New experience ”
“ A really great race - well organised and a great course”
“Enjoyed it a lot!, don't know why the Olympic and sprint distances, started so late tho...
“this event was very well organized. it is my third times and never disappointed.”
“Great event, nice location, cycling was the best”
“Well run, nice course for beginners ”
“A coffee/snack bar would have been appreciated - especially for the supporters - as it's a long morning of hanging around if you're in the super sprint!”
“The quality of the Tshirts is not the same as before. I used to received quality shirts from 2XU in previous events.”
“I feel for spectators who are there for 3 hours or so there could have been snack and coffee options, it was extremely limited for them.”
“2021 event, my first race in ages, so i was very keen.
The race overall was good. great fast race.
I was surprised that there was not more room between bike in the transition area though ... given the social distancing requirement these days, i must say i was surprised that the transition was so packed ... and it was concerning to see people not competing, in the transition ...
Bit disappointing by the photos ... none from the swim exit or on the bike for me, and the run ones are ok-ish.”
“Great Job everyone and very reasonable organisers.
Took mime and my sons t shirt after the race and just ask few valid question and handed me the shirt thank you very much.”
“The swimming part could have been better organized. The route should be more straight, the path should be more clearly explained and the launch of waves should be also better.
Also, for the running part, the track was not separated clearly, so non competitors going for a morning walk or jog were disturbing us the competitors. This track should be separated and accessible only for competitors.”
“Very good event organization, I didn't get why they didn't put T-Shirts into the package?”
“Very well organised! Great day”
“Well organized as always by Supersports events”
“Always so casual and well organized at the same time!”
“Very well organized and friendly event”
“My only wish is that it started earlier- especially for the Olympic competitors- not starting until 6:50 makes it EXTREMELY hot by the time the run comes. Start time at 6-6:15 would be ideal.”
“Well organised, loads of infectious energy!”
“Great organization especially with the current circumstances. Keep organizing more events please.
“very good event, very well organized”

“Great race, great morning. Well organised and good price. Look forward to racing again! ”
“Great organization. Friendly staff. Slower and faster swimmers got a bit mixed up in the start. ”
“It was my first time to race here in Mamzar. I will definitely join again. My only comment, i hope there will be additional electrolite drink or sugar source drinks during the run leg. ”
“Well organised but could allow transition open at 8:45 and more goodies for participants ”
“Great event and great organisation ”
“Very nice organization. Keep it up and offer new triathlons in Nov and Dec to avoid heat conditions specially on the run ”
“Good job and specially for the kids one. However Junior súper sprint should leave the water before sprint to avoid small kids crashes ”
“Very well organised, really had a great time seeing all the triathletes racing next to each other.”
“Many thanks for organizing this event, well done.
Only one comment, some non-athletes were on the transition area and despite many polite warnings they decided not to pay attention and stay there jeopardizing the safety of the competitors and the smooth transition process.”
“Excellent race with extremely helpful staff (thanks Anne and Annie) plus very good post race nutrition, a superb experience!”
“Superb event, exceptionally well organised”
“Parents invading the start area and transition area was disruptive .. Otherwise it was fabulous and well organized ”

“A great event, parking was a little difficult but otherwise really well run.”
“Great event, great organization, thank you everyone!”
“Great organization, thank you everyone for this memorable event!”
“Stagger the start for the swim. Sprint and Olympic together ends up in chaos for the first lap. ”
“Well organized event. Good staff. Can Include more goodies or a breakfast post event.”
“Well organized, friendly, great atmosphere - sadly ran out of shirts! Apart from that, excellent day!”
“Well organised and great fun, earlier start would be ideal”
“Great organisation, really nice vibe, in lots of pain today ?”
“experience was great.
The bike rack was too low for bikes size 58 and up. Some of us had to use the handlebar not the seat to hook the bike. Please take this into consideration next time.”
“Good event, could've been animated more, on the start line, the transitions and surely the finish line. For next time, something to keep in mind, cause these will will add to the positive experience of participants. ”
“The event area was too crowded. Bike racking was too tight. In TriYAS 4 bikes for a rack. Results came too late. Nevertheless, thanks for the organization and giving us the opportunity to race.”
“very well organized. wave starts is really appreciated for swimming, makes it a lot easier. plenty of water at the 2 water stations. fruits at the end. really enjoyed the race”
“Swim exit was very narrow between timing buoy. Bike was shorter than advertised. Run was good but distance markers would have helped. Not letting people take bikes out of transition until 9 didn’t make sense. Racking should have been done to put Olympic distance separate to rest. ”
“Swim location was very nice but there were too many bumps on the road, a less bumpy road could be selected.
No respect to rules, and no one was caring a lot of people were drafting but no referee no one was wearing their bibs but to disqualification.
Top few staff non racers were crossing the road but no one was there to stop them or to control the traffic for them this was too dangereous.
Race organizitaion should have been in a posiyion that all staff are in control of all the race course”
“An awesome event to participate in!”
“It could have started earlier as heat was too much. ”
“Results service was poor. I still can’t see detailed results. ”
“Safe, water station was ok. Amazing experience for my first race in Uae”
“Loved it, if was an awesome event”
“A very good starter triathlon. ”
“Thank you for organising! Less people to start with would have been great.”
“Gets better and better each time ”
