The 2022 Moose Lake Triathlon was the first triathlon my husband and I ever did! It was a blast and I would definitely recommend making this your first, if you've never done one before! The feel of the event was official enough that I felt safe, that things were well coordinated and the support staff were well prepared, BUT it wasn't so official that I felt like I didn't belong. As a newbie, all it would have taken was for one experienced attendee to be an a-hole about me being there and being lost/slow and I would have sworn off triathlons forever. The folks I interacted with, including the participants, were kind and jovial. It really felt like everyone there, even those out to go fast and set PRs, was also there to have a good time and to encourage one another. 
 
The swim portion of this race was, by far, the farthest I've ever swam in my entire life. I practiced my crawl stroke before the race, but wasn't able to coordinate my breathing, heart rate and nerves enough to execute in the open water, so I swam the entire half-mile doing the breaststroke and backstroke, with my face above water the whole way. It was an inefficient approach, but it is possible to finish with other beginner level swimmers with that approach! 
 
Moose Lake is a BEAUTIFUL destination which also added to the experience. To top it all off, there was clear guidance in the race guidebook that helped us prepare and know what to expect. There were volunteers at each important milestone (even for those of us at the back of the pack). The spectators were wonderful, cheering along the route and at the finish. And possibly most importantly, the t-shirts had a cool design with a big moose head and were super comfy, and the participant medals also had a moose head and were MADE OUT OF WOOD! There is lots to love about this race!

Moose Lake Triathlon has the best of both worlds- small town charm with big time perks!
When I was looking into the race, I found the website and Facebook page to be very up to date and user-friendly. The pre race communication was clear and helpful. When I arrived at the venue the volunteers were ready for action. My race bag was full of valuable coupons for things like free ice cream and beer as well as a really cool medal (actually wooden and doubles as a coaster), and a great looking T-shirt. The venue/park was a great place for my husband to spectate and hang out with our dog.  The swim course was simple and well marked. The bike course was also well marked and a nice mix of roads and bike path. The out and back run through the neighborhoods along the lake was a great way to finish this fun and friendly race!
