10.0 Great event. Brett Hooper · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Great event. Suggest water station at transition to prep personal bottles, etc... and need notices if jelly fish are known in swim location with vinegar and creams to deal with stings and skin abrasions. But really enjoyed it.”

10.0 Brilliant event; very enjoyable Douglas Wood · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“A brilliant event at an inspirational location. Well organised and very enjoyable. A suggestion for next time: have an additional timing mat at transition exit. It would be really interesting to have transition times and to know your actual run time. It would also provide details of lap times for the run.”

10.0 Great Event Jonathan Ragland · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“I enjoyed all of this event it was really great to see all ages participating. I will love to do this race again.”

10.0 A wonderful start to the weekend! · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“The venue and organisation were excellent. Very helpful staff and stewards and the registering at the venue was well-run. The course itself was very good. Apart from being stung by jellyfish in the water, I enjoyed the event! However, we were previously informed we could use the beach until 10am - the lifeguard said we had to clear by 9.30am as 'guests were arriving'. There were 2 other people on the beach! Anyway, will gladly participate again. Many thanks! ”

9.6 Very good experience · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

10.0 Good organization and enjoyable experience Sami Encol · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Water, the sea was calm like a pond but water quality could not match to open sea,e.g. Saadiyat Beach. Please try to do these aquathlons there as much as possible.”

10.0 Great morning out Andrew Parker · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“This was a great event at a spectacular location. Everything was well organised and the inclusion of the junior and tiny tots races made this a great family morning out. The only thing that could have been improved would be to have some vinegar on hand for those exiting the water with jelly fish stings. ”

9.6 Enjoyable Caroline Holt · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“A well organised event for a first timer i was very impressed”

10.0 A fantastic way to start the day! Eric Stoclet · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
9.5 Great fun race Alexander Whitfield · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“Really enjoyed, and well organised. Lots of help and information and fabulous location and community spirit. Is it possible though, to introduce U10s, U12s, U14s etc as to be 8 competing against an 11 year old and being 12 competing against a 16 year old isn't much fun. Just a thought!”

9.3 I came first place! · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe
10.0 Great race at top location ! Jan Tytgat · Participation 4 times I would take part again Yes

“Again, a very well organized event at a wonderful location. Many thanks to the organizers and the many young volunteers standing in the sun showing us runners the right way and handing out drinks. ”

10.0 Great event and brilliant venue · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
9.4 It was fun for a 1st timer but confusing Hisham El Hifnawi · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“I just hoped we were told about the Jelly fish before the swim. Also, I was totally confused about the super sprint swim part, 2 people next to me told me to turn right with the 1st red buoy! which I had to know myself during the race it self that I should continue straight further to the other buoy! Other than that all were helpful, i was given a pack of ice for the jelly fish (I though it was a cramp because I didn't expect jelly fish at all!) :)”

10.0 Great Swim! Great Run! Great Family Event! Joseph Khater · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“This was a well organised event, with lots of sponsor provided items to engage every one. One suggestion it would be nice, if possible, to finish the last 25 meters run on the grass or pavement and not end up in the sand, getting the shoes all muddy. The route marshals & water station staff were excellent. Goody bag, medal, shirt, breakfast...all included, well done Abu Dhabi Tri Club keep it up! ”

10.0 Great Course, fun for all the family!!! Rafael Celma · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“Nice Place for Sports and recreation! Family Friendly!!!”

9.7 Swim and run in Emirates Palace! Emmanuel Pradie · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
Edited on 24.10.2015

“Very well organized . Near perfection! Only issue: very very stingy Gelly Fish , which can be dangerous to the kids. It would be best to plan of some vinager for the victims. The medic should also be prepared for such case. Apart from that great to run in the Palace gardens! Well done guys! ”

10.0 Great event Lachlan Mollison · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Great event, well organized. Would prefer event pack collection the day before or start event a bit later. 5:30am was a bit harsh for my kids that were also taking part.”

Edited on 24.10.2015

“The event was great! Two things: Race instructions was not the same for race course (Sprint). I wish if the instructions were sent earlier (one week at least). Otherwise the event was great! See you next time.”

9.7 Great venue, very well organised, good atmosphere · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“If i have to comment on something i would say that the sprint swim course was not as described in the online racepack but it didn't really matter as it was all explained at the start. Thanks for a great morning!”
