“would definitely do it again!”
“Weather was atrocious (too windy) - not the fault of the organisers! Everything organisation wise was great. ”
“Great venue and an awesome Triathlon”
“The swim leg was the most unpleasant part of this triathlon. I felt like swimming in a washing machine because of overcrowding in the water, not to mention all the kicking and elbowing as a consequence of the unstaggered start times. There was only 5 minutes gap between the start of the olympic swimmers and the sprint swimmers, so all ended up sharing the same laps knowing that the event was fully booked. Other triathlons allow at least 30 minutes gap between the Olympic and Sprint distances.”
“بطولة ممتازه و تنظيم رائع ”
“Hello - On the results app, am I able to see the winners and / or placings of my age group?”
“Great event, very well organized : Nice staff, many water stations.
Awesome job from organizers !”
“well organized...the swim was confusing at the start and a block of concrete was in the water (very dangerous)
Water stations were well placed. all good”
“GREAT EXPERIENCE!!! My son and I came from Mexico to the expo2020 and got the chance to do what we more like, Triathlon, a very well organized event, the routes are easy, maybe the first transition is to long but doable ”
“Favourate venue, well organised......love it all”
“Very long transition from swim to bike.”

See u at the next race.
“Very well organized and executed. Great for kids and adults alike. ”
“good organization, good experience :)!”
“Thank you for organizing, my kids really enjoyed it.”
“Having distance markers on the run would be useful
Maybe consider Gatorade for hydration as well?
Think you could work on staggered starts for the swim - when you have about 300 people it is too many for the way we started
I had fun - thanks for organizing! It’s a lot of organization! ”
“Another great event guys well done!
Personally Only issue I'm expericeing (being a very tall human). my doesn't sit on the rack. Both here and Mamzar, I end having to negotiate to swap with people to try and find a hgiher part of the rialing. I know it's probalby not a common issue for people, but would it be possible to raise all the bars by 6inches?”
“Great event, very well organized ”
“Really good fun and well organised.”
“Well organised and good course”
“Always so well organised and a lovely event.”
“Nutrition, electrolyte, soda and food must be available along the run course especially for Olympic distance.”
“No nutrition along run course, or even soda and electrolytes especially for Olympic distance.”
“very well organized overall.
couple of minor improvement:
1. I know the map and race info was up by the road but it would be good to have another lot down by the sea
2. a few more people down by the sea ready to answer questions.
overall though it was very good.”
“Great. Only drawback was doing repetitive loops”
“Always happy to be part of this amazing race. Big thank you to the organizers. ”
“Very well organised. A good track. A bigger crowd and more competitors would add more to atmosphere to the event. Otherwise excellent. ”
“Very nice venue, smooth organization !”
“Lovely setting and atmosphere...a better route needed so that cyclists and runners don't cross patchs at the pedestrian crossing...I nearly hit a runner who was allowed to cross”
“The cars next to the road when we run it's very unpleasant.
It would be nice to have music on the transition.
Thank you for the organisation, it was very nice.”
“Great venue and an awesome Triathlon”
“Well organised. Enjoyed the experience. ”
“Just one comment on the swim - must be staggered entry otherwise it’s total chaos . May be also look at starring the Olympic distance at least half hour earlier than all others. ”
“Fixed the swim & run routes Vs last year”
“During the race . I fell from my bike and was injured / bleeding . At the end of the tri I went to see the first aid man who was at the finish line . He didn’t have a proper liquid )betadine or other ..) to wash / sanitize the bleeding and didn’t seem to know what to do … please get competent first aid company if something more serious happens next time . Thanks ”
“1. I didn't feel that transition is secure.
2. I didn't feel safe when road were opened until running is finished”
“Super event with a great atmosphere! Thank you!”
“ Very friendly, good gathering. Good after race breakfast and T-shirt ”
“Brilliant event all round for young and old!”
“All good but for the 3rd time in super sport I got no pictures in bike and run ”
“Terrific event. My only comment would be to PLEASE have some bathrooms available on the course. This is especially true in a country where public urination is illegal! I was dying throughout the run because I couldn't relieve myself. Otherwise, I loved this race and will be back in future years.”
“The organization of the race is amazing. Really well prepared!”
“Good organisation. Much smoother than last year. Course clearer as well with the markings. Finishing area is good and the QR to get quick results is brilliant. Even Barney was happy which makes it that much better….”
“Swim little confusing for Oly distance. Would be good to have some draft busting on bike but appreciate prob not realistic. The sandwiches/wraps in the bag were not good :(.
But... Closed roads are great and overall good”
“Very well organised, great atmosphere and a nice course. Ali a nice food bag at the end, which was most welcome :)”
“Well organised ; nice venue ; good fun and family moments
“The run to the transition area was very long but difficult to get around without a dodgy transition area behind the hotel. Good venue and race. ”
“The swim was very poorly organized. Everyone started at the same time and in the water it was total chaos. Everyone swimming on top of each other. Next time do a staggered start with three or four swimmers every 30 seconds ”
“I think the distances need to be adjusted to match the Olympic format. Swim and bike was a bit more as per my watch and the few people I also asked around and running just under 10km. Good transition area. I think overall very good organization and friendly volunteers. Swim area, bike course and run course nice but for bike could be nice to do a distance with 2 loops max. From swim to transition area at times there were some areas that were slippery. ”
“My son and I loved it! If I may, I didnt put 10 as I believe the security of the transition zone could be improved allowing only participants to enter with race number. Apart from this it was just great :)”
“Well organised, great communication, well supported on the course.
Only negative was the breakfast bag”
“Always my favourite race.. third time I participate.. the organization this year was perfect. There were a few issues last year that I’m so glad we’re resolved this year. Thank you so much for fantastic race.”
“Well organized, route markers could be set out a little better.”
“Great event. Great course. Good fun”
“Gels / isotonic water on route would be great. Otherwise - great event. ”
“Overall great event! Well organised and good route. Would have been a 10/10 if there had been distance markers on the run! ”
“I missed km notification on run course!
Everything else was organized perfectly.”

