Comment from the Event Organizer - 15.04.2015
“Thanks for the "great" comment. I guess "pricey" is an objective comment unless you know the true cost of putting on races in UAE. We strive for safe and fun events and we don't cut corners in providing quality. AF. ”

9.0 My first race in the uae. Claudio Bocca · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Very well organized. I'd like to race in all the series next year...”

9.2 A great way into Duathlon and competition Ian Miller · Participation 5 times I would take part again Yes

“Loved the whole series and this venue is the best. Great trail run in beautiful desert scenery and simple but challenging rolling bike course out and back to solar park. The only fault is marshalling of car park at end of bike leg - cars need to be completely stopped unless clear of incoming cyclists and an extra marshall provided.”

9.5 A well organised & fun series. Sheridan Buchanan · Participation 6+ times I would take part again Yes

“It just gets better & better. It's been great to participate in this event from the very first race. Great beginner event for kids & an excellent event for adults to participate in too. The different of locations is nice for variety. The marshalling & organisation has improved throughout the series & there is good communication from the organisers. Only comment was that the kids could have done with some water stations on the run for the last race as it was hot. Highly recommended.”

“Lawrence, results were posted online at12.30pm yesterday. Also at the same time an automated mail was sent from Premier Online thanking people for taking part, and also a link to the results (http://www.race-me-events.com/2014-2015-giant-duathlon-series-race-5). As with all RACE.ME events the results are available from our website. Thanks, Andy.”

10.0 Fab event! Audrey Blincow · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“Fantastic event that really inspires folks to do their best. The enthusiasm of the organisers is infectious and seeing the kids participating with such energy is awesome. Things that could be improved are a little more discipline for the tweens, many threw their bikes down and abandoned them at transition. Consider giving free entry into Dubai Tri as a prize. Love the sharing of prizes giving everyone the opportunity to win. Tx all round for a splendid series of races.”

10.0 Very well organized event!! Sadie Yousefian · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes

“Had a great time for the full series!! Changing the venues made the series exciting, different and challenging !!! Races always starts on time, perfectly organized and sign posted through the course. The goody bags were fantastic and the spot prizes amazing specially when you are lucky winner!! Maybe an idea for the next series would be to have some of the events taking place in Abu Dhabi. Just a thought! ”

10.0 Awesome series and awesome race David Hunt · Participation 5 times I would take part again Yes

“Really great races. Very good give-aways and excellent trophy for the winners. Second place finishers might be slightly disappointed with their series trophies”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 11.04.2015
“Thx David.....as per the series information document publised at the start of the series..."• At the end of the series, trophies (1st place) and medals (2nd and 3rd places) will be awarded in each category of the Age Group Series Grand Prix & Team Series Grand Prix". Maybe they were disappointed they did not win !!!”

“A great finish to the series. Have really enjoyed taking part. Well organised events, great marshals, great goodie bags great atmosphere.
