JLL Triathlon - Race 3

“Start was a bit 'messy' but otherwise a great race - The announcements to go to the start for the brief were limited which led to the rush and ultimate chaotic start for 1st wave. Pace pack collection was inspired and must have been time consuming so thanks to whoever did it. Swim to bike run was long but personally I preferred that to a long run in bike shoes as not one of the pro types who can attach to bike. Giveaways non existence save a milk/protein bottle with horrible lumps in it so must have been close to date. Overall loved race though!”
“Overall a great event - Suggestions:
I wasn't aware that there would not be a race number 'belt' in the race pack. I also noticed that there were many people participating without their race number displayed, probably as a result of this issue.
Transition was not as good as race 1. The distance was longer from swim to bike and there people being stopped coming out of T1 at the roundabout to allow people into T2.
Also difficult to assess improvement race on race due to changes at transition”
“Great, as usual... - I've done the three this year and will do the same next year. Great location, great organisation. Love it.”
“Great effect by all concerned - Great event - Would be great to see the cycling circuit being one continuous loop and not 4 laps.
Running surface was poor”
“Awesome event! Thank you - Awesome! Thanks!”
“Excellent again - Having the race pack ready on the bike rack was an excellent addition and saved lots of queueing time. Other organisation as good as ever. More than 3 races in the series would also be great, but appreciate it's easier said than done.”
“Great event again - Well organized race and I loved the hanging race packs at the transition area. I personally preferred the bike course last time of 1 long course instead of 4 laps, but I guess you need permission from the Hotel.
We definitely sign up to the series again next year.
Well done Paul, Andy and team. ”
“A great race to start a triathlon career! - The event was really well organised. There was somebody to help you whenever you needed it...not that it was needed that much because it was all very clear. It was a nice short race to start the year and the numbers were ideal. The only unappealing part of this race was the dirt track. But that probably suited others, just not me.
I hope to do this race, and the series again at the end of the year.”
“Big fan of the event - I'm a big fan of the event and think it is good value for money. On this occasion the start was a bit of a shambles, we didn't get any time at all to warm up in the water; the race started with guys still doing their warm up. Not a big deal but maybe a louder warning or some marshals on the beach to get people lined up.
I Must say I prefer the 4x lap course to the 1 20km lap, until the road surface improves.
As I say, good event overall. ”
“Very enjoyable - Put finish back to same spot as race 2”
“Solid event. Good fun! - Race pack pick up was excellent, best yet. The run to T1 was a good chance to dry off for the bike, no dramas. Bike was great although traffic congestion at the entry to the resort resulted in me doing another lap around the round-about. An extra marshal or 2 to assist the flow of traffic would be a fix for next time. An extra marshal to assist the juniors in transition would be excellent. Everything else was smooth. Thanks and see you next time.”
“Good for experience - For my second lap of runing, there was no all signage , because staff cleared singage partly and I lost my way.I went back to starting point and asked guide. I waisted a few
minutes for that. ”
“A great series - A true community spirited series”
“Great event and extremely well organized - Really enjoyed it and extremely well organized, especially the bike racks in transition. Only issue was that the interlock road coming out of the hotel to the roundabout was in really bad shape and difficult to ride on. ”
“Great Event - Dear Race.Me team.
another great event.
Only one thing, i would recomend some ply wood for the bump.
other then that course is great.”
“I loved the bike course but T1 run sucked - I have no problem with a long run to T1 but some kind of carpet would've been nice because my heels were hurting quite a lot by the time I got there.
I really enjoyed the bike course because it was easy to compare how you were doing each lap and it felt like you were racing more. However, I did see one person drafting someone for about 5 minutes and there were no draft busters doing any draft busting. Other than this it was a fantastic event and I would love to do it again”
“Great Event but watch out for the speed bumps - The speed bumps on the course were a bit trying and the run on sand was an unexpected surprise! Great event though.”
“Great Event - Always nice!!”
“All good, thanks RACE-ME - All good, thanks RACE-ME”
“Outstanding - Amazing event, very well organized.
Race pack collection saved lots or Queue time.
Route well marshalled
Aid stations well located
The bike course is a bit windy though :)”
“This 3rd time the set up was smooooooothhhhh - I was happy that the cycle course was back to the 'old' one. if the road out south would have been good then that would be splendid, but until that has changed, this is a good course. the set up with the transition area was excellent this time and the start timely. excellent organization!”
“Great event - The race pack was kept ready with your run number.”
“Great event - I would really like to see the overall results, male and female, for SS and S distances instead of just age categories and the Overall winners announced at the event. A Youth who was only 15 won the female sprint race today, beating all age groups and got no mention or recognition for such a great result!
Shame about the traffic on the cycle route.
Really enjoyable race, marshalls very enthusiastic, everyone friendly. Great atomsphere, lovely venue. Registration with bags on racks very easy.
“Excellent way to start the day - Great environment. Race bag delivery was awesome improvement.”
“Excellent event, organisation & atmosphere - Can we have more than 3 a season. Would love one a month!”
“Great event, great place. Not so good finish - The place, organization, pack collection is excellent !!
I was expecting a better "after race". Some fruit or beverage other than water would be nice. And for the takeaway, you should do something better or nothing (medal and caps is poor)”
“1st timer at JLL Triathlon - Great organisation, well marshalled.”
“Great little course coupled with good organisation - All good!”
“Excellent race getting better - My second time was much easier than the first; I prefer cycling 4 laps of the inner road rather than going out on the main road and I LOVED finding my bag at the bike rake, rather than having to queue to collect it.
A good race, growing to maturity. Well done!”
“A brilliant into to triathlon - Thanks to everybody involved. Really enjoyed the event- can't wait for the next one!”
“Great event - Really well organised and clearly set up. Good informative briefing. I like the staggered starts so it wasn't too busy in the water.
Only complaint quite a long way to run in bare feet back to the transition area after the swim. Could some sort of mats be put down maybe?”
