A YMCA about 45 minutes away from here is holding it's 2nd annual triathlon. Last year it was shorter and I don't think they quite knew what to expect.
I checked their website and it's on again but they have made it 300 meter pool swim, 10 mile bike ride, and 3 mile run so the bike ride and run are longer than last year.
They have stated that there will be an hour time limit. I find this totally unreasonable! I am not an experienced triathlete but I have done 2 triathlons. The one I did in the fall was a 300 meter pool swim, 8 mile bike ride, and 2 mile run and I finished it it in 1:05 with many others finishing behind me.
Should I email the director and ask how strict they will be about this time limit? It will take me 33-34 minutes to finish the 3 mile run and it was on a soft grassy course last year. I think the bike would take me around 45 minutes. That is 1:15 right there without the swim.
What are your thoughts as experienced triathletes?
