“Very well organized. With split time recording for the run's and bike would be even better.”
“Looking forward to completing the entire series as the Duathalon Bug has certainly taken hold...”
“Very friendly event. Great for competitors and supporters.”
“My only negative was the vehicle directions/signage could have been better. Took half an hour to find the way in to the parking lot but got there in the end.”
“Great fun a bit expensive.”
“The event was well organised, loads of fun for kids & adults & held at a safe environment. Perhaps the Spotprize part which was supposed to happen at the end but didn't might have been able to be done between the adults & kids races? Also, it would be useful to have been able to have more timing services available such as separate times for the run & the bike for those wanting to compare their times but on the whole I couldn't fault the event!
“Good venue, really well organised. Two children entered in the event and was no confusion with collecting race packs etc. was a little hot by the time the kids started but all parents supported the kids well as did the event organisers.”
“Excellent event. Perhaps clearing of stones on cycle track would be useful!”
“Organization was perfect. i was unable to race this time but my 6yr old son did and he was super thrilled by the experience and has already signed up for the next one.
The Race Director did a great job all day on the mike and getting people involved etc. Perfect chilled weekend race which caters to all levels of athletes.
“Would be even better if we had split times for the run/bike/run.”
“Very well organised event, but maybe another water station out on the run course? Thanks for putting it on, will be racing again!”
“Only one comment: the supporting vehicles to the camel track were driving headway to us w/o lights on nor signaling. I had my looks down to benefit from aero position on the road bike and could run over.”
“Finisher medals would be great”
“Great event, looking forward to the next one. Marshall's were really good at stopping the camels and odd vehicle. Great scenery. Lots of staff around. A map of the course would have been good but was easy once we got out there. Well done everyone.”
“Great venue. Good organization. Great job!”
“Great to see Duathlon brought to Dubai and one of the best events I have participated in in Dubai. Course was easy to follow and the bike course is unique”
“Medal for the kids would be great! ”
“My first Duathlon ever, ultra safe course, and seeing the camels and interacting with their trainers on the bike ride was a highlight. Course is flat, the runs not the most picturesque, but then again, it is in the middle of a desert. Very well organised, course route very clear, good transition area. Also, a great bunch of people.”
“Very well organised both pre-event and on the day - special mention for the course marshals. Would prefer to have seen a diagram of the course before the event as part of the registration information. There were a couple of places where mud on the road and camels crossing impeded the cycling. Overall, excellent - thanks.”
“Early starting is for me very difficult as I am more the late afternoon and evening sporter for my best results, so if one of the occasions in December or January can be held in the afternoon would be a different challenge.”
“Really good event. Definitely do it again”
