“Age group issues in results - Age groups seemed to be mixed up with the timing. Red Bull should not be given in Childrens race packs!”
“Poor organisation - Starting time delayed by an hour, without informing the participants beforehand. ”
“I didn't like the organization. - I couldn't get my timing even after the race with 3 days.
After the finish line it was very bad to go from the middle Isle and not to meeting my parents directly.
Due to the previous race taking longer time, we were kept on hold standing for long time with no shades. And it was hot.”
“Good event but winner's medals to be improved - - Winner's medal should be different than finisher's ones
- fruits should be provided
- event pack collection should happen at the same time for both kids events
otherwise nice atmosphere”
“Strong field and great races! - Badly organised medal giving, leaving the kids stood out in the sun .
Overall racing was great but some near missed on the bike leg due to the differences in speed between the different ages.”
“A very nice event but poor result service - The categories for the Junior triathlon event got fully mixed up: on the 12 -13 years old female category, 2 of the girls were actually 14. So 3 years were considered in that category: kids born in 2004, 2003, and 2002.
And the other category which was for the 14-15 years old, only got kids born in 2001.
Frustrating for the young athletes.
The medals for the podium were exactly the same as the ones given to the finishers. It should be slightly different at least.
Otherwise a very nice event”
