I did enjoy this event- but there were a few things that could be improved.First the real positivesFree and easy parking literally right by the start.Super friendly organisersEasy registration Super informal No judgement for being new and having to ask the rulesReally really pretty courseHonest description in relation to it being challenging.And the not so good bits…..No toilets….There were no Marshall’s on the course like it said there would be- other than a couple of the run legs.The signs for the bike route were pretty poor- they need to look at how these can be made to stand out for next time…..The ‘medal’ was pretty naff- a wooden plaque that didn’t even have the correct month on it is a bit poor.I think it was quite expensive for what you got- given the points that I have mentioned above.Glad I finally managed to try a Duathlon though!
