I would take part again
7.3 Fun and friendly triathlon season warm up! Ben Woods · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Few glitches, but resolved quickly and everyone kept informed. Great support and an easy compact course. Discipline on the bike leg needs to be controlled better but otherwise great fun.”

8.8 It was amazing day for me Abubaker Al Houqani · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
6.5 Overall satisfactory · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Great event for a first timer. Wadi adventure is a great spot of such events. Thanks to the organisers and volunteers. Had lots of fun participating and will definitely do it again. Nothing big but just a point to note for the next event - brief your crew well and have the race packs ready to give away in a systematic way. There seemed to a bit of confusion with too many people behind the desk. Thanks again”

6.3 A great local race Guy Schooley · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Great racing Needs to be cheeper Good breakfast More organisation at the start 're timing chips etc Can we have another one please ”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 11.10.2016
“Thanks Guy, Acknowledge we had some issues with the timing and chip distribution. Would love to come back to Al Ain if we can find a sponsor. It is still the cheapest opportunity for people to do a triathlon in the UAE”

5.5 Great event for beginners Hardie Ibrahim · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Post race breakfast very disappointing. Still awaiting race results after a few days. With the cost of entry, one would expect a race t-shirt”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 11.10.2016
“Hi Hardie, Thanks for the feedback. We sent out an email on Saturday morning and posted results across our social media channels with links to the results. This event is the cheapest 'triathlon' in the UAE at a beautiful closed road environment. here is the link http://my4.raceresult.com/62389/results?lang=en#0_96CAA9”

6.5 Great Start for the season. Natheer Khasawneh · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“First Please fix my name on the result page (Bib 290 Natheer Khasawneh from Jordan) The event was well organized, I enjoyed the swimming, cycling, and the running (even it was on the sand). I was expecting more from Wadi adventures for the supporters, I am not talking about the breakfast, but at least they should have given access post race for at least one hour. Buffet breakfast was a nice touch from the organizer. Support stations and marshals were everywhere. Thanks”

“Simon, Thanks for the constructive feedback. More than happy to discuss your thoughts on how better we can make the event better to turn around your sad face and poor choice of words.”

7.3 Good Fun event, perfect for those beginnig Tri's Russell Evans · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Really good event, lots of fun, decent course! Marshalling and communication was good, slight delay registering at the start and collecting the timing chips - just a little bit more communication at the registration needed to get everything at the same time. Other than that, thoroughly enjoyed the event, and would recommend it to anyone wanting to try Triathlon for the first time! Defiantly come back again!”

6.5 Great event for first time Triathalon · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
8.8 Good to be back at Wadi Adventure Paul O'Shea · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Great event and fantastic location, really nice to see so many young kids taking part. Only point - need a visible mount and dismount line on the floor, just some tape would do. Thanks to the organisers and all the fantastic volunteers, see you at the next one!”

7.8 A nice, friendly, club organised event Bryan Watt · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
Edited on 09.10.2016

“Supportive atmosphere for first time tri-ers like me. I like the bike loops- always lots of other riders around. The sandy-run was a nice touch- more interesting than tarmac. Wadi Adventure facilities weren't so great- no loo paper, soap, broken showers. And come on, give supporters entry into the water park too! ”

8.3 Great for a beginner Carl Agren · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“This was a great starter Tri. It was my first one and I will a lot apprehensive about the transitions and how a tri flowed. This was a great way to start. The event was small and well labeled. Overall I would definitely do it again. The only criticism was that the organization was a little chaotic at this event pack collection. ”

8.5 Nice venue and nicely organised Peter Mueller · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Hats off to the organisers and massive team of volunteers who gave up their time to put on such a great event. ”

7.5 Fun event · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“The race atmosphere was friendlier and more relaxed than other races I've done”

8.8 Thanks · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Enjoyed the event. Appreciated all of the water points on the run and having the volunteers on the corner points waving bright flags. Thanks to the organisers and volunteers!”

7.5 Great event! Alan Gayton · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

8.8 Best introduction to a triathlon event Mohamed Al Hashmi · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
Edited on 14.10.2016

“A great introduction for first timers like my self organisation was excellent and staff were very friendly excellent work many thanks ”

4.0 Seemed disorganised · Participation 1 time I would take part again No

“Plus the breakfast was awful.”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 08.10.2016
“Thanks for the feedback appreciate today may have not been world class standard. Not sure we were that disorganised given no one drowned, no one fell off the bike and no one got lost in the desert run and everyone seemed to have a broad smile on the face crossing the finish line. YEP we had issues with the chips distribution and started a little late which we will work on for future events. cheers ”

8.0 Great event, well organised! · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Great to be back racing at wadi adventure again. Good organisation! Route was clear and easy to follow. Volunteers were happy and helping to navigate. Just be clear how many times the cyclist should go round on the event brochure before the race, I think some people were unsure. Can't wait to do another race here! Thanks for organising! :) ”

3.0 Poor organization with very little staff Russell Van Niekerk · Participation 1 time I would take part again No
Edited on 08.10.2016

“Very disappointed with this event- not enough staff, poor organization and very little value for money. I hope that this event and the people who organized it will endeavor to improve their events 200% over.”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 08.10.2016
“HI Russell, Really appreciate your feedback and happy to discuss in greater depth where you believe we fell short on staffing with 8 water safety personnel, 4 in transition, bike on bike off, 6 on course bike marshals, 8 on the run course and 4 on the finish line. An event guide that was mailed out that clearly set out the course. Where we fell short was on the timing service at the start with a computer and power glitch. Underway a few minutes late, results posted by 11am http://my4.raceresult.com/62389/results?lang=en#0_96CAA9”
