I know a few whom have done this. Chime in if you have done ironman or team on this. I am seriously considering doing this race next summer, prefer with a goup of guys (Briley, Jacob, Kyle???, others???) but would do this ironman as well. I know I would not be in it to win it but I do believe we could do a strong-ish finish.
Best in the desert: Vegas to Reno https://bitd.com/race-event/2020-vegas-to-reno/ I'm planning on doing this race with one or two stage rally buddies. We're looking for anyone else that is (or would be interested in) going. So far, we're just a 2 man team (unsponsored, and on a budget), and have totally accepted that we'll be guinea pigs for our group. Not a lot of details worked out yet, but a LONG to-do list has been made!
