Lots of fun”
“Wonderful amazing place for race ”
“Thanks a lot I did have a great experience loved the track it was very easy to navigate
I do strongly recommend new tri athletes to try this race if there are want to try jump to 113 distance ”
“Very good event overall and will do it again. Good organization, course support and nutrition were great. Appreciated the flat coke on the run course.
Only 2 issues: one roundabout on the bike course was not well protected and traffic entered it. It was resolved after one lap. Also, the bike course was short by 2.5km per loop (5km for 76, 7.5km for 113). ”
“Well organised & delivered event. Transition was very well policed & controlled as was the dvent itself.
Very enjoyable & highly recommended.
Very professional serviced event.”
“Well organised and security ensured no car entry”
“Would be nice if you can allow the racking of the bikes the night before and distribute stickers with the number for the bike and helmet.”
“Great event, well organized, ran to time and great course. Bike leg was a bit shorter than anticipated but otherwise all good. ”
“Better than IM Dubai! Sad to think that the wonderful relaxed, well-organised race was marred by theft. But still 9/10!”
“Amazing Triathlon weekend with family and friends and beating my PB by 40min. Absolutely loved it and the support was amazing ”
“Really well organised event with simple easy to follow instructions and rules. Really enjoyed.”
“I visited this venue serval times in past and was quite excited about the new distances, 113 and 76. The organiser didn't disappoint this time either. The event was well organised, with clear markings, many marshals to provide directions, and sufficient water and nutrition on the cycling and run course. In the future, if they could close the traffic at the roundabout where we had to do a U-turn, it would be great. One of the best triathlon venues and events in UAE. ”
“Swim course was very nice
Bike course was 4-5 km shorter!”
“Well run event, a great location. Highly recommended. Hoping this remains a key event in the UAE schedule.”
“Loved the support stations and how they gave out chilled water and hydration throughout the event.
Course was good but the bike course was short by 6.5K.
There were a few instances of drafting but I couldn't see any referees on the course.
“Please improve signage on bike and run.”
“Great tri, why not next year planning a full IM distance option too?”
“The 113 was a great race! Will definitely be back next year.”
“Thanks to organize this event. 76 was a nice distance to do. please next time be sure on the roundabout there are few volunteers to stop the car. We were stock two times between the car.
Thanks again to volunteer, organization, location, real athletes (those who run without music). ”
“I raced the 76 as part of a relay team. A fantastic offering for a new race distance, and one I will sign up for to race solo. A brilliant concept...so well done to you for bringing this front and centre.
As much as you guys tried to have all circumstances accounted for, there was the issue of traffic entering junctions - of which I was nearly cleaned up by a large truck...literally less than 60cm from going under the front of it. Managed to get moving only to be nearly t-boned by a car. ”
“Good event but should have mentioed the bike course was shortened ”
“Great organization all the way!”
“bike course little confusing should not have wrong way ”
“Excellent organisation, good route, great marshalling, and good transition area.”
“Really enjoyed the Event, but, was almost knocked off my bike in the section close to town (the Roundabout U-Turn Up Hill) and heard of other people that got hit on the bike and the run. Also the Bike course was almost 10% short, Many of the Volunteers were with on their phones or talking into cars when out on course, and although I appreciate they volunteer Safety should not be jeopardized.”
“for a 1st event on these distances, it s a great achievement!! you might think of doing it in Mamzar too ;-)
One detail; on the road outside the island, several cars were on the cycling track, especially during the 1st lap.
Well done overall !!!!”
“Bike section felt short by 3km”
“Excellent event; very well organized. Thanks for hosting longer distances in the UAE.”
