“Expensive compared to local competitors and international standards.”
“Great organisation, safe and fun. Would be nice to see a change in the medal design. Breakfast was nice and was nice to see the prize giving too.
Thanks to all the volunteers ”
“Great atmosphere, organisation and people. Bike course is a little monotonous, but safe and bike friendly. Run around the grounds was 50 shaded which helps and the swim is perfect in the lagoon. Only slight minus on the photography service was that they missed me on the finish.”
“We are definitely spoiled here in Dubai, being able to regularly race in a family friendly 5 start resort in a perfectly organized event.”
“Another excellent event. ”
“This is the third time I have taken part in this race and again I really enjoyed it. The organization is pretty slick and I think that's also helped by a lot of participants having done the last two races and also being familiar. Marshals and volunteers always do a great job.
I always enjoy the breakfast the most although I didn't like being fobbed off by the hotel staff when I asked for soya milk (which I don't think is unreasonable and when I know they have it in the hotel). ”
“All was very good except that distance and guidance signs on running course wasnt clear”
Any give-aways as prizes?
New finish line and red carpet was nice!
Prize giving in the breakfast area was very good too! ”
“Can't wait for the next one! :)”
“Great morning of racing. thanks guys”
“A Great event and series, that improves each time”
“Excellently organised event. Some minor improvements in way-finding, especially on transitions and directional changes, would make it even better.
Also, if there is an opportunity to display time mid-race, this would be nice.”
“Big thanks to all of the marshals - they did a great job.
Would be great if another race could be held in Feb/March!”
“Really nice, cosy atmosphere to do a triathlon. The course can be a bit confusing for a newby, but the volunteers did a terrific job guiding everybody the right way. Will definitely come back”
“Organisation just gets better and better”
“The roundabout on the cycle leg was an accident waiting to happen. The only marshal did a fantastic job trying to control cyclists and traffic but it was impossible for her to be effective on her own. Where the run course joined the cycle course was too tight. Liked the bags all set out in transition - saves registering and fighting for a good spot. Great breakfast tho expensive for guests. Pity you don't get a t-shirt like you do in the Abu Dhabi events! Big thank you to all the volunteers.”
“Might be personal but just a t-shirt will be a better souvenir than give away we got...”
“This was my first Triathlon and thoroughly enjoyed it, everything was clearly explained so even for a beginner, i knew exactly what i had to do and where to go. breakfast was great too. will definitely take part in this even again. ”
“Sad that it's over till October.
Really enjoyed every second.
Thank you to all volunteers and management.
“Great event, but the breakfast was not up to par, the omelette stations were malfunctioning, ketchup-mayo never arrived on time and desserts were limited...”
“Always nice to start in this well organized triathlon”
“Suggestions: 1. get better speakers for both the pre-race brief and awards ceremony. We could bar hear the pre-race brief even though we were close and also could not hear the awards announcements sitting at the back.
2. It was fricking scary how fast some of the cars were traveling up and down the road right next to the bikers - completely unacceptable. Before allowing traffic to come down the road, drivers should be warned to keep their speed below 40. A Rolls Royce went by doing 80-100 km”
“Very good event, well organised, great breakfast, first class facilities from the resort. Recommended. I would like to hear that the chap was reunited with his missing gear, big downer on the day if not. ”
“Looking forward to the next JLL series!. Thank you”
“I really enjoy this event, it is quick and course is forgiving. ”
“Really enjoyed the JLL races this season, thank you to everyone who had a part in it. ”
“Great event,great organisation, very good breakfast and spécial thanks for volunteers. Only entry - exit of the golf and roundabout are difficult.”
“Really enjoyed this race. Well organised, we'll run looking forward to next seasons events.
Race ME Are a credit to the regions race organisers. ”
“One more in March please.”
