8.2 fun for the whole family Leone Edwards · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
8.4 Great event in beautiful location · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
10.0 Very good event · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
9.8 It was a wonderful experience Johnson Ocampo · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“It was a well organized event. thanks for this experienced. maybe next time, it would be great if the race distance would be indicated on the medals. :) over all, I had a good time on this race specially the support of the organizers which I also met on the next race on the same day at Westin. Two thumbs up.”

6.6 Beautiful event, marshalls could improve · Participation 4 times I would take part again Yes

“Gorgeous setting, beautiful weather. Organizers could do a better job of making sure that those who have finished the race do not stand on the course or get in the way of people still running. Also, some marshalls were on their phones and not paying attention to runners at all. I know they're volunteers - but they are supposed to be directing us!”

7.5 Staffing Mannerism · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes

“The event was good. We really enjoyed it. Albeit, staffing mannerism needs a lot of improvement. When dealing with children, wording is key and having a high EQ means you won't send a child away in tears. One staff, in particular, was unaware of the event protocol and she had a major chip on her shoulder. For her sake, I won't mention her name, even though I would really like to. Perhaps management could arrange an event for their staff to compete in to further enhance their experience. ”

“Its still little warm at this time of year but the scenery at Emirates Palace with a great swim run course makes for a great Aquathlon race with lots on for all levels of ability. I've always really enjoyed this race.”

9.5 great race Beshoy Maher · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
8.2 Great venue, everything went smooth Pedro Gomes · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
5.5 Running Route, marshalling and finish needs help Amanda Lonsdale · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“I registered for this event on the day that registration was closing. When I arrived at the event, the team had no knowledge of my registration. It was then sorted on the spot and I was giving a number and a timing chip. The running route was poorly mapped out, nowhere near enough cones or marshals. I lost time finding my way. The wooden bridges and the marble pergola were very slippery, not good when running in wet trainers. Timings all wrong. Apparently I took 7 hours to finish swim!!”

9.5 Well organized. But running route needs to change Nuha Luqman · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“Overall, All was well organized as expected and exciting event . But the running route should be more safer. Running on 2 high elevated widen slippery bridges is not a good idea. Because the runners were wet from the swim the wood on the bridge was extremely slippery, and not suitable for running. I slipped twice landing on my knee, and got a bruised swollen right knee and ankle, and will be missing this evening’s westin run as a result. Pls change the route, other than I really enjoyed it. ”

9.3 It was a good competition Yuichi Uemura · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes

“It was good to be blessed with the best weather. It was supported by the best staff. The scenery was good, too. I can't participate in the competition of December, but the competition of March participates again. I thank staff.”

9.5 Great way to start the day Heather Gorman · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“Another great event. Thanks. ”

4.8 Upset coz of registration process! Petr Celis · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“Me and my daughter were registered, but we could not find us in the list! Than nobody was able to tell us what to do. Eventually we got chip in last moment. Than it was full stress to arrange transition area, to catch briefing...”

Comment from Premier Online - 27.10.2017
“Sorry to hear you experienced an issue at the event but do note that the online registration process is Premier Online; whereas the Organizer has full access to download in real-time your registration data for use at the event with on-site check in and chip distribution. These are 2 different entities. We hope that your 'online registration process' wasn't really as disappointing as you rated it.”

9.1 Great event, good location and orgsnisation · Participation 4 times I would take part again Yes

“Well done, staff helpful and route very clear! Steve did a great job on the mic! Good atmosphere really enjoyed it. Maybe double check results before presentations to avoid mistakes - but problems sorted out quickly! ”

5.7 Thank you to all volunteers supporting this event! Cordula Ressing · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“The finishing point was not clear for the run. Also the start was not clear for the different waves. I almost missed my own start as I didn't hear the announcement and there was no map or poster indicating the routes for swimming and running.”

8.9 Perfect event!! Ibrahim El Hassan · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“Very entertaining event but marshaling should be improved:)”
