I would take part again
9.1 Very Well organised family event Mark Parton · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“Great to be part of an event that was so well organised and family friendly, bring on the rest of the series”

8.0 Great Event · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes
8.6 Excelent race Fernando Ruiz · Participation 5 times I would take part again Yes

“All Good!”

8.2 Good event Guy Taylor · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
5.5 Make the cycle course safer · Participation 4 times I would take part again Yes

“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. ”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 08.11.2016
“The safety of any race is a joint effort between the event organisers and the competitors. In this case it was another entrant who caused the accident and not the course. We have used this course numerous times without an accident, we heavily marshal all the pinch points - you will find technical courses everywhere in the world - for the duathlon series the challenge is to find courses safe free from cars which I feel we have done. The track is easily able to cope with 4 riders wide (2 each way)”

“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!”

8.4 Great event - well-organised! · Participation 6+ times I would take part again Yes

“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…”

8.0 Great duathlon experience Manuel Serrano · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“It was my first Giant Duathlon, I had great time and I like the race, enjoyed a lot. Thanks . Manuel”

8.6 Very nice event Thea Janne Dothee · Participation 5 times I would take part again Yes

“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.”

8.9 Excellent as always - great event Andy Cann · Participation 6+ times I would take part again Yes

“Highly efficient organization as always. The atmosphere surrounding the whole event is excellent.”

8.9 Excellent example of a well run event. Louren Woof · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes

“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”

9.1 Good Event - Organizers who really care! · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“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. ”

6.6 Yup, all good ! Kenny Grant · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
8.4 Best series in the race calendar Barry Woods · Participation 6+ times I would take part again Yes

“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.”

8.6 Great event, very well organised · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
8.4 Great event - well run · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Well run and attended event - Speed humps inside of the venue should be reviewed as they put equipment at risk. ”

8.2 Gréât organization · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
7.7 Very nice family event Emilia Ohrtmann · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“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. :-(”

8.2 Very well run event · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“A longer distance, say 5km/40km/5km would be welcome.”

8.9 First Duathlon best impression! Yonca Tokbas · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“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... ”

7.3 Always a great event Sara-Lise Harris · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes

“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.”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 04.11.2016
“GIANT got caught short as their container of goodies has been held up which meant no whizzy bits. An AED50 voucher will get u some self selected goodies in the meantime. Well done on your podium.”

8.9 Almost perfect!!! Andi Price · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes
