Is there anyone who has done this race and can give me a good idea of
what to expect. I have not signed up for it an have been a little lax
in training. So any advice out there could help me make my decision.

In addition - anyone that has done the Rye NY USTS race?  please
provide me some feedback on this one as well. Thanks.

Sorry but I don't know much about the West Point race, but I've done USTS
Westchester lasy year. Although the course is a bit strange, the swim isn't bad
at all. Just pay attention to the officials at the meeting when they talk about
the course.

The bike is a series of rolling hills through Westchester and nearby
Connecticut. The hills aren't big, but are numerous.

The run starts out onto nearby rye, with one or two short hills, with the last
1.5 miles going through Playland itself.

Hope this helps.
