“Great to be part of an event that was so well organised and family friendly, bring on the rest of the series”
“There are a few 90 degree turns on the bike course. The track itself is too narrow and operates on a two way basis which makes it risky especially on sharp turns. My daughter had a head on accident at a 90 degree turn (coming out of the tunnel) with an incoming cyclist (also racing) who ran wide in to her track. I hope some measures are taken to address it. Rest, kids love this race format and are registered for the entire series.

“Very pleased I attended this event, the ease of the race pack collection was bar far the best part closely followed by the general organisation and vibe. This was probably the friendliest event I have attended in the region and whilst I do not have children the events for the kids made this even better! Such a fun family friendly atmosphere, suitable for everyone.
Will be booking more for sure!”

“This was the 2nd year that I have participated and overall it was another great event. Although the number of speed humps spoiled the ride for me and this is my least favorite venue. Already looking forward to the next Race at District 1…”
“It was my first Giant Duathlon, I had great time and I like the race, enjoyed a lot. Thanks . Manuel”
“I really like the event. I've just been scared a bit on the bike as you have small kids with parents who do not ride very straight and I was afraid I would not be able to avoid them.
But I had a lot of fun and I like the running very much.”
“Highly efficient organization as always.
The atmosphere surrounding the whole event is excellent.”
“Very much enjoy these events - as did a couple of my friends completing them for the first time. One comment - it would be good if you could see your race history in one place so you can compare the results and hopefully see improvements”
“Andy and the RACE ME team always put on a superb event and delivered with this one.
Individual prizes for P 1/2/3 overall winners Male & Female would be a nice addition.
“Well organised, safe event with a quick run course and a technical bike course to navigate. Run course is a little shorter than 3km but very quick without having any U turns to negotiate. Strength of the field is even more impressive this season and it's a pleasure to watch all levels of athletes participate. Family friendly event and an amazing way to introduce kids into the sport and keep them active. Big thanks to organizers, volunteers and supporters.”
“Well run and attended event - Speed humps inside of the venue should be reviewed as they put equipment at risk. ”
“It was very well organized and a lot of fun but also quite expensive and because of that I am not sure I will do it again. :-(”
“A longer distance, say 5km/40km/5km would be welcome.”
“Me and my son signed up for the first time in our life to a duathlon.. and the experience, the route, organisation, support, awards, gifts, stuff.. all but really all.. nothing could be better... PERFECT!
THANKS A LOT... will do all the series...
“Not so much in the goodie bag this time - a bit disappointing given the price of the event.
I do love the RaceME events though - always great and the marshalls and support staff are fantastic. Well done.”
“3rd time I have participated in this event and 1st time at Hamdan venue. Absolutely loved it. Race.me are so supportive in their build up briefings before the start. Great atmosphere every time! Well done to all involved.”
“Very good race. Safe and good for beginners like me :) ”
