Summary: Great race. Highly reccommended for first timers and experienced racers.
Comments: I did this race in 2002, the inaugural year (although the race already had a history as Ironman Europe before the organizers split with the WTC the previous year). If you are looking to do your first Ironman, look no more. This race is very well organized, the course offers a little bit of everything: on the bike you will encounter climbs, flats, false-flats, fast down-hills; on the run you will alternate between paved roads and hard packed dirt (read forgiving) trails. The swim is an out-and-back on a canal without current...virtually impossible to go off course. The crowd support was incredible, and I would argue that the fast times seen here every year are very much tied to the crowds that come out to cheer all competitors. If you have ever wondered what a TdF rider experiences when climbing the high mountains being cheered by fans going nuts, the Solar Berg climb will give you the answer. When you are done with the race, take the opportunity to visit this great region of Bavaria. If time and finances allow, hop on a train to Paris, Prague,...or anywhere in Europe! You are already there, take advantage of it!
