“Amazing organization. Fantastic ambience. To repeat!”
“First triathlon and absolutely loved it!”
“I always like super sports events and although the heat was so strong, and the run was tough, the whole race was well organized and thank you for Coca Cola!!”
“Great organization, nice venue. Keep it up.”
“Awesome morning thank you so much ”
“Parking tickets were given to people who parked in the second furthest car park. There should be parking marshalls to avoid tickets. If people move cones then how are other people to know. I got a aed 500 fine ”
“The reason of my 5 is regarding the support along the bike course, too many people crossing the road and very few staff to avoid it. It resulted on a hit from one of my team members, then we needed to wait around 20min for the paramedics.
The place is amazing and one of my favourite races however you shall think to have more staff and paramedics on the next ones.”
“For the second time, the swim of the Junior Super Sprint and the Super Sprint is set up in a way that is not safe as the swimmers have to go across each other and especially with the younger kids, there is a high chance they can crash into each other. The 'finish' buoy should be a few meters away (to the 'left') so that the Super Sprint swimmers turn into the beach along the same path as the Jr Super Sprint swimmers are coming in.
In future, you should also consider the timings of the races.”
“Overall a well organised event. Thank you.
The improvement points would be the start. I would suggest either doing a big mass start like most (not in th UAE) of the triathlons or doing waves by level. Yesterday it was a real mess because you have Olympic and Sprint distance starting at the same time, some poor swimmers were in front making difficult to overtake and some good swimmers were not able to go first at the start line.
2. Maybe more photographers would be nice”
“Always great ! Thank you”
“I think it’s better when the swim starts in the water as it’s very tight and too many as a dry start ”
“Thank you for a great day!!”
“Great event, well organized, only -1 for the material of the t-shirt”
“Very well organised. A great experience for my first triathlon!!!”
“as we know in triathlon safety is first
so when I started my bike all kids is on the track so it is very dangerous for kids and for me
“Everything was perfect, except the cycling map (entry points + directions) were not very clear, I would say.”
“Great event; well done to the organisers! ”
“Its a pleasure to come back to this race, its very well organized. I liked the swim route, I like the safety and space on the bike route. One thing I would like to suggest are ice cubes on the run.”
“Well organized. We are regulars in most of SuperSports events. ”
“Congrats! Triathlon is a demanding sport discipline, however, I’m sure that organizing an event like this and now with full attendance after pandemic it’s a more demanding challenge physically and mentally, well done guys and thanks for all the efforts to make this nice experience possible! See you next season!!!! ”
“Great event, really well organized. ”
“Too many roundabouts and speed bumps on the bike ride!”
“Everything was very well organised ”
“Start one wave at a time. Only Olympic then sprint etc. A little narrow between race line and buoys. Water when you exit water into transition. Overall a great day ”
“The best - hidare RECHAK ”
“Having some water supply after the swimming would be nice... same for the biking. So, in other words, more water would be great.”
“It was very nice organising ”
“Overall a very kind and friendly experience. The organization team is super efficient (check in, marshalls, etc). Few comments, though: 1/ the 1st swimming leg was too tight (between race buoys and area buoys), so it was difficult to swim in a very crowdy place. In comparison, the return leg was not an issue at all. 2/ photos are a bit deceptive this year: almost no photo at the swim exit, poor bike photos (either blur or taken from very far). Can be better to carve wonderful memories!
“Brilliant event. My first triathlon and I felt well informed during the briefing. I would 100% do a super sports triathlon again. Thank you! ”
“Was a great event, well organized and good route, thanks.”
“Start swimming in groups, each group has 5 or 8, and every two seconds, the groups move ”
“Nice first event for kids even if the bike ride is tricky for them with cars around. Brilliant staff and orga”
“Swim course was to narrow for all athletes be released at the same time. Swim was very bad the rest was solid. ”
“Always a fantastic event. Well organised and so much fun. Thank you Super Sports.”
“The level of the photo was materially lower than the RAK triathlon. For those who attend the competition alone, the organizer’s photos are the only way to have nice memories of an otherwise flawless event”
“A really good event. Swim was a bit crazy. Need to stagger swimmers more, and have the first turn at least 100m out. More people helping at water stations. Drinks should be lined up during and at the end.
Overall very very good. Bike route was lovely. ”
“It was a little too hot :) ”
“Great organisation as always. My only piece of advice would be to phase the Male Olympic and Sprint start over a longer period. The swim was really crowded.
“The race was great however now that it is getting hot, it would be better for the longer distances to start first. ”
“Bad organization. A bit dangerous for kids specially. Very little signing. The worse was having to wait until 9:30 am to get out of the event area.”
“Just more food after the race. We had only fruits and cola”
