9.3 Great Location - Great Race. Daniel Smith · Participation 6+ times I would take part again Yes

“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.”

8.5 Great event - though results were slowwwww... · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

Comment from the Event Organizer - 01.02.2015
“Results were posted online by 2.30pm through the race-me-events website and notifications posted across Facebook to advise plus email was created in Premier Online at 3pm which was sent by automation at 5:35pm advising of results. We always aim to have results uploaded within 4 hours of the prize giving which gives us time to pack up after the event and get back to office to check all the times etc. Thx AF.”

9.3 Great event at new track Rhys Williams · Participation 4 times I would take part again Yes

“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. ”

9.3 Good race, great location, fantastic volunteers Martin Harris · Participation 6+ times I would take part again Yes

“Very good event now at it's 3rd location - good to mix the locations. Off road running added a new dimension.”

7.8 Check for obstructions. · Participation 6+ times I would take part again Yes

“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”

9.3 Loved it - Thanks! Jonathan Harris · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes

“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!”

9.3 Extremely well organised and great fun Paula Pedler · Participation 5 times I would take part again Yes

“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.”

9.0 Turn around for cycle Aly Wolstanholme · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“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
