Well marked courses are very nice. And too damned rare. Our town hosts a triathlon almost every year (not last year) that runs on the same road… at the same time… as we drive to the farmers market, so we encounter it about yearly. THAT race has monitors, with hand-held stop signs at EVERY automotive road intersection. And volunteers with “go this way” flags at every place where the other ones aren’t already in place. Probably about 500 racers and 800 volunteers, seems like from over here where I sit. (Must be nice, though).
