9.6 Great event, well run and relaxed. Delme Waiariki · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

5.4 An average event. Tanya Lee-Parker · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“There was no indication of categories when entering or even announced on the day until prizegiving actually happened. For the amount of entry fee money there was minimal "goodies" and the only prizes were medals/trophies. The event could be a very well run Family event. If there was food stalls, sponsors tents/giveaways/stalls in relation to swimming/triathlon. Spot prizes to those who have not won any placing prizes would also be a good incentive for the "joe-average" swimmer(entrant). Make them want to come back and not get put off by those who are swimmers and are always going to win.”

8.7 Great morning out for the whole family · Participation 5 times I would take part again Yes
8.0 Good all round event Orlando Luis · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
7.7 Slick event, run on time, great Andrew Horne · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“I maybe suffering from memory loss, but I think the race information came out a bit late, and i nearly had to miss the meeting because I had another engagement. Next time perhaps in the early race information, give a guestimate of the time. So the event info said 7am, and my race was 9.30am, and the detailed race pack was only available a week or so before. Not a big complaint - just a suggestion Well done, lovely atmosphere and friendly environment”

5.0 Good location Gary Critchley · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
7.9 All excellent but why last minute races time chang Sharif Badreddine · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Excelllent, would be better if 1-Stick to race timing as conveyed on the site 2- Lessen oil smells in the water 3- Bottle neck at turns”

7.2 Room for improvement but fun Karen Croshaw · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Poor signage at entrance to event contradicting information in welcome email which also said see you Friday which was confusing. Didn't receive all of the goodies that I should have done as I wasn't made aware of them ZOGGS Voucher, Wet Bag etc. some competitors cut corners and were not penalised. Have been unable to find the results online as promised. I did, however, enjoy the event and will attend future events but just feel there are a few tweaks that would make it easier for first time competitors such as myself. Plenty of support in the water which was good. No jellyfish either! It was great you were able to accommodate all levels of swimmer and all ages! Well done :o)”

10.0 Nice race, Well arranged · Participation 5 times I would take part again Yes
8.1 Good event Andrew Hobson · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Phased starting of groups for main event”

9.0 Great racing morning Stephen Dersley · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes

“Maybe there could be a longer swim again? e.g. 2 miles or a 5k?”

9.6 Excellent, but where are results? · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“A well organized, well run event. Only concern is that there is no obvious link to on-line results and/or they aren't posted very quickly.”

9.0 Really enjoyed the event Gail Geraty · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“All great”

8.5 Family Fun Sven Dahlmann · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“I liked the fact that there were numerous distances for all capabilities, and even a fun sprint relay at the end. The mile swim was a good challenge, well marked and plenty of support from the lifeguards in their kayaks. After the swim though, there wasn't much keeping us there besides spectating. Perhaps the sponsors could have a couple of stations out next time, and some space for the kids to play, and perhaps a little kiosk selling coffee and sandwiches.”

9.0 Great where are the results? · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“Great race! It's really hard to find the results though! Please signpost after events where you can get your time from.”
