"It took doing another race to realize how much TM has spoiled me. You guys do a great job in over communicating, staying organized, support, venue selection, etc. You guys are right on par with the Ironman races I’ve done recently and I’ll continue to encourage everyone I know to select a TM race as the first option if they’re able to."
Thanks for all you do for the sport!
I just want to reach out and let you guys know that I thought the race Saturday was great. As always, I thought it was well organized and as far as the 5K course goes it provided a little bit of everything; flats, hills etc. I was impressed with the quality of the medals as I thought the weight of them was certainly respectful. The hoodie/shirt give away was a nice touch for the time of year and a lot better then the routine t-shirt. Again, great job to you and your team!

"My wife and I were fortunate enough to join 1,000+ other athletes today in Chattanooga for the Waterfront Triathlon. We've been to a number of your events, and have always been impressed with how well things are organized. Today we were BLOWN AWAY! The every staff and volunteer I met today was amazing - especially on the run course. Their friendly and cheerful attitudes helped make the hot run much more bearable. It also didn't hurt that they were ready with ice water, towels, and - possibly the best idea ever - misters and hoses!
I can only imagine the logistics in moving 1,000+ 'crazy' athletes over land and water. You guys make it look effortless! I just have one request - can you go ahead place and order for cooler temperatures for next year's race? Hey - I can dream can't I? :)
Thanks again for everything you do, and for all the amazing volunteers that helped make this day fantastic!"

"I really want to commend you and your company for making triathlon a huge part of my life. If it weren’t for the GJCC race in 2011, I might still be 265 and super sedentary. Instead, I'm finishing. On the podium of races like Cedars. So thanks a lot.
I've had the privilege of racing with a few different race companies now and you guys are without a doubt, hands down, bar none the best. Everything from registration to the race to the after party is well planned and executed. Keep up the great work and I'll see you guys at Music City."
"Having completed well over 50 triathlons, I saw without hesitation that Team Magic races are the greatest organized, best staffed, and consistently most fun events available. From the top race directors to the bottom designated last place finisher, the Team Magic crew knows triathlons. The races are fun and challenging for an elite athlete and a beginner. The locales that Team Magic selects make not only a great race but aslo a fun weekend. I ahve seen the Montgomery Biscuits and spent a day boating on Lake Guntersville. It's easy to build a mini-vacation around a Team Magic event. Team Magic is simply the best in the business."

"The Buster Britton Memorial Triathlon was an inspiring event, and our Brookwood Medical Center brand was well represented as presenting sponsor through event signage, race t-shirts, e-blasts, and prominent expo opportunities. We certainly see the value in partnering with Team Magic to support health and fitness in the community."
Vice President of External Affairs for Brookwood Medical Center
"Sponsorship is a rewarding experience with Team Magic and USA King's Crossing LLC expanding their operations for the good. We've seen retail and online sales for our brand, Shave Secret, grow in the Southeast where Team Magic hosts its races. I've also witnessed Team Magic staff mature to become a professional group with solid contracts for their sponsors and that follows through on promises 100 percent. They keep us informed well in advance of their needs so we can plan for the fulfillment of our obligations. We have been very happy working with Team Magic and hope to continue our relationship."

"MCT last Sunday was my first as a CAT 3 Referee and a great experience. Thank you also for the Room at Extended Stay. Both were very good and I hope my services helped make your event better and safer. Every time I watch you guys in action I am amazed at how incredibly organized and cool you, Therese, and crew are. I look forward to working with you in the future. (with mileage from Tullahoma!)"

"The volunteer portion of the race was excellent, as well. I was at the finish line so it was great to see the racers at their best and worst. It really makes you want to yell and cheer for them. When we had questions, there was always TM staffer close by to help, and they always made time to do so. The volunteer tech shirts were amazing! I mean seriously, how can you provide tech shirts to volunteers?! I’ve run races were I’ve gotten less. It was a great touch and very much appreciated with the heat. It was definitely a long day with lots of standing and no shade, but I’m not complaining.There were no problems getting checked in and assigned to a spot. We also had a friend that wanted to sign up last minute. I told her to email you and at least ask if she could … the night before the last she got a response that said that would be no problem and she got paired with my wife and i. Again, what RD is going to respond to a volunteer the night before the race?? I emailed an RD 4 times over the course of 4 months last year, and didn’t get a single response.
The volunteer discount for future races is also a great touch.
So far, I have yet to have anything less than a great experience with TM (racing or volunteering). My only complaint is that there are not more Team Magic events."
"The race from a paratriathlete's perspective was very good. The most beneficial thing Team Magic did was allow the Paratriathletes to start right after the pros. We have the option to wear the wetsuit or not regardless of temperature, but when conditions are hot as they were on Sunday this move helped ensure we did not overheat on the swim.
I only really had one problem during the race, and there was nothing Team Magic could have done to prevent it. When I crossed the mount line for the bike my prosthetic slipped on the pavement and I took a good spill. Leg went flying off in your general yard sale carnage kind of way. I got up, dusted myself off and proceeded on the bike. I was actually laughing thinking, 'well got the wreck over with at the start.'
The race organization and route were very accommodating to me and Scott, and neither of us really had a problem different from the other athletes besides dealing with slippage of the prosthetic due to sweat. I cannot tell you how many other athletes encouraged me along the way to the finish, and it was a great experience for me I hope to repeat again in the future.
Thanks for a great experience! My parents and in-laws got to see me race for the first time since I started triathlon in 2006. I look forward to racing again with you guys soon. Next month I will head to NYC to attempt to qualify again for Team USA and head to Beijing in September. See you guys again soon!"
"Just wanted to drop you guys an email to say thanks for everything yesterday! I wasn't really sure what my experience would be like, serving as the Designated Last Place Finisher, but I have to say that it was one of the most fun and rewarding experiences I have ever had! I'm honored to say that Team Magic gave me the opportunity to give back to the sport..."
"The set up was amazing. Everything was so organized and clean. It was the best tri set up I have seen all year."
