“Will definitely be back next year”
“More organization at the beginning of the event!
Specially with regards to set up of Transition places.
Mix-up between Junior events not advisable, I think they ended up running together.
Starting point of running out of transition places not clearly marked (first to left and then U-turn) had many kids confused.
More balance between the event (too much cycling).
I think this year the running distance was as per plan.
Overall great event!!!
“Amazing value for such a cheap price; great event, amazing course,very nice t-shirt and medal, nice goody bag. Amazing transition areas, running track, cycling track. Though i wish the swim course would be more across the beach than out into the sea (for example: 25m out, 250m across, and 25m back in) because i, and other children and teenagers do not like to swim in the sea where you can not see the bottom.
“Negative:arriving to AD no indication where to go where to park, police or other ppl involved in organization on the street,didn't had clue where is the start and where to park. Next to the transition, where the kids arrived from swimming and where they started to run,was a tall lady was more arrogant than polite and was more busy to eat her apple than to give the indication to the kids in which direction to run out. Trophy or medal for the 1st 3 finishers would have been nicer than waterbottle”
“I think this is a fantastic opportunity for kids.”
“This is a great experience not only for my daughter who raced for the first time but for all of us in the family. A very active, fun and healthy way of family bonding. We're so glad we encouraged her to join.”
“As much as I enjoyed this event I was disqualified. I dropped my chip at the start of the bike ride. A steward found it and gave it to me. He said everything was OK and not to worry, it wasn't a problem. I believe that rather than having a motor bike leading the bike riders, it would be better to have a cyclist in a bright green jacket, an adult triathlete. I was made to continue my bike ride, losing vital minutes as well as a top three finish because of the race marshalls instructions.”
“Pre Event-Parking -(Not knowing Abu Dhabi center) Could have been informed prior of road closure- maybe in future signs to show car parks or map directions via email.
Course- Just after change over, more direction to show where to run the course - may be more marshalls at this point.”
