  • Did the Olympic in 2017

    You get what you pay for. A low entry fee so don't expect much. It's a good job a brought a swim cap with me! Did get a medal and some water at the end to be fair and would go back as I know what to expect now. Weather was rough that year (2017). Swell was massive with one small buoy to aim for. There was a boat and a few kayaks though to follow and was definitely an experience. Plenty of people not spotting signage and lack of enthusiastic marshalling (possibly because of the poor weather).
  • Did the event in 2017

    I entered and took part in the 2017 dualthlon at West Bay (10k run, 26k bike, 5k run).The race briefing explained that the signs were easy to follow and there were maras halls out there directing us in the right direction. How wrong they were! We were also told that on the cycle route that at every right hand turn we were to put our right foot down otherwise it was instant disqualification.  The 10k run was a farce, it equated to 11.5k in total. I got lost as the signage was terrible and there were only 3 marshals (2 of them in the same field) along the entire route. Granted, it was a beautiful setting, however in a race scenario you don't have the time to appreciate natural beauty. You're just keen to finish! There was a water station at 5k and that was it for the entire dualthlon race!The bike event was even worse. The Marshall who stood at the end of the harbour did not point another competitor and I in the right direction, so we ended up getting lost within the first 0.5 mile. The Marshall was far too busy looking at visitors to ensure he did his job well, if at all. Once we thought we were back on track, there were no marshals to ensure our right foot turns were carried out and the signage, again, was useless. The only event which was relatively well sign posted was the 5k run, however this consisted of a lap of two fields which even I can do without signage! At the end, there was a small stall with cookies and bananas for post-race nutrition. Not exactly what you expect after 2.5hrs of competing! Sadly, I have written on Beyond Events Facebook page with a brief overview of the above, telling them of my frustrations and my comment (and proceeding comments from other competitors) has been deleted from their page. I have since emailed them requesting a full refund and surprisingly I have not heard from them! I urge anyone NOT to compete with Beyond events as their organisation, marshalling, signage, race briefing, rules and overall set up is by far the worst I have experienced. Unfortunately they're not doing themselves any favours by deleting negative comments and not responding to emails. It clearly is not a well run company. This race was NOT worth the £35 entry fee.

    Organiser replied:
    Thanks, but i'm sure your aware we have responded to your emails and as was explained in those emails , you managed to miss signage and as a result ended upon the wrong route (Where clearly there would no signage). Also as was stated you cant win first place if you don't complete the entire route, hence why we have had to relegate you to last place, we didn't want to do this but to be fair to all those that completed the correct course it was the only option. As for the post race nutrition, this was in-fact the feed station for after each element of either the triathlon or the Duathlon, and did in-fact have, bananas, cookies, nachos, energy drink and water, this was done as we are trying to encourage new people into the sport,and they not have brought any race nutrition with them, this isn't something you would get in many events at all. But we will take your comments on board and try to use them to improve on what was a great event for the Majority.
  • Did the event in 2016

    registrartion was easy, race briefing wasn't teh best we don't know road names etc. Swim was fine, marshalling & signs on bike course were easy to follow, the run marshalling was nearly non-existent with people running their own version of the route, nice finish though.  I would do the event again as it's close to home, nice touch with childrens scooter race.

    Did The Big T Triathlon Olympic Distance yesterday in the blazing sun! The swim was in Trowbridge leisure center and was very well organised and ran very smoothly. Following the swim was a short run to a nearby tennis court where transition was based. Onto the bike with was a 2 lap course which was mostly fast and flat with a couple of slight inclines but nothing too energy zapping. Transition was well organised and ran smoothly.The Run course was an ‘out and back’  (twice for the Olympic Distance) and to be honest was a pretty boring route although the original 2 lap route was changed at the last minute due to the recent amount of rain so the organisers couldn’t be blamed for that. Local support for the event wasn’t too great and I could of done with a bit more support in the heat but the marshals did their best to try and keep our spirits up.The medal & finishers t-shirt was nice and all in all a good day out and it’s a triathlon I would definitely consider doing again

    Loved Cardiff Tri - completed as my second Olympic distance. Registration day before was nice and easy, good set up of stalls to grab some clobber and we got socks, a cow bell, foam hand and energy bar on sign up. Race start was delayed due to buoys not being set up, but only 10mins or so. Swim goes off in waves at 5 mins intervals and are mixed genders (not what I’d seen before) but was fine. I had issues navigating the swim but I think that’s my poor sighting rather than the course. Transition was easy to navigate and the bike course was 3 13km laps, so ran slightly short at 39km. It was fast and flat, saw one nastyish crash the other side - but I think they caught the turn too quickly. Run was 2 laps over the barrage - very exposed and hot but I love the views of the Bay here. Ran short at around 9km which was quite frustrating as I was pacing for 10km but ah well, the massive crowds at the end and name check as I crossed the line was pretty epic. Nice medal too.
  • Did the event in 2018

