“I have to give a shout-out to the local race! The Great Clermont Triathlon hosted by Sommer Sports (, Olympic distance. This was the 29th year of the event. I grew up doing this race (and others hosted by Sommer Sports). Clermont is a great winter training ground for triathlon and this is one of the earliest Olympic-distance races on the calendar. It’s also got some decent rolling hills on the bike course that people from out of town can be surprised by! On a side note, I live 200 meters from transition area and can hear the start of every race all summer long.”
