Mega Colossus?

Last year's was sometime in July and I think this would be epic suffering. The blisters on your feet alone would be worth writing about.

No wetsuits, no fins, no shoes. Barefoot on the sand and swimming with what ya got.
It's 8.5 miles from start to finish with 4000 yards of swimming in 4 sections. The fastest times I've seen are 1 hour 37. Jeeze that's fast.

Could be fun?

Huntington State Beach here in So Cal. It's totally free and you're racing for bragging rights. I'm still trying to figure out how to finish it without tearing my feet all to hell.

Looks like getting in and out of the water fast and reading ocean conditions play a big factor.
