Undulating but not hard core hilly is one comment.

Looking for a new tri-suit

I've never done a swim-bike brick- its just a tad hard in the UK - getting out of the pool and dashing off on your bike. Brrr.

Bike run - I've done those a few times - I can run OK in my bi shorts and I dont do huge mileages on the run.

Its a lot of money to pay for training in.

Maybe just get a pair of tri shorts ? I do use my fusion shorts for all of my marathons - they feel very compressive but that might just be a mental rather than a real advantage.

they have side pockets so you can bung gels in there too. And toilet stops are much easier in a 2 piece.

Gels etc when entering the States

Wasnt Swiss Bobby on a thread asking about this race too ? He might know - I think he's done it before ?

And I'd not rely on the race gels alone - Poland Spring?? Brand 100% Natural Spring Water will be available at the start, finish, and at official fluid stations every mile beginning at mile 3.
Gatorade?? Endurance Formula??? will be available at official fluid stations every mile beginning at mile 3 except at mile 17.
Fluids will be dispensed in recyclable cups. There will be tables on both sides of the course. To avoid the bottleneck at the first table, get a cup from a later table. Please keep moving after you pick up your cup.
The Poland Spring?? Hydration Zone???including water stations, sponges, and music???will be located at mile 17 on First Avenue.
At the PowerGel Energy Zone at mile 18, assorted PowerGels will help your hurdle "the wall" and energize you to the finish.
Fruit will be available at the fluid stations at miles 20-23.
For your safety, take fluids and food only at official stations.

Seems that its only mile 18 that they have some ? Bit late I'd have thought.
