A great event. Gets better each year. Extremely well organised - on a par with (or better than) Ironman events, but with the added advantage of being able to register and rack all equipment an hour before the race start and not faff about the day before. (Although if you do want to register the day before then you can do so).Logistics for parking is good - a short walk to race registration and setup.Nice friendly/personal atmosphere to the event, but without losing any professionalism with regards to organisation.Swim is easy to navigate - two times around the permiter of the lake around the big red bouys. I'd recommend shaded/dark goggles as one side of the lap sees you swim towards the sun. However this isn't essential - I had non shaded goggles and still managed to swim in a straight line - but shaded goggles might have made it easier for me. The lake is a bit shallow in a couple of places, however 'it is what it is' - it's the same for everyone - and it's only a couple of places. I was happy the temperature wasn't too hot and therefore wetsuits were optional as I swim much better with a wetsuit :)Bike is flat. Ideal for a PB. Route is very simple. Again, 2 laps.Run is also flat. The route is a three times 'out and back' route with three aid stations - which actually means 6 per lap so a total of 18 opportunities to have a drink and/or jelly beans or other multiple choices of energy. I must also say that the ladies on the middle feed station on the run were fantastic! Extremely supportive as I was struggling on the run.Overall, a great race. I didn't quite have enough energy for the run so room for improvement for me.I've already signed up for next year. :)
Really friendly, great atmosphere and a great triThis was my first half (first proper tri to be honest) and it was a really good experience
It’s a nice race but really unfortunate the swim course is a letdown. Lake was so shallow at places that people were walking and unfortunately I ended up doing the same over slippery stones as it was impossible to swim. Bike lap was fine, sections of the road got quite busy with traffic and got stuck behind cars but the windy course adds extra to the challenge and definitely makes you work hard to get to T2. Run was well stocked with aid stations and as the sun was out that was very welcomed. Unfortunate there weren’t more spectators and somehow it felt even less than last year. I enjoyed the challenge but have to admit the swim has most likely put me off returning there next year which is a shame.
A Well organised and run event. Marshals and helpers on aid stations were fantastic and made a very hard day a lot easier. This was my first half distance race and I will definitely be back next year. The lake is a little shallow in places making the swim difficult but the bike and run courses are fantastic and both super fast.
The race was set in a beautiful location. Although 5 marshalls did not turn up on the day the event did not seem to be affected. Getting into transition to set up was easy as was registration. The lake was very shallow in places which meant my hands scraped on the floor. I don't remember a PA system at the finish which would have been a nice touch and not many spectators turned out, which of course is out of the organisers control . My biggest gripe was with plastic cups. I'd be happy to pay more to enter for paper cups to stop adding to the plastic waste. A big deal was made about not littering on the course and this seemed somewhat contradictory, especially as it was very windy on the run. Overall a fantastic race.
A great event, with a flat and fast course for both the bike and the run. It's well organised, with really friendly marshals. I'd recommend it to anyone wanting to try triathlon for the first time, or a new triathlon distance, or for experienced triathletes looking for a PB.
Great race for a PB! The cycle route and run route are flat and very easy to navigate.The swim was enjoyable although the lake is a bit shallow in places.
