Great event, second year for me atmosphere is brilliant, really well run. Shame there was no t shirt this year though.
5.0Did the Sprint in 2019
Organisation of the transition area was really good and very clear. The city centre portion wasn’t as organised without enough crossing points to get close to the grandstand finishing area.
3.7Did the Relay Standard in 2019
It is a great race with in term of course, organisation and atmosphere. Drawbacks are the less than social start times and that I’ve relatively expensive (I won an entry spot today so this wasn’t an issue), especially considering no T-shirt for finishers included.
5.0Did the Standard in 2019
This event is really well organised, which is expected from a triathlon that is also a World Series event. Great atmosphere, with everyone racing supporting each other - especially on the run. The crowds were also great, with loads of people coming out of their houses to cheer on the bike and everyone in the city centre for the last 2.5km of the run. Be warned it is a hilly course, both on the bike and run, but if you go up you must go down 💪🏻 Also look at the running route before you start and make sure you understand the city centre area! Would recommend the event!
5.0Did the Standard in 2019
Fairly well organised. Pleasant marshals. Mount/dismount line in a poor position. Crowd support minimal
