Anyone heard of the Moratock Triathlon?
I'm thinking of doing this next month (sorry, in pdf format): http://www.co.stokes.nc.us/triathlon.pdf
I have been training for "something" for the past 2 months, riding road bike ~25 miles a day about 3 days a week, running most of the rest, and typcially taking one day off. Was looking for info on mountain bike trails and found this triathlon on the stokes county website. This is more of a duathlon than a triathlon, as the swim stage is really a tube ride down the Dan river
. Anyways, I can't find any info on the route or how big an event this is, and was wondering if anyone has done this before. It's in Stokes County, NC, about 2.5 hrs from where I live. My dad lives up there, so I am planning on going up the night before and staying at his place.
BTW, this will be my first "tri", but I did do cross country/track in high school, so the running part has come back to me pretty easily. I can do ~5 miles at a good clip pretty easily now. I also commute to school on my MTB every day, so have decent riding skills, but don't know how I'm going to do on the hill climbs this thing looks to have plenty of.
