the race organizers did a great job supporting through the day. ”
“Always a well run enjoyable race, thanks”
“what an amazing triathlon
it was really well organized and made safe for Covid 19 and a great bunch of people racing.”
“Too much expensive. Results available only after prize giving. Prize giving too long”
“Great event, 10/10. Really impressed how the organizers managed to put on such a good event despite the on going regulations. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
Only criticism would be I felt bad for the slower finishers as the route became blocked with people collecting bikes, bags etc and got in their way. ”
“It was a great event but they messed up my time. ”
“Really enjoyed the race. Cheers”
“Well organized event for the first tri of the season. Speakers at the breakfast and prize giving needed to be at the back as we couldn’t hear. ”
“Always an amazing race!! Really well put on especially during these times, thanks RaceME”
“Very well organised and run event. My first triathlon and everything worked well. Finding my route from car park to transition in the dark could have been a little smoother and maybe a big board with timings and a map displayed at the event wouldnt have gone a miss but very minor comments on what was a very well run event.”
“Super well organized. Especially considering the COVID situation everything was very well secured. Just a bit complex tracks”
“Unfortunately the assistants who were there to guide the participants were not having enough information and many times gave wrong information.
For the new participants, nobody was there to give proper information, rather many were so arrogant when we ask for the details / support.
Need to improve a lot.”
“Well organized event. One of the better managed bike legs on a small course.”
“Glad to be back racing.
Social distancing procedures managed very well
very clear briefing
Great to be able to watch the next day as I missed the original broadcast
Great event ”
“Bike route was a badly designed too many people on a short And narrow course . At some point could not over take the riders ahead because of the density .
But thanks for organizing a race to bring us back in to the game .”
“Everything was fantastic !!!!
Thank you very much.”
“Everything was great and staff were very helpful. This was my first time to do a Super Sprint at the JLL and I didn't realize I had missed the Super Sprint U-turn until I saw the Sprint U-turn. This caused me to run an extra distance and lose time. On my 2nd lap I saw the sign for the Super Sprint U-turn. Maybe for the next event, the sign can be more prominent (or someone actively showing us)? The lady running in front of me also missed it. Thanks,”
“Great job! Enjoyed it very much! ”
“The organization is great, but the course left something to be desired. The four laps of the bike made it really hard to get any momentum. The run course was so narrow and twisty, with 5 180-degree turns, that it made it hard to settle into a pace. Kudos to the team for pulling off a strong event during COVID times.”
“really really enjoyed . thank you”
“Great event. Very good and professional organization, preparation and communication before and during the event. Was my first TT and was easy to do it with the instructions given. Definitely will come back. Just some improvement points: water in plastic cups for the running is not effective, would be better to have longer courses to avoid many short laps and the counting, more info for beginners regarding the content of the bag and the use of each article.”
“A brilliant event, will be doing more”
“Very Well organized event as always. I expected there to be challenges given the situation we are all in but it was handled very well and it was great to see not just the athletes and the organizers but also the entire community supporting this. Great event to be part of in Dubai ”
“Very well organised event despite all challenges. My first race and already registered for my second on the 6th of November.”
“You need to sort out the water stations ”
“Well organized event by a top class team. ”
“I did not like the organization. ”
“Great event as always, superb organisation by RACE ME. Volunteers were excellent! Bike leg had a few pinch points due to numbers out there, frustrated by one or two wannabe 'elites' becoming impatient with slower riders ruining their bid for the Olympics. ”
“A great and well organized event. Fantastic venue and crowd. Felt very safe in the current conditions. ”
“a wonderful event but some cyclists were not sure whether to stay to left or to right of lane to allow for safe overtaking Super organisation otherwise though and an excellent breakfast to follow look forward to the next one”
“Well organized event despite all the regulations. Thank you to your staff !! ”
“Everything was super nice and well organized dispute all the new regulations due to COVID.
The only part that was quite tricky for me was the cycling. The course was way to crowded to be on a TT bike safely.”
“ Very good organization and atmosphere ”
“It was super organized. ??”
“Great event as usual.
Only feedback is about the age groups not being as per registered however assume that was due to numbers. Not a big deal ”
“Best one yet. You all had so many obstacles to overcome with covid restrictions and you did it so well. Much better signage. Amazingly organised. Lovely volunteers. One thing you have no control over are the aggressive male competitors.... who are dangerous and daunting. One guy was so close to me yesterday when I slowed down his shoulder went into my mid back. He came off. I didn’t. Aggressive cycling. Otherwise. Well
Done to you all. Awesome event. Loved it. X
“As usual, well organized, however, this time counts different since a new and different strategy and logistic had to be put in place to cope with the challenge imposed by the pandemic situation.
Well done guys!”
“Excellent as usual - The start by waves was really good and allows a much perturbed swim. The measures for Covid are well done and implemented. We feel safe. Nevertheless I was wondering if the positions in the transition were not disadvantageous to some competitors.
Overall, a nice event which is a performance by itself considering the ongoing restrictions ! Well done”
“An incredible race - Amazing!!!! Loved every minute - I think I was grinning the whole race! So happy we are able to race again!
Absolutely glorious morning!. Beautiful weather, incredible venue, perfectly organised race and 500 lovely supportive triathletes, a fab breakfast - if Carlsberg made Friday mornings!”
“Run course should have panels with distance on to guide us. The boxes numbers for T2 are very hard to recognize.”
“Extremely well organised. Great free kit, amazing breakfast. Could not improve in any way.”
“I liked the event very much and I’m super happy that it happened this year. Only one thing In my view was a kind of dangerous. The bike course was to narrow and crowded with the number of participants and the different level of riding. Everything else was extremely well organized and handled. Thanks again for a lovely morning with a beautiful community.”
“Thoroughly enjoyed this race but the bike lane was very narrow and the end turn very tight causing a lot of build up before we turned. Saw a few near accidents just waiting to happen, and a lot of drafting because of limited space.
Otherwise fantastic day! Well run especially taking into account the current climate. Breakfast was yum! ”
“Great event, well organized in difficult times!”
“Great event and brilliantly enthusiastic staff.”
“In future a seperate line for disabled people
Other than that an excellent system with covid etc ”
“10/10. To get this race off the ground was a huge task in itself in the current state of Covid that the world is in. Honestly, take a second to understand what must of taken place behind closed doors to get permission to have this race. RaceMe events can hold their heads up high with how the day unfolded from start to finish. Huge thanks to sponsors and volunteers.
“Great race organisation, including applying COVID-19 safety measures. Thanks.”
“Great event really well organised. Breakfast not the best and very limited but understandable with the current situation.”
“It was highly organized. However, the organizers are a bit rude”
“Excellent event again by the Raceme Team. With all the COVID regulations, the team did a phenomenal job - thank you!”
