9.5 Very well organized race Emmanuel Pradie · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Race spot was just perfect in st Regis hotel on shady at beach. Beautiful set up, race on time, good time keeping. Regret: no chrono available for time spent in transition. It makes it difficult to know your real time for run split . Else, a beauty aquathlon.”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 14.12.2015
“Thanks Emmanuel, Glad you enjoyed The St Regis and the set up. We did think about putting the matt at the exit of transition for the run element. Just need a sponsor for the extra timing mats ”

10.0 Nice event I will go again Natheer Khasawneh · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“Nice event, it was a wonderful day for the whole family. I would love to do it again. I think we ran and swim longer than the 750m 5k, at least this what my watch gps says. My watch gps recorded 840m for the swimming (shore to shore) and 5.41km for the running (excluding the transition distance).”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 13.12.2015
“Thanks Natheer, we appreciate the feedback. It is quite possible that you swan more than 750m and ran longer as course measurement is point to point and very few of us can actually hold the measurers line. The main thing is that we all competed on level playing field (except for the odd wave) and had fun at a brilliant venue that catered to all. Hope to see you at our next event”

9.6 Overall decent value for money · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“I find the sport events overall expensive in the UAE but this one is decent value for money. I received a medal, water bottle, t-shirt and light snacks after the race. I would recommend as it provides an opportunity to be timed and compete. ”
