“Not sure what happened with the splits for T2 and the run, but my overall time appears to be accurate. The swim course felt VERY long and the long run to T1 was painful on bare feet, but otherwise I really enjoyed the event and the course was fantastic. ”
“Well organised, good communication, flat fast course. Could do with bigger tracks on transition as it was all very tight to get your bike in and out. ”
“Awesome event. The only thing I'd change is making it easier for families to participate by making the registration simpler for groups. Otherwise it was a WONDERFUL time!!! Friendly, fun, beautiful, we'll organized. Thank you so much!”
“The event needs a bit of fine tuning, but overall it is very well organized, and the venue is great !”
“Really enjoyed this event, it was in a good location. The only negative, it was a first come first serve on the giveaways. The event organisers know how many people are taking part therefore there should be enough for everyone, regardless of what time you finish. Other than that, it was great! ”
“Great course, flat, fast, and of best of all, a sheltered easy swim. The marshals were very good, everyone knew what they were doing and cheered us on. Teething problems involved running out of giveaways and timing chips not giving the individual splits, just overall time. ”
“Brilliant venue. Would have preferred a 5km out and back run or a 10km loop, rather than 4 x 2.5km”
“Great location exactly 1 hour drive from Dubai. Good sheltered open water swim location. Transition was far too tight and was a bit of a mess by T2 and after the race. Bike and run courses were well marked but would be better without runners having to stop for cyclists to pass. The Marshalls on the cyclist / runner / driver intersection deserve a medal as it had the potential to go very wrong but they managed it well. Finish chute and race village were nice. Overall a great race, will be back.”
“Everything was good and great from my side, the only feedback that I have is the race pack as it had the bib belt missing inside. I was in a rush so I couldn't notice until I mounted the bike. The fault is mine for not checking the bag beforehand and report it but it would be great next time if you could distribute the race pack a before the event day to avoid this.
“They do not check split times and awarded a medal to a team who did not complete course simply looked at start and finish time. When I questioned post event they said it is because they do not have enough staff ”
“Dreadful food at the finish. Bike racks quite cramped. Water on the bike course would have been nice. Late start, could have been earlier. Pretty good crowds and support. Is there a better way of providing water on the run, like the plastic bag system they use in SA? Very difficult to find photos after the event on inphoto ( goes for all of the events they support). Despite all of the above, an enjoyable event and very similar to the Mamzar events. Hope this is of some use”
“My husband and I flew from the UK especially for this event and we really did love it; a morning we will never forget! It was an amazing location and nice not to be diving into a cold lake for once!
I think the organisation on the beach could have been better and competitors should have been put in pens before they set off on the swim.
A shame that the white t-shirts ran out, especially having travelled so far!
Overall, would thoroughly recommend!
“Olympic distance finishers should get the give aways first and not the left overs”
“Really enjoyed the race, it was good to have so many varied categories and thus opportunities for people to take part. Overall organisation was excellent and we can have few complaints.
I was very disappointed to receive a reject T-Shirt (writing was back-to-front on the back only) from another event. No excuse and no apology, which is a shame.”
“Amazing event, Will definetly be a part of it for next year as well”

“Great event, excellent organisation.
Swim starts could be more staggered and the swim route for the smaller juniors should be in shallower water. Junior swimmers should have been seperated by age ( age group was just too big)
Amazing family event and perfect for first timers .... but would be far better attended in a warmer month when the sea is warmer .”
“Great organization from start to finish! Some points to improve for next edition: add toilets on the run course or near transition or on bike course, swimming category could be split further by age as too many participants in the water at the same time (e.g. during Olympic male mass start), avoid cross of runners/cyclists paths, signage for bike entry and measurement of bike course, ensure enough water on second station of run. Awesome overall experience for all ages, family, lots of fun!”
“Highlight: the final Special Super Sprint (very small people) coming out of the swim and 400 people cheering and clapping....goosebumps!”
“Amazing race with Amazing organization. Just not able to find right now the results divided by category....hope they will update soon! Thanks”
“As someone mentioned before, entrance from bike to T2 was not clear enough, and lack of toilets on the run course. Everything else was great.”
“Fantastic event, lots of fun. Would only complain that there were way too many participants in the water during the swim. Even on the second lap (750m+), people are crawling over each other. When there are that many people taking place, the start needs to be staggered. Otherwise fantastic. ”
“Awesome event! Will do it again ”
“The organizers and the course did well except for a few things: 1. No proper singange and marshalling from the course for the T2 Bike In. Had to find where the bike course ends. 2. Cross traffic of runners and cyclists.
Overall the rest was and awesome experience. ”
“Very satisfied by the event. Very good value”
