Great course, Dorney is a lovely lake to swim. Dead flat run and bike.One bike turn direction was a bit unclear when entering transition from the final lap.Safety pins were not provided for attaching numbers to race belt.

Very enjoyable run and everything was organised well. It would be nice if there was another water station possibly 2 more. Otherwise everything was well organised, and staff were very helpful.

The race was managed very well except there could have been another water station at the other end of the lake... it was very hot and there is no shade so an extra drink would of helped.Thanks

Excellent race, really well organised and great atmosphere. Lovely scenic setting and totally flat Course! Also great to go to a race where you then also dont have to pay more to park and there arent annoying rules about using headphones.10/10 and look forward to doing it again :)

Really excellent event. This was my first standard distance tri and as a beginner I really appreciated the simple layout. I can also appreciate the more experienced triathlete would like that it's an opportunity to push pace and times.

Is there a time limit on the Sprint Triathlon? More concerned with how long it will take for the swim rather than cycle or run. Thanks, Debbie

Hey there, just to let you know that you need to collect your numbers on the morning of the race. Registration is 8:30am – 9:30am (Half Marathon) and 9:00am – 10:15am (5k & 10k). It will take around 15 minutes to collect your number and drop your bag off. The earlier you get there, the more efficient we will be on the day. All the best!
