Thank you for an incredible race experience.

That was my first full Ironman. I would not have wanted the experience any other way. Thank you for your efforts in keeping a small town race and treating everyone there like they were family! It was awesome!

I have raced all over the country

and podium nationally and, although HITS is new, this race is on par with all those other national races.

HITS great timing and locations

HITS is filling a void with both timing and its locations. They have brought races to some of the best places in the country and have finally given triathletes options.
