GRIT+TONIC.com Triathlon: Hatta
72 people have rated this event.
“All went very well, however the swim course in the lake needs to better laid out. Next time they should get everyone to swim outside the string of bouys instead of inside. It was not clear after swimming past the rock where and when we were supposed to swim.
“Very well organized race. I just love this race!”
“Incredible race with a stunning backdrop! By far the hardest triathlon in the UAE”
“Marker buoys for swim could not swim around ”
“What a beautiful place for a tri in UAE
THANK YOU ”
“This was my first Tri, I loved it!”
“It was great to understand in a way how the rate is affected for the swim after the 2.7k run, that made a huge impact on the swim pace.
the hills were great, did my best.
the 5.7k run was a bit of struggle cs of shoulder pain and the bad swim...”
“amazing event, will do it again for sure”
“Please host another hatta triathlon in the 2020 - 2021 season ”
“Great event with nice view to ease the effort ”
“What an amazing experience! Loved every second. ”
“Overall great event and good organization.
Just few comments:
-Circuit not clear for swimming
-In COVD times, I think it was unnecessary and unsafe to have the podium ceremony.”
“From my perspective, the one thing that needs to be improved is the course layout of the swim. There were several buoys marking the extremity of the course which people were swimming around which added considerable time to the swim. There were a couple of boats out there but they were not giving any indication of people going seriously wrong ”
“You should have more water on water stations, and cheering zones at multiple checkpoints”
“One of my favourite events of the season. ”
“Ver good arrangement and well prepared... waiting for the next events (RAK & MAMZAR).”
“Best event so far this year..... even with all the challenges, the great organization made it just that much more enjoyable.
Wasn’t surprised by any turns, everything well market, never felt worried about missing any signs.
Well done ”
“It was great however the swim track was not properly done and it was not clear where to go. I believe it would be better next time to make it straight.”
“Challenging but fun race. Amazing course with some very challenging hills. Some cars on the bike course ”
“Great event, completely different tri. Was organised well. Would have been nice to have a few more cans of coke/refreshments at the finish but that was the only minor gripe. ”
“Water Stations was not sufficient or with enough resources even at the Finish.Felt the Swim course or marking were not at the correct places, there were many who lost directions.”
“Great event and nice place ”
“Freshwater swim was amazing - would be great to finish up at the dam with a jump into the water to cool off after all that climbing :)”
“- excellent race and track
- water supply could be set at the 15th km u-turn of olympics cycling.
- swimming guidelines can be a bit more specific (orange floaty to be passed on the left, yellow floaty to Passed on the right..)”
“Swim course was confusing and lead to people cutting a lot. Not enough guides on the bike course too”
“I absolutely love this event, so well organised and a very different challenge from the usual tris in the UAE ”
