Here we go.   Time to rev, Rev, REV IT UP!   Welcome to the Revolution!   Ready or not, here comes Team Z!   Note – if you have not been paying attention now may be the time.   This is a new course for Rev 3 Williamsburg – we’ve not seen this one before.   The race will start and end at Chickahominy River Front Park.   As the crow flies we are only a mile or two from the swim start/finish last year (when it was a 2 transition race).   The swim course this year actually pulls you out of the larger James River and moves the swim into 50% Chickamoniny River and 50% into Gordon’s Creek.   The bike courses are both one loop, and the run course is 10k for the short course race and 2 loops of the 10k for the half Iron.

This restaurant is highly recommended, and the reviews online are plentiful and outstanding.     The prices are more than fair ($12-13 pasta dishes).   We will roll in and sit/order as we arrive.   There is nothing formal.   You will order from the menu and pay your own tab.
