Boulder 70.3 in Boulder, CO


Race Type: Triathlon
Distance: 70.3 (Half-Ironman)
Entry Fee: $275
Overall Rating:

Why they rated as such:

The bike course was awesome. Beautiful scenery without punishing hills to climb. However, due to the heavy rain in 2015 the run course was not ideal. This year was the first year to have the run limited to the reservoir park, and was mostly uneven running terrain. I am planning on participating in the race in 2016 with hopes that the running course is in better condition. Great atmosphere and well supported.

Did travel impact their race?
