• The site for the beginning and end of the race—inside an amusement park—was VERY cool!
• I thought the Rev3 site could have been a little more user-friendly. It was difficult for most of my friends to find, and track me online. I would suggest that they have a large link on their website that says "TRACK ATHLETES HERE." My wifey spent over an hour trying to find me online, and was only able to track me from a friend who posted the link on Facebook.
• There was plenty of course nutrition and aid stations on both the bike and the run.
• The sports drink on the bike and run course was CeraSport. I was not a big fan of this drink at all. I can stomach pretty much everything in terms of nutrition, but I thought CeraSport was not the yummiest thing they could have went with. I have yet to meet another athlete who actually liked the taste of CeraSport.
• The race meeting was a bit informal. I have been to race meetings that were mandatory—like Musselman—where athletes have to sign in, or give their bib number. Race meetings are to ensure the athletes are informed and safe. The RD was a nice guy, but he did not have a list that he was going through. It seemed like he was kind of flying by the seat of his pants, although he managed to store a lot of information in his RAM.
• There was plenty of parking for transition, but when I first entered the park, I spent twenty minutes trying to find transition. One simple suggestion: A sign that reads "Parking for Rev3 Transition here," complete with arrow would be nice.
• Rev 3 did a great job of making everyone out on the course feel like they were a world class athlete running the biggest race in the world.
• The finisher shirt? Extremely Awesome.
