9.1 Very well organized event. Subha Datta Chowdhury · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

8.6  表彰について · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“とても楽しく参加できました。しかし、各年代ごとに表彰をしてほしかった。そうすると、その表彰が励みになり、また来年も参加しようと強く思います。”

6.4 More spread out water stations:( Namrata Ranjan · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“Lack of water stations throughout d event was really bad. After a mile challenge dehydrated & exhausted I had to walk all the way back from changing room to single water station. It was really surprising tat to see how volunteers guided u to station but refuse to offer any water with pack of bottles next to them. After resting a while only could I could head for water. With mails hitting inbox to stay hydrated throughout event looked very funny & ironic after this experience..still great Show!!”

8.6 No need to turn up early Joseph McMinn · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“No need to tell competitors to turn up 2 hours early only to bake in the heat with very little shade and water. ”

6.6 Showers Ana Stumpf · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“Event was in a & star hotel beach, with golden rubbish bins and NO showers!!! That's basic after swimming in the sea full of oil from the boats etc... I showered in the marina with the boat hoses. Appreciate if beach showers included. Thanks for reading Ana ”

2.7 Last minute changes in start time, no refund Blair Hoover · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“At 4pm on Friday I recieved notice that the race start time would be moved 5 hours earlier, from 1:30PM to 8:30 am. This change at such late notice meant we were unable to participate. A consolation race of a shorter distance was offered instead of a refund or credit. This exhibits very poor planning on the part of the organizers. The reason for the change was given as "unexpectedly high" temperatures, even though the weather was normal for this season and the temperatures predictable.”

6.8 Good · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
9.1 Fantastic event well organised nd great for the fa Geoffrey Martin · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

8.4 Nice event · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
7.7  気持ちよく泳げました。 · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“ それぞれのWaveにおいて年齢別に表彰があると、次回も参加してみたくまります。例えば、300mWaneでは、10歳以下の部・11から12歳の部、500mWaveは、12~13歳の部・14~15歳の部、800mWaveでは、15から35歳の部、36から55歳の部、56歳以上の部などに分けて表彰してほしいです。”

8.2 Well done! Alexander Whitfield · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“It was a great event in a fab location and well organized. Helpful staff and easy to identify. Perhaps a water sponsor could offer free bottles to keep families hydrated throughout the day. ”

9.1 Very Well Oragnized! · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes
7.0 Nice event · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Very good location and very well organized. To be repeated.”

8.9 Well organized · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“Well organized ”

7.3 A good event except for pack collection! · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Being instructed to turn up TWO HOURS early (which for us involved a very early start), when the pack collection didn't open until 1.5 hours before the start was irritating. No need to be there until 1 hour before; it is hot to sit around in the sun. ”

7.7 Excellent venue, fantastic atmosphere · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“Great event! Only slight nag would be the late change in start time for 800m and being told to arrive 2 hours before race start, which ended up being unnecessary.”

8.9 Great event · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“I was glad the 800m was shifted to 8.30am. I think it is better to have all the events completed in the morning. Otherwise we were going to have to hang around all day - kids would have got hot and tired. So in future please have the events in the morning, so adults and kids events are close together. Great event look forward to next year thanks.”

7.3 T 楽しかったです  Yuichi Uemura · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“とても気持ちよく泳げました。皆様に感謝しています。しかし、前日に時間の変更はあまりよくないです。人数の把握がある程度わかった段階で、連絡がほしいです。来年は、また参加します。練習をして参るに出場できるよう明日から練習します。”
