This was my first race, so I have little to which I can compare it. That said, I couldn't imagine a more professional experience, top to bottom. I had a lot on my mind, being a first timer and it went... swimmingly? Great job by everyone involved, from Steve, the DRBA, LTPD, all of the lifeguards and other safety personnel in the water, and all of the volunteers. GREAT GREAT GREAT event. Can't wait for next year.

FUN!!! Challenging time as a 1st time triathlon competitor... by far the swim was the toughest part... I felt very safe after the jump lots of lifeguards and it was a straight shot to the end of swim leg... don't let your fears hold you back the other athletes were absolutely amazing! Have some fun step outside of your comfort zone!

The race organization, the live chats and the guide was the best prep ever. The volunteers were the most amazing, cheerful, kind and helpful ever. I struggled big time in the swim. I had a guard paddle next to me encouraging me the whole time. When I finally got out of the water I was greeted by a huge welcome from a volunteer who unzipped me and helped me pull my suit down to my waist. I never thanked her cause I could barely talk! The course was perfectly marked, The organization, the people, the tri community is amazing. I loved this race and would highly recommend it. So proud I finished.

Third year in a row doing this race, the Olympic distance. The best organized and run event. Steve is continuously tweaking and improving this race. The diversity of this race makes it amazing from the boat jump, to the flat and fast bike to the dune sucking run. It’s great. Oh, and Cape May is an amazing destination too. Race is flat. Venue is clean and accessible. Race Director is a blast. Volunteers are friendly. Neighborhoods are accommodating. The ferry jump is unforgettable.

Congratulations on a very very well organized and one of the most well communicated/supported races I have participated in over my 30 years of racing. You also attracted a very high quality field of competitors from the local area. Bruckner was an awesome asset along with the sports psych on the boat to ease the minds of the swimmers.
