      Hi Karla, we will hopefully have a video on the website soon. Thanks!

    Hi, great event, really enjoyed it! Even the rain. And the center is amazing!

    Do you know what the actual distances were? I know things had to be changed up a bit. My Garmin said almost 15 miles for the bike and several people said they got 6 miles for the run, even with a foot pod.


    • USNWC July 16, 2013 at 11:14 am

      Hi John, distances were around .5 miles for the swim, 12.5 miles for the biking and 5.5 for the run.
