    Did the Sprint in 2019

    Gorgeous bike and run routes. Loved the Tri but felt it lacked some crucial organisation. You can't rack bikes or enter transition until 20mins before your start time, which is a little frustrating. If you have a later time it means hanging about and tight rack space. The car park is huge so not sure why transition zone wasn't bigger. Not many marshals on bike route and quite a few people came off bikes due to slippy roads. Swim was hectic, lots of people didn't stick to overtaking etiquette. I feel like the event needs more volunteers! Despite this I thoroughly enjoyed it, very friendly atmosphere and lovely routes.
