Happy Westport Kiwanis Racers
Congratulations on a fantastic event. We learned a lot about what the experience is, and just had a blast! What a gorgeous day and what a great setting. Anne R.
Thank you for a great experience for my first race. The morning was a lot of fun. I will remember this day for the rest of my life. I didn't win my age group or even finish very high but it was a great experience. Thank you so much for the opportunity to do this race. You guys are great.Paul S.
Awesome job on the tri!! Having the bike racks was a big help, everything (course, bike racks, registration) was marked well, volunteers were awesome (they were coming up to us instead of waiting for us to come to them to get body marks and chips). The overall atmosphere was very positive and happy!! Natasha
Last year I participated in the Westport Kiwanis Triathlon for the first time and throughly enjoyed the race. Having been a runner and racewalker for over 30 years and competing in international events, I could attest this was a very well run, organized and 1st time friendly event. Maryanne
