“ it was great but...Entry fee a bit too expensive .”
“Well organized event. Should have more of these relay events ”
“Entry fee a bit too expensive ”
“Great new inclusive event, hope there will be more next season ”
“It worked better than expected and the relay spring concept made a nice new event. Also I know it is not great for the people finishing at the back of the field but I really appreciated that we did not wait so long for podiums and results and to be able to get home at a very decent time. So thank you for a great event!”
“it was a great event but two points of criticism:
1. It was definitely too expensive. 600 Dirhams for a relay is simply too much.
2. the distance got shorter week after week. From Supersprint to something that was even shorter. That was a bit of a bummer.
Else it was amazing.”
“Perfect organization, speaker, volunteer! Nice formula!”
“Great format! We want more of this and maybe the ability to accumulate points during the year with the same team and have a final result.”
“I can not fault this event. Communication prior to the event was clear, it started on time, organisation during the event was spot on and the presentation was on time. I also liked transition not opening until after the presentation to ensure everyone stayed. nice job :) ”
“Great organisation, great atmosphere, good fun, excellent format !”
“Awesome event please do it again ”
“Really fantastic event. Good concept, course worked well and organized smoothly as always. Only negative would be it was frustrating to see some teams assisting each other in transition - holding bikes ready etc - effectively the same as drafting so you might want to emphasize that next time in the briefing.”
“great organization of the event.
“Very well organised. Really enjoyed the experience.
“Lots of fun, well organised, unique event with a really fun atmosphere!”
“Fun, well organised and a unique event. On the other hand, I thought that it was a bit overpriced for the distances raced though and it was a shame that the distances were a little short- particularly the swim and run. ”
Well put together
Route well marked
Please provide water at the end (run/swim transition)”
“Great event, well signed, staffed, great route, water and snacks great and all done in a timely fashion. Really enjoyed it all for last tri of the season. ”
“Good event but not worth the price. It was far too expensive and I wouldn’t do it again. To make matters worse, the photography was awful and medal very cheap so can’t justify the cost at all”
“Great event, hope to see it as an annual race on the dubai calendar.
Feedback for improvement- age groups on the relays… over 18s, under 18s and an open category should anyone want to do a parent/child race. This would mean that more under 18s could participate, perhaps from 12-18 but also mean that parents can still team up with their child.
Team relay- only suggestion would be to increase the number of rounds they do to equalise race time to those on individual relay ”
“I love photos on same day and w/o charge”
“Loved the relay format. Great event. ”
“Great event, loved racing in a team! ”
