“Well done and thanks to all the marshals and volunteers on the day to make this a successful and safe event. Good race pack giveaways. At Race 3 there was mention of a schools event - has this developed anywhere? I have a novice 15 yr old too who falls into the adult category... 24K on the bike is a long way for a 1st event and the teens category only goes to 14 yrs... ”

“Hi Simon - We are looking to include schools in the last event on April 15th. There was not enough time to prepare for it when last mentioned. AF.”

6.8 Encouraging and motivating · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Just felt that the adult cyclist and a first timer like me competing in the race, I wasn't as fast as the rest. I came there to enjoy and see how far I could go but was disappointed when I was diverted to the finish line to continue with my second 3k run, so that the Kids could start their race. which I thought was disappointing. I am sure you will find a way to work on this better and ensure that this race just isn't for pro's but for people of all categories. Thanks ”

“Thanks for your feedback. As mentioned at the briefing it is up to YOU to count your laps on the bike and run. The signage on the bike at the end of 1st/2nd lap was VERY CLEAR. It told you to to do a left u-turn for 2nd lap or a right u-turn if you had completed 2 laps. The marshal was communicating this verbally but they have no idea whether you had done one or two laps. Feel free to communicate directly with me via email. andy at race-me-events.com”

“Very much enjoyed the event. My first year competing in Triathlon and my son wanted to join in despite only being 4. The Duathlon was ideal. The RaceME team were more than happy to support this, I was able (due to free space) to rack my bike with his or leave it by transition and accompanied him around the course. He very much enjoyed the race and commented a number of times "Everyone likes me, they're all cheering". Very well organised and enthusiastic team. Thanks for a great event.”

9.1 Awesome event for every level of competitor!! Antony Litherland · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Two 1st time duathletes (aged 8 & 36) both left the venue with big smiles!! Fantastic atmosphere, course and volunteers! Definitely back for more in March! Thanks to Andy and the rest of the RaceME team.”

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

“There were a couple of incidents with the kids cycle, it is very dangerous as a 10 year old came off her road bike when someone swerved right in front of her. Perhaps there need to be a discussion on lane discipline for kids. There running and cycling over lapped in an area which is not ideal as well. ”
