Autumn Lake Tri Testimonials

Today, I competed in the Autumn Lake Triathlon hosted by the Williamstown Badgers Triathlon Club.  This was an A++ race in every way.

Steve del Monte

In 20 years of competing I can say this was the best first time race.

This was their inaugural event, but you wouldn’t know it.  It was very well organized, the venue was beautiful, and they had amazing volunteers.

Joan T

I will certainly enter this race again as the Badgers have produced a race from the athlete’s point of view.

Autumn Lake Tri today was fantastic.  You would never know this was an inaugural event.  The set up was great, the vibe was great, and the volunteers were top notch!

This was by far the best Tri I’ve ever participated in.  So much support from the volunteers.  The entire set up was beautiful and amazing.

Beautiful venue!  Lake was awesome and the swim start was perfect!  Great job!  Coming back next year and bringing some friends!

The entire day went so smoothly and was so well organized.  Seemed like the 10th year of the event, not the first.  Congratulations!

Awesome inaugural event!  The atmosphere was great.  The volunteers were great.  The event was safe, fun, and challenging.  Loved it!

From a participant’s perspective, a flawless event.  Hard to believe it was the first one.

It was obvious that careful thought and consideration was given to even the smallest details.

The lake is heaven and running next to the grape vines is something out of a book.  Definitely will sign up next year.
