8.5 Good, can be greater · Participation 6+ times I would take part again Yes

“Great organisation as always. Please bring back the photographers. In the old days , we would get more for the money. Oh well...times have passed and I'm getting old. Everything about this event is good except I'd like to leave one thought. I think 90 quid for a race might be a big inhibitor to further participation. There is tremendous potential to spread duathlon among non-Western segments of the population if the organisers were willing to consider a cut in price. My two cents.”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 20.03.2017
“The cost of entry is aligned with the costs associated with staging the events which is not cheap. Venue, Insurance, Ambulances, Staff, Medals, Trophies, Water and the list goes on. Last year we had a paid photo service. Where possible we take snaps around the race and post pics for free but this is not or should ever be considered part of the entry fee. FYI, we are in UAE and not UK so comparing entry fees is a futile exercise IMHO.”

“Another great race with a good vibe at a good location. This is a great morning out for the entire family, the kids participation and engagement is good to see. This course had a fast run course (the fewer U turns the better) and a slightly technical bike course, which is my personal preference. I genuinely love this series and can't wait to see what the last series race has to offer. Best part of the day is watching the kids podium and them dominating the prize giving, it'll keep em coming back”
