well organized, including a monitored swim preview on Saturday, a very clearly communicated race schedule, and really decent swag! Not to mention there is a bar patio that overlooks the run course for the spectators. The course is very good and the transition and finish line areas are well laid out. I can’t believe I haven’t raced it before, but I’m sure I’ll be back.
