Great job by the event organizers and volunteers! Flew in from Tampa with my wife to watch my daughter Erin, who drove from Kansas City to compete in her first Triathlon. Thanks to Raton Parks, police and fire and NM parks for supporting this. Our first time to Raton, nice area.
Signing up for this event changed my life. I am healthier and much fitter and will continue this path and can't wait to sign up for the race next year and do even better!!!!--Northeastern, NM
Of all the races I’ve done, I think this was the most fun. The locals were welcoming, and everyone was helpful and cheerful. Multi-sport races take a huge number of volunteers, and the whole event was well organized. It was the perfect length, with good competition.
Would rate it HIGH. Not 'would' do it again....but WILL do it again. Well run, logistics not a problem, unusual combination of events, professional timer, professional photographer and good swag! --happy competitor
I really enjoyed the setup of the course. The run, paddle and the bike were all in spectacular areas with great scenery.
I had a blast.
Fun atmosphere. Well organized.
The event was AWESOME. I will do it again next year.
The location was beautiful and the terrain was diverse.
