The only challenge was the timings for the swimming element of the event were out of sync. Other than that it was a great event and I would recommend it.

The swimming was unorganised especially if you have not done a triathalon before it needed to be very organised & regimented re times.

The swim felt chaotic, previously it was more organised, but the volunteers worked so hard to get us through. The format didn't seem right. Great work by all though, no complaints with the marshalls and volunteers

Hi Brett. The cycle has a suburban start until you are out on the open roads of Wilmslow and the surrounding towns. Hope that helps!
