Featuring a 2.4 mile swim in Lake Mead, a 112 mile bike with over 9,700 feet climbing, and a 26.2 mile run that boasts another 2,000 feet elevation gain, the Silverman is the race that sets triathletes apart from the mainstream. You've had Iron, are you ready for Silver?
Now to find some hills in Texas. haha. Actually, I'll spend a week in Fort Davis in October and ride and run for a week around there. There are a few loops that I can manage a couple thousand feet of elevation gain. A good 300-350 miles bike weekly biking riding session with 60-80 miles running on a 30 hour week should get me prep'd for Silverman
