All was perfect but medal is very poor..doing Triathlon it's really hard work so medals should be proper heavy metal but this wood one it's not really impressive

Only thing that would have been better was if there was some way of collecting your bike after the sprint race finished. Had to wait around for about an hour after the finish to pick up my bike so we didn’t clash with the Olympic race. A plus was the rolling entry to the water - much better that the mass start.

I've done a few triathlons now and I must say I really enjoyed this event. It was a fairly small event with probably less than 200 competitors in total but perfectly suited to the venue. The rolling start meant I had time to get myself fully prepped right up until starting and therefore the swim was never chaotic as there was plenty of space. I would suggest that the course was possibly a little short as I had a big PB but it doesn't matter as everyone is swimming the same course and I swam well comparatively.Transition was immediately on exit of the water which made it all nice and quick then out onto the bike course. I was initially concerned to hear there were no marshals on the bike course but there was no need as it was well signed. I thought the bike was great, I'm not a strong cyclist and when they said it was undulating I thought it could be a slow one for me but it wasn't. The roads were in very good condition with some fairly fresh tarmac in places. The climbs were never too long so you could stay in the big ring and grunt it up and plenty of flat and rolling terrain to stay in the drops/tri-bars and get some nice momentum. Again, the run sounded like it could be tricky with an extra loop somewhere on 3 of the laps for standard distance but once you were out there and did it the first time it all made sense. The marshal at this point was very good, clearly shouting out which way you needed to go. You had a short section of run through a field and the rest was on road, all virtually flat so pretty quick. Add to this I camped on site and with a start time of 8:30 it was all very leisurely pre-race with no rush. I thoroughly enjoyed this event and would highly recommend it.

I really enjoyed it. Having a rolling start made the swim less chaotic at the beginning which helped me to get a PB. Although the cycle was a little hilly I still thought it was a quick route, and I got good times on everything. I'd definitely recommend. Transition was nice and close, and it's all in a great setting.

Good event and nice venue but the run course was no where near as long as it was supposed to be and directions weren't entirely clear which caused a bit of confusion. Overall a great day though!
