For the long course the 500m swim is up & down each of 5 lanes, ducking under buoys to get over to the next. Opportunity to warm up in diving pool before the swim. Bib pick up/transition zone/post race snacks etc. all at P6 parking lot. Bike course is out & back both directions (loops) from T-zone along Colonel By. Run course is out & back along Colonel By drive.

Terry’s Istrian Marathon (Slovenia)

The course takes you through four cities along the Adriatic. The first part of the race is up in Ankaran. We run down towards Koper which is directly by the water. This is when the race shines with it’s scenery. Plus, it’s flat. The section towards Izola is beautiful along the sea wall. There are some hills as we approach the outskirts of Piran. We run through an old rail tunnel and climb a several steps to a wooden bridge over sea salt collecting areas.

Dan’s ATB Hybrid Hammer & Brews

Synopsis: This race is always well organized. Being my 9th time running the 30k, it was nice to go back to in-person racing with this race.

The ATB Hammer Hybrid consist of a virtual 2k, 5k, 10k and 15k and capped with in-person 30k. I did all the virtual distances during my training leading up to the 30k in-person race.

H&J: Love the fine selection of ATB Brews for the post-race recovery.
