I would take part again
9.1 Really enjoyable! Keith Ryan · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
9.1 Love this event · Participation 6+ times I would take part again Yes

“RaceME surely knows how to organise events ”

8.4 Well organised event! Paul Yates · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes

“Would like to see the giveaway improved - especially if the participate completes all 3 races (T-shirt was quiet poor quality, IMO). I enjoy the event and understand some of the constraints (i.e. hotel, cost, etc) but would like to see something a bit different or extra in each race bag...makes coming to each event a bit individual. Just a suggestion!”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 27.02.2017
“This year saw us think outside the Box and offer something different in the RACE BAGS, as in previous years you received the same item (a visor or cap) for all 3 races. In races 1 and 2 we gave away a souvenir towel and for the last race a 100% cotton tee shirt. Next year we will come up with something different for each race. Whatever goes into the race bag has a cost attached to it so we must be careful to manage expectations, as in reality people pay for a professionally managed event.”

10.0 Great social Tri Matthew Woods · Participation 6+ times I would take part again Yes
Edited on 27.02.2017

“Have raced this one a few times now and would rate it as the best Sprint Tri that Dubai offers. The social aspect really brings the Tri community together. Swim course is in calm waters, bike course is well managed & the run course allows for spectators to cheer you on as you start the run and again at the halfway point. One suggestion for next year is to possibly look at a league table / spot prizes for those who complete all 3 races. Great work Race ME.”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 27.02.2017
“We are already thinking of a few ideas for next season - which would produce an extra race a grand finale (including Roy Nasr Memorial Triathlon as the first in the series).”

9.8 Short course tri gets no better than this ! Mark Wharton · Participation 4 times I would take part again Yes

“End to end fab event - its the details, the camaraderie (many debutants including myself last year), the setting, the breakfast, the free massage - well done team and volunteers!”

10.0 A great atmosphere and suitable for all abilities. Elaine Nettleton · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes
10.0 Great race, great location Paul O'Shea · Participation 6+ times I would take part again Yes

“As always a great event from start to finish, race pack collection is so easy having it on your bike rack. The only thing I would say is the traffic management could be better inside the hotel complex, really difficult I know but maybe have the more experienced triathletes not competing at them Marshall points instead of at the swim exit, run 2nd lap point etc. Thanks”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 26.02.2017
“Thanks Paul for the feedback. Good points about experienced triathletes on hotel inside points. AF ”

6.8 Very nice venue · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Really enjoyed the race please prevent trucks and cars to enter the hotel main gate at the same time as runners and bikers come in - cars and truck could use the marina entrance instead”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 26.02.2017
“Thanks for the comments. Unfortunately we cannot close the roads for the event - plus sending traffic for hotel via marina is not possible. Thankfully at this time of the day, the traffic is very low and with the placement of marshals then we manage the flow of vehicles to maximise safety and allow for a great race.”

8.9 Enjoyable, well organised Kieran Stone · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“Should offer a cheper package without the extras, such a tshirts etc.”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 26.02.2017
“Thank you for your feedback - The breakfast is the business the hotel gets out of hosting the event...they are a business and need/want a commercial return. Opting in/out of b/fast, medals, tee-shirts is not feasible and would not lower the cost of delivering a quality event.”

9.3 Great organisation! Konstantyn Shyshkin · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
9.3 Friendly yet sporty race Mathilde Roubille · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes
7.7 A good event Jawad Azeem · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes
8.6 Best organized race of the series Lars Mogelberg · Participation 5 times I would take part again Yes

“Good job, guys! This event seemed to click on virtually all points. The start organization was much better, perhaps due to a slightly smaller field than usual. The changed transition area was perfect and the sandy run was much easier after some weeks of rain. In spite of the nippy water, the wind and later the rain, the weather conditions were ideal for this Dane. I will be back next season. Thanks.”

7.5 Ideal intro to the Tri World Marcello Grasselli · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“For sombody like me that is fine tuning into the triathlon, that is the ideal format ”

9.8 Great organization Mark Parton · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes
8.9 Decent and well organised Oliver Weir · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
5.0 Last race should be special, not skimped · Participation 3 times I would take part again Maybe

Comment from the Event Organizer - 26.02.2017
“I see you have done this race 3x now.....I am perplexed by your comments as all the races in the series are delivered exactly the same way and to the same high standard - not sure where you thought we had "skimped" on this last event. Feel free to contact me, Andy via email to discuss where you feel this event "let you down" as a 5/10 is out of whack with with consensus. Thanks.”

9.8 Great race series Barry Woods · Participation 5 times I would take part again Yes

“Never fails to deliver a great experience. Doing this event as a team gave me the opportunity to stand back and observe the organizers, volunteers and spectators and everyone does an amazing job in making sure all race participants have an enjoyable and safe race. Great to see so many new faces amongst the usual suspects. Looking forward to the next series already.”

10.0 Perfectly organized event at a beautiful location Dagmar Reich · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“There is absolutly NOTHING to complain. Many kind supporters, very clear route signals, funny moderation, generous trophees for first three finishers of every category, fanatstic breakfast and amazing location.”

10.0 Great experience Vladimir Milosevic · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“This was my first attempt to triathlon. I had no problem finding my way around because briefings and pre-race leaflet were detailed enough. Timing was impeccable but without any pressure. Everything on course was well marked by signage and marshals were there on every doubtful turn. Location is beautiful. Organizers and participants were all positive and supporting. Really outstanding experience and I'm glad I decided to do it.”

9.3 Just great :) Syed Zain Ul Abidin Banuri · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes
10.0 The best organised UAE short distance triathlon!! · Participation 4 times I would take part again Yes
