For the last 2 years there have been last minute changes to the race. Sharing a course with Another event, course changes. Both years the change was not announce until the day before the race. I donâ€™t hold the organizers for the Course of the MS150 or construction not being completed, but I do for them not knowing. Poor organization. And giving cotton shirts.... not acceptable.
I have been at at least 3 of their events. I couldnâ€™t think of a more put together enjoyable races! The food is great! The organizers are helpful and very friendly. From start to finish with an after party itâ€™s well worth every penny! The company is also Christ based which is so awesome! Redemption Races thank you for great memories!
This is my favorite triathlon. The slide is awesome. The race director is professional and cares about putting on a good and safe race. Last year there were issues due to all the rain. He could have canceled it but made it work!
I competed in the Aquabike, I timed my bike split in 40:52. They gave me a total time of 1:01:18 or in other words I swam 300 meters plus about 150 m of transition running plus transition changing in 20 minutes and 26 seconds. I came here with a 100 m seed time of 1:35. That finals time was impossible. This race was a waste of money and my time. Don’t race for redemption racing.
This race is so fun. Obviously Terri took over redemption she worked very hard with her new crew. There were several kinks. However most upsetting no national anthem was sung and the cheap Mexican soccer shirts were hated by all. Always looked forward to the cute shirts
Last year I did the duathlon because my ankle was hurt. Some other woman doing the Triathlon couldnt remember her number and gave you the wrong number. Yall said yall would fix it and send me results. I never got them. I really enjoy doing the Wurst triathlon but want to make sure if I do it I get my results. Honestly I was hurt that yall never got back to me after I reached out time and time again. Again I do love doing this tri and it is really fun.
super fun race! Such a beautiful course! Really enjoyed it! Felt very organized and I had no problems!
First I sowed up as "DQ'd." I knew I didn't DQ, so I go to the timing guys. They tell me I finished first. They call awards, my name wasn't called. But I had the first-place time. You guys really need to change your timing company. This is the 2nd year in a row this has happened. Very discouraging. It's a shame because this race is really unique and fun. Volunteers are very friendly and the swim is super fun.
Unacceptable how long it takes to get results
Great race venue, good food, volunteers, transition set up, signage! But how is it that the timing system screwed up now 2 years in a row? Waiting over 2 hrs for awards is unacceptable. Ran out of medals this year so relays and duathlons go home empty handed??!! Please do not schedule on the same weekend as the MS Ride again.
One of the worst races I have done ( and I have done a few Tri's). The volunteers were great. But for the price this race costs it is not worth what you get. This for SURE isn't a race you want to do if you care about your time. Between getting stuck behind people swimming (and then almost stuck in the hydrilla), to trying not to get hit by a car on the NOT closed bike route (oh and biking with people from ANOTHER race for several miles) to losing time because we had to stop biking and wait for the train to pass... so many issues. Communication prior to the race was poor as no current race info was shared via email till two days before the event. The only restrooms for the entire event are located at the Aquatic Center so if you have to "go" between the bike and the race you have to wait in line with random people also using the restroom. Oh and the "no spectators in the transition area" rule wasn't enforced as I saw multiple people not racing in there. If you just want a fun mess around type of Tri then sure, go for this one. If you want a real professionally done Tri look elsewhere. Again, the volunteers were great so props to them. Otherwise the rest was meh. Won't be coming back again.
This was my first triathlon and for what I paid ($139) I was very disappointed in the execution of it. I didn’t receive any information on the race whatsoever until a week before the race to which I had to quickly book a hotel because of the time. The race was Octoberfest themed and it was advertised that there would be brautwurst and food after. Upon finishing in the middle of the pack, there was nothing but rice and fruit left. I was very disappointed and looking forward to the food post race. People were going up for tons of food before some people received any. The race timing was also messed up and my time did not reflect the time I actually finished in which was quite frustrating. When race results were posted, we were not sent a link to the website to locate the times so it took forever to find. Overall I think this event could have been planned a lot better and they could have ordered a ton more food.
