“Great event and super weekend away destination. A little extra directional signage at the roundabouts and at the start of the run course would be an easy improvement. Great breakfast! Hands down the best bike course on a short course I've ridden in the UAE. Will be back!”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 29.10.2016
“Thanks Jonathon, this is great feedback and we can certainly add more signage - especially at the start of the run course. We look forward to seeing you at the next event.”

9.5 Fantastic,well-organised event,highly recommend it · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
9.3 Great event, course, atmosphere, prize-giving. · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Very nice to have the breakfast afterwards in the ball room. Swim location was brilliant. Nice to have hills in UAE to cycle up! Was a bit dodgy when cars were reversing out of the parking spaces along corniche while we were cycling past. The bike racks in the transition definitely have potential for improvement. Great event. Thanks for organising it! Highly recommendable!!”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 29.10.2016
“Thank you for your comments and yes, we agree with you regarding the bike racks. We will definitely be improving on this. We look forward to seeing you next time. :)”

10.0 Great Organisation Zeina Hage · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“This was my first time participating in a triathlon. I was dreading the cycling part as I am used to indoor cycling only. The organization of the event was top notch. The big inflatable monsters in the sea made the swimming part so easy. The organization of the roads and especially the roundabouts was so safe that I did not panic for one second. The organizers were really friendly and cheerful which made the whole experience memorable. I would definitely participate again.”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 29.10.2016
“Zeina, thank you for your comments and well done on your first event!”

“Beautiful scenario”

9.3 Very Well Organized · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
Edited on 23.10.2016

“This was one of the best-organized events events I've been to. I addition, the scenery on the course was outstanding, and the hills on the ride were an added challenge. One small improvement might be to separate the outgoing and incoming runners by setting up cones or at least indicating which side of the sidewalk to take: I almost collide with people going the opposite direction.”

8.6 Very nice race, loved the bike run Stefaan Van Waes · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe
9.1 Great event... need more water Lisa Scoots · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“This was my first time taking this event and enjoyed the course especially the bike route. My only criticism is towards the lack of water out on the short course run. The water stations seemed to be set up at approximately 500m and 1.5km from the finish, perfect for the super sprint but left those of us on the short course without water for over 3k. It would have been good to see a third station down towards the short course turn around point.”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 29.10.2016
“Hi Lisa, Well done on your first race. Thank you for your comments and your point regarding the water station is a valid one. In future races, we will retain the first water station at the 1 km mark and move the second one out to the 3 km mark. This will ensure that you have water approximately every 2 km.”

8.9 Great event and well organised Alan Gayton · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

Comment from the Event Organizer - 29.10.2016
“Thank you Alan, it is always a pleasure to see you at our races. We look forward to welcoming you back for a third time.”
