Okay, wisdom of the Slowtwitch forum, I need your help finding a good HIM to do. I need to complete one before next summer to validate my entry into another race (SOS).
- Within driving distance or nonstop flight from Denver
- Preferably NOT Ironman brand
- Preferably May, June, or July (basically any weekend other than June 23/24 and June 30/July 1)
- Not a shitshow (so, no HITS races)
nonstop flight from Denver to Sacramento: Southwest Airlines has them apparently by using Google.
Not Ironman brand: Auburn Triathlon in Auburn California. - dubbed the hardest half Ironman triathlon in the world. However, they've apparently changed it so that the bike course is flatter.
I've not done the event but I'm signed up. Race Date: June 3, 2018
There are videos of the triathlon with results posted online for past events.

The triathlon is going on 16 years and USAT Membership is required.
If there were more hours in the day then I would be cycling more!
