“Very good event - Organisation good. I was a little disappointed that everything was packed away before the last athlete finished. Overall great event. Thank you”
“Really tough but fun - Great event, only missing some aid stations on the bike”
“different and tough location - Great location”
“Nice event, unexpected and tough - POSITIVE : Nice event with a lot of difficulties. The area is really nice for a tri, the organization team very friendly and helpful.
TO IMPROVE : Support stations (no coca, Nothing during the bike), Route signage (way was not clearly indicated and people were not showing the way during the round-about). At the end, the medal should be more specific to the event (I did Mamzar Triathlon and I got the same medal with a different sticker)...
Overall, very nice experience and "I'll back"....”
“Challenging and Different to other UAE Triathlons - Great organisation as usual by SuperSports, and a far more challenging course than I've experienced before in UAE! Loved the change in scenery, the challenge of the hills and the fantastic venue for transition. Would have liked an extra 10km on the bike for the Olympic Distance though!”
“Great race - Very well organized event, especially for a first time. Everything went smooth.
Really nice (and tough) course.”
“Great event - First timer on hills so even the super sprint was fairly tough but really enjoyed it. For super sprint would recommend changing the course or providing toilets at the swim point where we had to wait for 1 1/2 hours to start. Overall a fantastic event though!”
“A must try experience - If there is a rating above 10, I wouldn’t hesitate to do so. I can’t think of anything that went wrong. The organizers, marshals, support stations and all were just amazing.”
“Brilliant, tough Triathlon - I was told about the hills before the race and boy were they right. The Bike element was hard work but very satisfying when you complete it. The race was very well organised and swimming in the dam was a great experience. Highly recommend this race and looking forward to competing in it again. Thanks to all for another successful event!”
“Not my best day - Loved the location but not my performance.”
“Just superb - THE best triathlon in town. The organization; the venue; the marshaling. And a great change in format from the usual. Excellent”
“Amazing job - epic course and great staff - Recommend to write a comment on the event notice next year telling people to ensure they have quality breaks prior to race day. Also I would leave a helpful hint that 11 gear rear cassettes for climbing are helpful to have. I’ve already told all of my friends about the event. I had an amazing time. Looking forward to participating again next year.”
“What a blast. - Well done on creating a challenging tri fantastic location and support from Dubai police and Hatta really made it a unique expierience. And those hills OMG!!!”
“a great race ! - Make it a bit more challenging and add Hatta dam run and back after the bike... Well organised and enjoyable race & place, highly recommended.”
