1st Annual Heybales Half-Ironman Triathlon - Sep 3

So I was hoping to get another triathlon in this season, but alas the only semi-local half-ironman (70.3) was the same weekend I already had unchangable plans.

So just going to do it myself.

This event is not sanction by Triathlon USA organization, it has no chip timing, it has no support, no t-shirts, no finishing medals, no aid stations.

Timing and distance confirmation are provided by a Garmin 310XT.

Monday Sep 3 is the last day the public pools are open so at least the swim can be done in 25 meter pool, rather than gym's 50 ft pool. It is also a holiday, so no work. If it's raining, there will be a postponement, which is one positive of a self-done race. Sadly it follows 2 days after an already scheduled and paid for Saturday Century bike ride. (Gorilla Century - fastest ride claim)

The swim start is about 1pm, and is an out-and-back course basically, done 39 times though, for 1.211 mile.
There is a bathroom on the way to the transition area - which is the back of car.
The bike route is a big loop with one section double looped, for 56 miles. There is a convience store at about mile 26 & 40.
Transition area is again back of car.
The run route is 3 loops, for 13.1 miles. There is a convience store at about miles 3 & 7 & 11 for water bottle refill.
End of race assistance is several fast food places on the way home.
Course closes when last person comes in, hopefully in about 6.5 hrs, by 7:30 pm.

If you can think of suitable way to have a t-shirt or better yet a medal, let me know.
