“Nice Day - Thanks to the org Team”
“For a great cause! Fun event - Loved the fun event and family atmosphere. ”
“Very happy to have participated in this event - The primary opportunity for improvement (and I'm sure they are already aware) was the pre-event registration process. There was a huge queue and ultimately no numbers assigned or way to track overall ranking. While the primary goals of breast cancer awareness and raising funds were achieved, as it was a bonafide race, there's an assumption individual rankings would have been tracked.”
“A good race early in the season to kick off with - Great location, pre race registration on the day needs to be improved as long queues for leaving no time for warm ups”
“Good fun, great venue - Enjoyed the course and venue, organisation at registration was a shambles, that's easy to fix so I hope it doesn't dissuade people from supporting the charity next year. ”
“Good fun - The registration was awful. Took way way too long and the people registering were too slow and not on the ball. This caused frustration and the event to start late”
“Good event, Good cause, some disappointments - Good fun event to start season. Great spot.
Start time for event stated 6:00am. Got there 5:30 and event organisers only just setting up. 1st race didn't start until about 7:30! Long slow line to check in for those that made effort to pre register. Those that registered on day no delay.
Very disappointed no podium/recognition/prizes for 2nd & 3rd place (I didn't get those places so not for me!) for all event categories. The youth especially love encouragement. Spot prizes better used for this.”
“Nice experience - Event for Great Cause ... Breast Cancer awareness program. ”
“Not as enjoyable as before - No email before the event to confirm partipation and timing etc. Also there was a massive que to register when arrived in the morning. There was also no timings for the race which I thought was very strange as I wanted to see if I improved my run / swim from the last time I did the event. I would not do it again if there was no timings”
“I would do it again - The joy of doing these events is the atmosphere from the beginning to the end. I dragged two guy friends down to do the event who were dreading it as they had never competed in swimming before (both personal trainers) - they were raving about it all day and were so pleased they completed it. Well done to the Ignite team!
My constructive feedback would include moving the registration somewhere with more space, maybe away from the MC? And a timer at the start/finish line to check our time.
“Racing for a good cause - The start time of race was delayed due to poor organisation at registration. Maybe next time have a few rows for different alphabet letters to speed up process. However once this initial hiccup was overcome the rest of the day went smoothly. Thank you for great initiative.”
“Fun fundraiser - Great swim and run for all to get involved with, irrespective of level of fitness or ability.
Pre-race registration requires some attention. The event has grown considerably so the start/finish area might have to be distanced from the crowd milling around the entrance to the beach.”
“Poor organisation; nice location and a good cause - Good location. But poorly organised. Registration was a shambles. It started late and there was a single queue initially with people unsure where to go and what to do. Delay was caused by everyone having to write their name, phone number and email on a piece of paper - information already held. Result = late and rushed start. Worst aspect was absence of safety briefing for open race. V poor. Also buoys far too small and impossible to see in the water. Learn from Tri Yas - v well run. ”
“Lots of fun! Get larger shirts - Shirts were TINY. The large was basically a small. TINY Sizes.. when I asked for an xl, all gone!
Too many people standing around next to sign up, and collecting shirts. split up those booths”
“Good cause but a few improvements needed - A good event for a really worthwhile cause but unfortunately registration was a little bit disorganised. The pre registered queue was longer than these registering not the day. It would have been nice to have water on the run too. I know it was a short course but the sea swim was hot so some water would have been appreciated.
Loved the family, party atmosphere though and great to have raised so much money too. Will be back next year.”
“Morning registration poorly organised - Lack of communication before the event. Needs staggered start for open.”
“Great event and for a good cause! - Great event and for a good cause however on the day registration was poorly organised but once the race started everything was good!
i would do this event again but would hope to see the on the day registration better. ”
“Lack of water on run - Long hold up to sign in at the event, no water offered during run”
