2014 Athlete Comments:
I brought the family all the way from Buffalo NY so I could do this half because I heard so many good things about it. It was a fantastic race. Very well organized and everybody was very friendly. I had my best half even with some mechanical issues on the bike and the run was perfect even with that big hill. The only thing I would suggest is a couple more of the big buoy’s in the water marking the course. It was really hard to see because they were so far away and the sun was so bright. I am already planning on heading to NY city in Sept. once the notifications get emailed. thanks for a memorable race.
“Steve, I competed at the Muncie Endurathon in 2001, 2002, AND 2003! LOVED the Championship Race…spectacular!!!
So I truly honestly registered for Toughman when I saw you were Race director and told friends in Columbus YOUR management was the reason I was returning to Indiana… > I did have to laugh at the fact I am 66 and entering a “Toughman” competition…I wrote TOUGH GIRL on my pink swim cap:) YOU are to be commended for the EXCELLENT AID stations with plenty of water and ICE!! I have been in several races in different cities over the past several years where the ice never arrived, water was warm and hoses were being used, way toooooo few water stops on HOT days which created dangerous conditions. After radiation treatments in 2005, I HAVE > to HAVE ICE for my CAP and even throw it down my TRI suit:):) On that last LONG uphill of the run, a volunteer (or Race Official?) riding a golf cart even stopped and asked if I wanted another bottle of water…I was SO IMPRESSED AND at TOUGHMAN I was personally being offered another bottle of water…CHEERS!!!! POINT being…YOUR VOLUNTEERS were THE BEST and cared about the athletes!! Pat
