San Diego Triathlon Classic

Triathlon Reviews

There’s a reason we’ve been voted the best triathlon in San Diego for three years running…  Read these triathlete reviews to see what past participants have to say about our race!

“Great race overall, has the potential to be hands down the premier local race.”

“Thank you for putting on a challenging, enjoyable, and excellent inaugural SD Tri Classic.  The event organization was first class, excellent olympic course, great post race food.  The Marine Corps band was a very special treat.  I had a wonderful time.  I look forward to next year’s event!”

“From start to finish, I’d have to say this was the best race of the summer here in San Diego.  Nice little things like the cool band in the morning, the aid station on the bike was nice and nothing like a killer beer after a hard race to start the day.”

“Just wanted to say thanks again for bringing Olympic distance triathlon back to San Diego! It was a great event, and everyone I spoke with really enjoyed it and said they will definitely race it again next year. The course was fantastic, convenient to get to, and suitably challenging. You all did a great job, and should be very, very proud of the event you put on. I look forward to watching it grow year after year.”

“I really had a great time at the event, and felt it was well organized; the course was challenging and overall was well thought out.  I will tell others about it and definitely participate next year.”

“You guys did a great job!!  It was well run and well organized.  You definitely have THE BEST finishers medals of all time!  The Marine Band was outstanding and really added to the atmosphere.  The entire crowd went silent when they played the National Anthem (really inspiring and motivating).  Thanks again for a great time, I have it on my calendar for next year and I’m telling everyone I know to go next year!”

“Just wanted to pass along my thanks to everyone who made this a great race and hopefully one that will be around for years to come.  The venue was perfect, the bike and run course were really nice and being an older competitor, it’s great to not have to wait around until 8:00 or 8:30 to start the race.”

“Fantastic race! Great venue, great food, 2 T-shirts… Loved everything. Thanks for putting on the best race in San Diego!”

“Great job!  I had a lot of fun and thought the spirit/vibe of the event, along with the course location and overall organization was awesome.”

“I would like to thank all the organizers, sponsors and the many great volunteers for making my first triathlon experience wonderful and rewarding. Not knowing what to expect I was somewhat anxious and intimidated upon arriving but that feeling quickly evaporated upon interaction with the volunteers and fellow racers and the general ease created by the impeccable organization. Once again THANKS for the wonderful event!!”

“Thank you for a very well organized race.  We will definitely come and do this again.”

“I would personally like to thank everyone at Moment Cycle Sport, the volunteers and everyone else who provided their support for your Triathlon. This was my first official Triathlon (sprint) and I couldn’t have been more pleased with the event. Even though this was your inaugural Triathlon, I was extremely impressed on how well organized it was. Everything from the prerace on-line registration/communications, on-site facilities, registration/expo, the race course, posting of the results, refreshments and the overall organization was extremely well done. Congratulations…great job!!!”

“Awesome race. Very well organized and fun.”

“My wife and I participated in your Olympic distance triathlon on October 10th.  It was our first of that distance.  We enjoyed it very much and are looking forward to running it again next year.”

“Thank you, thank you, thank you!! Your race was so much fun!!! I participated in order to help my friend who was doing her first ever triathlon at age 49. Since you started all of the sprint/women at the same time, I was able to swim with her and help keep her relaxed. The course was great – for all 3 legs of the race! No surf on the swim, and bike and run courses with a little of everything. All of the volunteers were friendly and helpful. Most of all, I felt safe on the bike course where there was car traffic. Lastly – it was really cool having the Navy band there and getting to ride through the base. They were awesome! Thanks again and I do look forward to participating again next year!”

“I had a great time at the tri today, it was sent up very well. It was a very pleasant experience.”

“I thought this was a great race.  The venue was beautiful and the energy was very good too.  The volunteers were great and there was a lot of LOVE!  I loved the grassy transition and the giant racks.  Plenty of space there was nice.  The band was super and the 80s music afterward was delightful.  It was a last minute decision to race and I am so glad I did.  I especially loved that the race was on a Saturday and I didn’t have to miss church.  THANK YOU!!!”

“Thanks for putting on a great race!  It was super well marked and a great course!!  I look forward to doing it again next year!!”

“Thanks so much for a great event yesterday. You guys did an amazing job for a first time race, very well organized and the bike course was well marked for those of us that had not seen it before. Amazing how fast you got the results out! Thanks again.”

“Overall the race was a blast – I ran the Sprint course – and you guys did a great job getting it set up.  The beer garden by Stone was outstanding and the shirts were great.”

“We had a great weekend and it was a very fun and challenging course. I especially loved the bike course.”

“I just wanted you to know that I (and my husband) thought you all did a phenomenal job.  As you might imagine, we both were a little concerned with “first time events” having participated in the first year the Rock and Roll Marathon was in SD and there were many issues that were not pleasant.  You guys did a wonderful job.  The course was awesome (we did the sprint), everything well organized, LOVED the race results you provided – first time I saw that level of detail and ability to manipulate data – thank you.  Keep up the good work and we look forward to participating again next year. Please keep us on your email list!”
