The location again will be Rancho Seco Park with a beautiful lake swim, a one-loop bike course, and a two-loop trail run. Each competitor entered in the TBF HIT V will receive a custom TBF HIT race tech t-shirt, TBF HIT Finisher Medal, TBF HIT Finisher tech-tee shirt, along with the TBF HIT Goody Bag, post race hot meal, and massage. Free parking is available for all athletes, plus RV sites and camping with showers. Finishers of the TBF HIT V will receive a custom TBF HIT V Finisher Medal, and a TBF HIT V Finisher T-shirt.
