“Arrangement is amazing but price is expensive ”
“Really well organised and good first triathlon ”
“Amazing organisation. Everything went super smooth, thanks for that. Only thing I didn't like on the bike course were the constant speed bumps - but as you can't do anything about that - there's basically nothing to complain about :) Thanks!”
“I was a little bit disappointed not to find any pictures of me for the event”
“The event was well organized and the environment super friendly. I wish the bike parking had more space between the bikes and that there were more water stations along the running path. I was also disappointed when I went to the website to check the photos, looking forward to seeing a picture taken from the lady who was probably in her 70's and was right behind me. She was probably the last one to arrive and I think she was such an inspiring athlete! ”
“great event - well delivered and good experience for the athletes”
“Nice location, excellent covid measures and great organization! 100% recommended!”
“well organized, glad the event could go ahead under the current circumstances”
“Great event, really well managed and very enjoyable, look forward to the next!”
“Great event as always !
Perfect venue, very well organized.
Would suggest the reduction of plastic for future events (goodies included) and why not working with an NGO on the collection of swimming caps (for instance : sea & streams, oceans swims).
Thank you for all your efforts this season ! It’s been challenging but you made it possible. Well done !”
“Overall race is good. Course briefing could be more detailed, but it’s not a problem.
Bike course is horrible because of a speed humps all over the place. 6 ish each way, 12 for one lap, 60 for olympic. A few of them were really harsh. Lots of the lost equipment, nutrition etc on passing them.
In general the race is well organized
“wonderful triathlon event I reqlly enjoyed it?. thank you also for my pictures they are nice ?”
“Well organised and managed. Glad it could take place. The distanced start for the swim is great (even if it was introduced because of something not great), feels much safer (and not just for Covid reasons). Hope it continues.
I hear some triathlons have Olympic/sprint starting before supersprint so that it's not so hot when they finish. I know it takes longer for Olympic to get out of water, but the swim is not that long so supersprint still finish before Olympic. ”
“The water supply during the run was amazing!!! This was just the best. Friendly staff as well.”
“There was always someone to help and constant communication was perfect ”
“Well organised event! But children should not be in the same time as adults. There was tremendous drafting going on or parents abs children riding together so overtaking was impossible. It was almost dangerous. Have a separate course for kids. Also the course was too too short for super sprint. It could’ve been 2 laps of the cycle. ”
“Great event which I will love to do it again ”
“Thank you for the excellent organisation, quick results and photos - what an amazing event!”
“Thank you organisers, marshalls and volunteers for allowing us this race: the best job was yours.”
“RAK triathlon was better managed. There were a lot of illegal passes during the bike leg of the race that were not attended because there were no observers around. It is not just a matter of unfair advantage, but more of a hazard for the riders. I hope these violations will be better monitored and prevented in the future races. ”
“Well organised and really well run.
“Maybe have a 60+ category for our older folks. ”
“The parking was an issue , not too many close parking spots. Also , there were few cars driving on the road while we were on the bikes. ”
“No enough Parking slots
lead to RTA Fines.
If it was arranged with RTA no one will have fine.”
“Great photo coverage, good organisation. But the road isn't made for bikes - there are more than a dozen speedbumps in each lap. Also put reminders to ask riders to cycle on the right. Was a bit of a jungle”
“perfect, well organized and amazing flexibility of the organizer team. Thanks”
“Costly. Price could be cheaper and inline with similar triathlons. Compensation for all the postponements should be considered. Also got given a T-Shurt that is too small so can't benefit from it. Other than that it was enjoyable and well organized.”
“I live in Al Ain. With 4 date changes, I lost out as I had to re-book and change hotels, hiring of bikes and a car to get to Dubai ( as well as 3 PCR tests per trip). Entry fee is high as well.”
“Well organised, routes clearly marked, enough water stations on run and refreshments after the race. Congrats to the organiser! Keep up the good work!!
Looking forward to the next race organised by SS. ”
“i'd only say that announcing for race to start was a bit poor. i didn't know that the olympic has started till i saw some friends missing. it was a bit messy”
“Very well organized and positive opportunity ”
“Just to consider for future events that people with seeing difficulties should have some help with their glasses as they come out from the swim.
We asked and were told it was strictly not possible. Just a small announcement would help in the future to let such people know that you’re making them feel inclusive.
I had to leave my glasses at transition and had a difficult time at the briefing and had to run back with my goggles on to find my bike.
But the overall organisation was great”
“Well organized and nice course thanks ”
“Superb organisation with well trained staff”

In all a lovely event. ”
