Did the Super Sprint in 2021
Overall a great event and experience. Transition area could have been better organised. It became a free for all by the time I arrived (male 50+Wave) . Well organised apart from the transition area lol. But I enjoyed it all none the less.

Did the Sprint in 2021
This was the second time I'd done Dorney, it was great fun and I got a PB which was great. However some things have to change...I was greeted at the entrance to Dorney Court by a white-haired man who said 'Are you here for the triathlon, sweetie?' Err...could you be more patronising?! During the run I saw him again and he said 'Nice going, darling.' Can you please tell your event stewards one simple rule: if you don't say it to the men, don't say it to the women. I'm a triathlete, not 'sweetie' or 'darling.'

Really great course and day! Finding a spot to but your bike I the transition area was tough as individual stations weren't marked. Swim would have been better with staggered starts. But overall great day!

You will have to take that up with Lets do this. That is not the price for a team.

Hi Joe. Please see https://www.votwo.co.uk/eton-dorney-triathlon and down load the participant info pack. Set your kit up in the transition area. Turn up about 1hr 30 mins before your wave start time

No tow floats allowed... If you don't mind times then they let you use it as this can be seen as an advantage. Tbh, you won't need it they got plenty of kayaks, paddlers in the lake looking out for swimmers. So, they will notice if you struggle and need help.
