“One of the best racecourses! ”
“It should be an yearly event”
“Well organized event. Thank you!”
“We had a great time, it was a well organized event. The only suggestion I would make is to have more signage for not so experienced competitors. When they bicyclists need to slow down and get off their bikes could be better marked but otherwise it was super! Thank you!”
“Great event overall. Bike transition is too long, and I didn't understand why we were not allowed to ride the bike right away, but rather walk to the gate. Well organized race, good job.”
“Transitions were too long and bike course distance was not correct. Last minute changes are not very good…”
“It was a great race. The mount line and the dismount line should be marked better and not with a fag on the side, but and A-stand next to the road. Non of the volunteers knew where it actually was. Else it was a lovely race, thank you. ”
“Well done. Enjoyed the course. Nice to have more events here ”
“well organised and no. 1 event ”
“Race was good from a venue perspective !
However awards was given far too early. I did Olympic and at the awards I was 4th overall, but ended 2nd as organiser was not on the top. I have asked organiser for a free entry to another triathlon as a compensation...No replies yet.
“The bike run was really nice”
“Thank you for a good event.
Race numbers were flimsy and pulled through on quite a few contestants
The carpet from the beach needed to be thicker, me and my friends have bruised feet as it is basically a rock path from the beach to transition
Race officials were not sure of transition start and endpoints. People were dismounting too early.
“Location was great. Set-up was nice. Single-use plastic water bottles handed out to runners and cyclists along the course were disappointing. It's 2022 - who still hands out single-use plastic water bottles? If London and Xiamen, China (see articles below) can do it, so can we.
Perhaps the marshalling could have been a smidge better. But that aside it was great!
Transition layout and spacing was excellent.
Great course. Good water points. ”
“Congratulation, I love your organization. I would like to suggest to train marchal and other along the course to recognize and report drafting. There are so many marchal and helper at corner or aid station that can easily spot and report. Is not really to punish, I cannot believe anyone want to cheat at this level but for sure would be good to speak with each individual and grow awareness ”
“Good event overall but marshalling could have been better. ”
“The place is perfect for triathlon. However shower are not available”
“Bike mounting could be at the end of transition and not at the gate”
“Second transition/dismount was very confusing. Missed out on a podium place because of it ??♀️”
“Great track ! Well organised ! could have done with one more aid station at the end of the 2.5km run as it was a hot day. ”
“Excellent organisation throughout. Thank you.”
“Great event! Just transitions need adjusting ”
“well organized. a new experience well managed and a great venue.”
“Excellent and well organized event. Excellent venue. Fast track. Good aid stations for the run.
The only thing that could improve: clear marking for bike mount and definitely a clear marking or chalked line for bike dismount. Please organize this event again next April after the Dubai half Ironman. Great job done by the volunteers.”
“Well organised, friendly atmosphere. Just could have had more support vehicles on the course though perhaps. Someone had come off the bike and there didn’t seem to be anyone nearby for quite some time.”
