Summary:
Comments: Expensive city. We were very lucky finding a hotel (Lion???) that was on the course so close to the start. Very scenic course. Family friendly for hanging around or having your kids do IMKIDS. First IM. Absolutely BEAUTIFUL swim. I kept thinking I'm doing an ironman in SWITZERLAND!!!

Summary: Great swim, Great Bike, messy run
Comments: Accomodation close to the race hardly exists with most in large hotels which are costly.Beautiful old world city definitely worth a look but still a big city. Swim picture perfect and fairly easy to find clear water. Cycle are on the best road you will ever ride and a lot of fast fun, though there are two tough climbs and one super fast downhill (95km/h). Run is 4 laps and is a bit mind numbing. Race gets lost in the big city somewhat.

Summary: Perfect swiss style organization. Expensive city...
Comments: Travel to the race is convenient (being in Zurich) Swim is on a nice lake with a very shallow section about 2K in the race (you can even stand and take a break! Very nice bike ride not too technical, not too hilly, just perfect! The run is average. Lots of turns and narrow spaces. 4 loops passing by the finish 3 times can be hard went going thru a rough parch...DNFing is way too easy/convenient... Zurich was kind of too pricey for what it really is...overpriced hotels, rest, etc
