Summary: Great race to do with a team or friends - nice swim
Comments: Go with friends or a team - super venue for that! Nice swim - beware of the undertow - bike has a few more hills than expected (lots of officials and drafting penalties galore). Run is as advertised - flat and fast - or flat and slow - flat either way! Be prepared for a loop through the park that will be empty of any spectators, food or drink - and this is a two loop course that part was a bit bleak. Nice number of spectators along the way overall, nice finish crowd and plenty of nice looking people too - fans included.

Summary: Great Race for my first ever triathlon back in 2000
Comments: This is where I got hooked on Irondistance racing. Did my first ever triathlon here as I just did not get in any local racing and was talked into trying this (Peer Pressure) a real blast, as I had to learn to swim for this race. Second time around in 2001, I was overworked and undertrained but showed up anyways and found you can not fake an Ironman but the fun was still there and I went on racing. Going back in 2009 to set my PB and redeem my late result from 2001. Cheers

Summary: Fast course but lacking community support
Comments: The course in 2007 was incredibly fast with a calm swim. The bike is flat but wears on you as you never have a chance to rest. The constant pedalling hurts you on the run. This is a great race, well organized but the community either a) doesn't even know the Ironman is on this weekend or b) is indifferent to the race. The race is held off season in Panama City Beach which is great for rental costs but many restaurants and attractions are closed for the season.
