“Great event! - Amazing event, both for experienced and new triathletes. This was my first triathlon and a very good experience due to the great organization and nice course of this event. Will definitely be participating in others! Big thank you for the organizers ”
“Amazingly well organized. - Great communication and enjoyable event.
Only suggestion, sort out the photography on the day.”
“Great event, Great venue, very well organised - Quite a different and challenging course. Would like to come back and improve on my own performance later on.”
“Great place - I have reaaly enjoyed the place. I didn t know it and i will be back but not only for triathlon!”
“Well organized / Social Tri - Great event as has become the norm for the JLL Tri events at Jebel Ali. The course is great, especially the swim and run elements (nice to pass friends and family halfway through the run). The breakfast afterwards gives everyone the chance to mingle and discuss their races and the new timing app is a great touch. Event staff and volunteers ensured everybody had a great day out. See you in the New Year!”
“Great event not be missed by amateurs and elites! - Recommended event for new triathletes and professionals alike. Prompt results service! Thanks to all the marshals and volunteers! Photos will be shared soon. Nice medal! Good giveaways! Delicious breakfast! Minor improvement the run course on sand could be flattened. Great job Race Me Events! Keep it up!”
“Great event; well orgnaised - Really great event, and well organized from start to finish. The water stations on the run were a little disorganized with not enough people, but only a minor complaint in an overall great day out!”
“Good overall - As the transition set up is very early some form of illumination should be provided to the athletes. Excellent timing live system. Monitoring of drafting athletes should be more strict and DNS, DSQ and DNF athletes should be included in the final standing. Bike course is a little bit boring though.”
“What a breakfast! - Fab organization, great event with a very unexpected breakfast, lovely way to mingle and enjoy the awards presentation!”
“As usual, very nice race with smiling support ! - Loving it for the 3rd year.. but first time as vet so 2nd wave : now i understand the comments about the swim. Honestly I would prefer a mass start. So the ones who like to fight go in front and the other wait behind some seconds and it's fine... it won't change so much on the bike and on the run we know where we are... otherwise, thanks to all the marshalls who are always smiling and supportive. Great event !!!”
“Great event but please fix the swim organization - First of all: you guys put on a great event! That being said, you should really do something about the way the swim is organized. With the 375 m course we are bound to be swimming on top of each other, when starting in waves 10 minutes apart. Furthermore, the turns at the buys are tight in the "intimate" marina. Other than this, all positive remarks from me. Great job! :-)”
“Great day - Thanks merry Christmas ”
“TOO EARLY - Too early, one hour later would have been perfect for the season”
“Nice race but overpriced - Swim course is nice. Bike course is nice because no speed bumps on main road but boring because you go up and down the same road so many times. Also need to have a brighter dismount line as it was barely noticeable. Run course is relatively scenic but footing is poor because half of it is on sand and half of the sand isn't hard packed, especially the far end. Race atmosphere is very nice. Breakfast is nice but probably not worth the additional cost. Overall an enjoyable event but too expensive.”
“Great race and venue - Signage indicating which bike rack contained which number range would help some pre race confusion. Personally did not struggle but saw several entrants wondering around not knowing which rack to go to.”
“Great race - Well organized, nice venue”
“A nice race in your training program - Nice and friendly race, good atmosphere.
Swim is easy -no wind that day- run on the sand makes that part of the race interesting , cycling was fine with some challenges as the road was not closed and some car drivers have limited respect for cyclists
Friendly breakfast in a nice location. Definitely a race to try again and check my training efficiency! ”
“Great event for first timers - Maybe the run part of the course could have been better”
“Good training - Overall a good way to start a Saturday. few ways can be improved, but I liked it, especially the run course...
If you can heat the water and switch of the wind next time, event better :o)
“Really enjoyable event - Good comms throughout, great race feel with a really strong field. Marshalls and volunteers were friendly and energetic but 2 near misses with a skip lorry and a car which marshalls waved into my path at junctions made for an interesting ride. Lovely pork breakfast to replenish the calorie store. The medals and trophies are nicer this season. Fantastic venue to host a triathlon. Thanks to all involved.”
“Great Race and well organised - Much better organised than a couple of years ago. well done.”
