This course is special to many for so many reasons. What you should know about this race is that the swim may be a little long. The transition one is up a parking garage. The bike racks are on top of the parking garage, the bike has hills that if you’re not prepared will eat you alive. The heat, wind, and humidity in Wisconsin is real. There are hills on the run, not many places you’ll be alone though. This is a college town. If you’re a Chris Farley fan, know that he’s buried here. I personally would go by and check it out. The course is definally something to enjoy. There will be times on the bike course that you feel alone and annoyed with the looped lollipop course. But you can do it if you want. For first timers, I’d recommend this race, but only if you’re ready for some serious climbing and want to have a solid fun day.
Would I do this race? Yes.