“Well organized, great atmosphere - amazing day. ”
“Well organized event, great volunteers ”
“Great event and well run. Thanks for remoothe speed bumps”
“Great event, well organised and good fun. Thanks”
“Would have been good to have distance markers
Food was pretty stale
Every one was confused about the swim
Transition zone was not fully carpeted.
More photographers along the way would have been good.
Option to not have t shirt etc (just a wast) maybe guest can choose what they get eg voucher for triathlon equipment? ”
“Great event, well organised, some last min changes to the swim we're for the best but could have been done earlier. Transition was quite far from the beach. ”
“Great event, little bit more organisation is needed during swim start specially during covid times. For the run you need to place the waste bins for the water bottles with more distance of where you take them so you can avoid all the garbage dropped on the ground. Thanks ”
“Great venue and organization . Village at finish line was really good as well”
“Great organization would be amazing if you could had some gels, isotonic drinks in one of the running fuel stations”
It would be great if there was a discount negotiated with the hotel. If this was an option then perhaps it needs to be more visible as I was not aware. Thanks ”
“Great venue, great course. Perhaps the Olympic distance could start earlier. Post-race food definitely has to improve.”
“Super évent !! Bravo
Only one little thing, please continue to work on the quality on indications. We still have some historions during the race due to staff and panels. Otherwise amazing moment !”
“Thank you for a great event ”
“Signs to swim start should be better. Transition was good and staff friendy. Finish area was amazing and foodbag super! Pics also from ”late runner and finishers” would be great, not only fast ones! Aid stations were good and didnt run out of water. Thanks everyone! ”
“Well organized and nice location. ”
“So well organized and we loved the race village. The bike transition was a bit cramped, can it be spread out a little more (space between bikes & walking space between racks?) thanks for a great event. ”
“Great venue, brilliantly organized. Thank you to everyone involved. We will be back!”
“A very nice experience. Thank you! ”
“Very well organized , water every 2 or 3 km
In the run and safe ”
“Perfectly executed, prime venue. Great for family, friends, and spectators as well Loved the food truck park! Event organization was FIRST CLASS!”
“Excellent event and location., thoroughly enjoyed it. Would have been nice to have some distance markers on the run, and more strictly enforced social distancing before the swim. ”
“Great event and great marshaling, much better than last year. Transition was v crowded and all my kit got kicked around. That’s never happened before….. thanks for a great event ”

“AG should be assigned to year of birth as it is standard in global practice. It is not fair to do the AG by birthday day. BTW this is best practice for all the races around the globe....”
