    Did the Olympic Distance Triathlon in 2019

    Swim was marked well enough. Transition area could have been bigger (more than enough room). Bike course signage could be a bit more frequent to reassure leaders as to which direction to be heading. Run course signage was perfect.

    Did the Olympic Distance Triathlon in 2019

    Very good pre race info. Everyone REALLY friendly! Great, quick race timings. Two things that couldn’t be improved. Transition area too small so bikes everywhere. Numbered racking much better/safer. Signage not great, eg on bike route not clear which race was which direction. Swim end hard to see- would be better with bug buoy/sign! Thank you all. Oh yes, no race t shirt and few healthy snacks options after but entry fee low so maybe that’s why?
