“Very smoothly organised - I did no know the running track which is quite nice actually; is it accessible also outside events or is it private?”

“Fantastic event - Really enjoyed my first Duathlon. Well organised, great location and a friendly bunch of participants. Only other feedback to help improve for next time, As per a couple of other comments, the bike turn at 12k could have been wider. ”

“Great Location - Great Race. - Really enjoyed the location and everything about the race. Much better than the 7s location. Full praise for the event organisers and especially to the volunteers, without them we would not be able to enjoy such events. Keep up the great work and hope that we can come to the same location again. Thanks.”

“Great event at new track - The run off road was lots of fun. It made it more interesting with the views of the lake . As always the support from the volunteers, families and other competitors was great. I had a few runners pass me but offer support to keep me going to the end. Just need to make the water station at the end more visible and offer an alternative to water. Great work Race ME team. ”

“Check for obstructions. - The spot on the rack given to me #77 was right in front of a short lamp post which offered very little room to hang my bike. Cost me a few seconds at T2 just to avoid dropping Till's bike next to mine. Everything else was okay.”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 01.02.2015
“Hi Ron, When setting up the racks we looked at every position to ensure all bikes could hang from their saddle without obstruction as all the light stands were in the middle of the racks. Results were posted online within 3 hours of the race finish. AF”

“Fabulous! - Really well organised as usual and lovely atmosphere. Interesting to be running out in the desert for a change, great venue :)”

“Loved it - Thanks! - It was great to mix it up a bit on the run, since coming to the UAE I have run exclusively on roads so that was good. It was really hard keeping my head tucked in aero position as the views on the bike were so great. The organisation was super slick and the marshals were 100% on the ball. I was really impressed with the other users on the course, they were much more understanding than I might have been! Thanks for a great day!”

“Extremely well organised and great fun - The new location added to an already great formula. The marshals did an excellent job of keeping the event safe even with the other casual users on the course. Looking forward to the next one! BTW - names on the bibs are a really nice touch.”

“Great event - really well organised - Great to see this event growing Bike course was great - wasn't a problem having the regular users on it. Run course was a bit uneven in places but not amajor problem. Overall - love it”

“Turn around for cycle - Maybe lay something on the ground for the cycle turn around point(12km). It was very tight and if you went off the road it was sandy either side. Other than this...a fantastic event- well done! ”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 30.01.2015
“We did have plywood and rubber matting and both the bike turns to widen the circle for turning. AF”
