Many friends have asked us our opinion on Ironman races that we have done.  Instead of writing race reports for each event, we decided to summarize things into a simple chart, noting our personal preferences. Keep in mind, opinions are just that - each event is a personal endeavour, so personal experinece may vary... but below is our take on it!

Race Rating Legend : 1=easy to 5=difficult / 1=poor to 5=excellent / 1=inexpensive to 5=expensive / 1=no to 5=yes
