Summary: The acme of suffering
Comments: So the race director Frank Lowery is a real sick-o who serves up 9700 vertical feet of bicycle climbing and like 1700 feet during the run...you'll swear the swim has elevation gain too! But to help you get through it there's a high ratio of volunteers to entrants and nothing is left out unless you like congested swim starts and high entry fees. If you can muster the nerve to schlog through this race and finish it, I can't describe the feeling of satisfaction you will feel and that's something that's hard to put a price on. So if a 52 year old can finish this race as his very first Tri on almost no training I hope you will feel less intimidated by the terrain and weather conditions and sign up when the race returns. What happens in Vegas can stay in Vegas but what happens in Henderson next door is the best kept secret in Tri.

Summary: Fantastic but challenging
Comments: The RD calls this the most grueling iron distance in the world. The beauty of the bike course make up for the hills. The hills don't end when you hit the run. You cannot fake your way through this course. While there are not many spectators on the bike or run course, those who are there are some of the most vocal. They are truely proud to be out there and to be volunteering for the race. you are not a number in the crowd, unlike at any of the M-dot races You get more swag for your entry fee then at any other race that I've done. Nice back pack, towel, blanket, hat, waterbottle, race shirt, finishers shirt, dinner, pancake breakfast and the best organization I've seen. I did Kona and got a cheap pink TYR drawstring bag. A must do event - just make sure that you train for the race. It's been rough in the water the last three years, with strong winds on the bike. I have done this race the last four years and will be back for number five.

Summary: Great Event
Comments: Definitely the hardest 1/2 I've done--both the course itself and the weather made it an unforgettable experience. It was my 5th? 1/2 IM distance and definitely the one I remember the most. Oh yeah--the gear you get in your bag rules!

Summary: Do this race!
Comments: Organization is second to none. (Better than an M-dot IM.) Swimming in Lake Mead is fun, the scenery on the bike is spectacular, and the run course is not your average slog along city streets/country roads. The weather can be brutal (it was in 2008), but that's part of the
