I would take part again
9.5 Change of scenery & great organization & support Hasan Itani · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Very well supported by local municipality and the Oceanic hotel management. Beautiful bike course with undulating and smooth roads. Run is on pavement though, slightly harsh but with a well cushioned shoe it is easily manageable especially it's not too long. Great organization, communication and setup.Thank you ”

9.8 Best course Craig Haldane · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“So nice to have something different especially the bike course being so scenic. Easy location and with staying at the Hotel it makes the morning really easy. Hotel colleagues were great as were all the team who put this together. Well done”

9.1 Awesome course and awesome people organising Ryan Johnson · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

7.3 Good race and course.. · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
7.0 Nice to race in a new location · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“The only problem had was at the round abouts a few marshals stood on the wrong side to direct. The cyclist orange direction signs were good except they needed to have them also directly on the round about as some marshals didn't point in the direction to go. The swim bouys were hard to see so in future if they could be the tall ones that would be great. I had to rely on the person in front as I couldn't see the buoys very well until you were close. Overall a good planned race.”

“Thank you for your feedback and we will be addressing both issues with the next event on the 15th. We hope to see you there! ”

9.5 An excellent weekend that was very enjoyable! Emma Hayward · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Beautiful setting in Khorfakkan. The event was very well organised and ran smoothly. The hotel was very accommodating and I had a very pleasant stay. The course was well signposted and the marshals were good in number and very helpful. As it was the first time for the hotel, it is understandable that there were teething issues, such as confusion between breakfast and prize giving after the race. It wasn't a huge problem and was sorted quite easily. I'm looking forward to taking part next year!”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 02.03.2016
“Thank you Emma, We hope that we have addressed the issue by including the breakfast price in the race entry fee for the next race (15th April 2016) and selling additional breakfast vouchers for supporters prior to the race. We hope to see you on the 15th April. ”

“Only two issues: Road closure and water stations. Everything else was excellent! ”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 02.03.2016
