“Very well organized event. - Looking forward for the next one.”
“ 表彰について - 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。”
“More spread out water stations:( - 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!!”
“Enjoyed it ^_^ - Had a great time :D”
“Great Day out with good support - Please ensure the water you give finishers is COLD.”
“Next time I hope better - I didn't enjoy the event that much (800m splash dash) due to the change in time, etc, but I guess this wasn't the organizer's responsibility.”
“No need to turn up early - No need to tell competitors to turn up 2 hours early only to bake in the heat with very little shade and water. ”
“Showers - 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
“Last minute changes in start time, no refund - 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.”
“Excellent - It was nice experience and had nice experience to meet RIO 2016 olympic champion Sharon Vn Rowendall and got lot of motivation , Thank you Abudhabi swimming Festival 2016.”
“Do it better - To award younger groups first, Better awards for first three places.”
“ 気持ちよく泳げました。 - 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。”
“Well done! - 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. ”
“Nice event - Very good location and very well organized. To be repeated.”
“Well organized - Well organized ”
“A good event except for pack collection! - 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. ”
“Excellent venue, fantastic atmosphere - 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.”
“Great event - 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.”
“Ｔ 楽しかったです - 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。”
“Excellent family event - Great day with family and friends. One of the best events n AD.”
“Very good experience - Really enjoyed the event, this is the first time and I will definitely be joining again. The Emirates Palace course is fantastic and they there are huge number of volunteers.”