    i was doing the Olympic distance.The event is centred around Cardiff Bay and in particular the Millennium Centre, outside of which is the large transition area. I picked up my race pack on Saturday afternoon, which was stress free and also had some free merch for the kids. Staying in an air B&B appt on Sat night meant the shortest walk to racking on Sunday morning ever. Racking was quite precise, with marshals being very on the ball (not a complaint, just an observation).  There were quite a few confused newbies, nervous enough already and it was a good job there were quite a few others, myself included to help them get organised, but actually this gave transition a relaxed feel overall. The swim start is a short walk, but far enough for the use of flip flops if you have supporters at the start or disposable towel slips from a hotel trip. The swim is in the calm of the bay and it is a lovely swim. There are not a lot of marker buoys so the field does spread out quickly. The bike course is closed roads, but the road surface is rough and there are a lot of turns. I completed on a TT bike, but might consider my road bike next time, as I think with the handling and acceleration out of the corners, I would be quicker. The run is a super flat out and back affair, with two laps. I loved the view running on the barrage and was really able to get the legs going. There are a couple of narrow pinch points on the run, so be polite and people will make way for a speedy runner. The run is exposed, so if the weather is not good be prepared, not an issue this year. The event was very well supported (this years weather might have helped) with the locals getting very involved.The organisers athlete tracking app is really good for your supporters and gave accurate splits on the day, in real time (quite a surprise given some out there).In summary a really good Olympic distance event, in a great location and well supported. Well done AAH Events and Cardiff for keeping it closed roads.
  • Did the event in 2018

    I signed up for this September 2017 and this will be my first Olympic. I’ve heard good things about.   Flat bike and flat run. Online registration was easy. Collection of packs the day before (and I think the morning of) and a walk through the mini expo was easy. Lots of freebies with the race pack (cow bell, sponge finger, gel). Race day, easy to get to and park. Tranistion was large and easy to set up. Race brief was ok, a little hard to hear and follow what they were saying about the swim as the buoys where not our yet. The race was delayed due to safety people where not set up. Wave one was in the water for awhile before they could start. Swim was calm. Trainsition was easy. The bike is flat, three laps (you need to count them). Some of the road is rough and nothing picturesque about the bike. Good for support as it’s lapped. A lot of drafting exspecially when the sprint competitors were on courses. Next trainsition was easy. Run was two laps. A water station farther down the course is needed. Spectators were in the way on the run. It needed to be tapped off and marshalled better here. Finish chute was good. Food and drink after finishing had a good selection. Medal was nice. If you want a tshirt you need to pre order  or buy one at the venue  No changing or showing facilities. Support was good. Lots of races after the Olympic so the crowd is still there. Being in the bay, lots of food and drink options post run. Car parks near. I will race this again. Value for money, my option as it’s closed roads. So it’s worth it.

  • Did the event in 2017

    This is the second time I've done the standard distance at this event, and had a great time despite a below par performance! Organisation was first class, the course was scenic and well signed, the marshals were very helpful and enthusiastic, and the medals and tshirts were excellent. Great value for money too. Having done many events with other race organisers both large and small I can safely say that BustinSkin are there with the best.
  • Did the event in 2017

    I arrived at 6am to register after a 2hr drive down from Bristol. I'd only had 4hrs sleep the night before due to a family BBQ, still this wasn't to stop me enjoying both my Nieces celebrations and my first sea-based event. Parking in the college was ok, a 10min walk to registration, although they did run out of free-parking so I had to pay for parking, which wasn't much, but the machine didn't take credit cards and I didn't have any cash, so I had to solenoid the app and pay via that, which took no more than 10mins. I'll ensure I have cash for future events. The weather was dull, but dry, no wind and the sea looked so calm, it was more like the lakes I regularly swim up in the Cotswolds. Registration took no longer than 2mins, bike racked before 7 and the race briefing went ahead for the middle-distance swim which started an hour earlier than the classic, which started at 8am. There were a few locals out to spectate and of course the classic/Sprint athletes who were ready to start after the first lot had got underway. It was nice to watch the first wave start, with enough time to change into my wetsuit and attend the briefing 10mins before the start time. A quick and quirky briefing (it did feel like a local event, but very well organised), we were on the beach, a quick dip to acclimatise before getting back out for the countdown...we were away. A 1.5km course, clockwise from the beach, around the buoys and back was pretty straight forward. There were no more than 130 swimming the classic with me. The water was a little more choppy out at the far buoys, but the lakes have been worse, so it wasn't bad at all, no sea sickness which some people say you can get when swimming in the sea. The salt water wasn't that bad either as I don't make a habit of drinking it

    Once again Activety Wales put on a really good race, the atmosphere at their events is brilliant, they always get tehlocals out to support. The course is a tough one with some steep climbs on the bike and run but the beauty of the Gower scenary easily distracts you from the tired legs!A great value race and one I'm sure I'll be back to do again.

    Organised by activity Wales who are used to doing some pretty big events so the organisation at this event was top notch. The setting is beautiful. This event manages to maintain the feel of a small friendly triathlon but combine it with expert organisation. Even the rain couldn't dampen the marshals and spectators spirits.

    didn't have a chance to register Friday evening sonatas flapping turning up, but it was all made very straight forward with little stress, breifing was nice an In depth which was appreciated as I didn't have time to completely go through the race pack with a fine tooth comb. Enjoyed the race as everything was laid on very clearly and efficiently. Volunteers were superb and encouraging which made the event even better as the weather conditions weren't great. Really enjoyed, thank you guys

    1:The day was great however having to go and pick your pack up the day before was a pain......2:The biggest thing for me was the colour of the buoys in the water, they should of been yellow, red, or orange and not blue/purple as they were very hard to see while you are swimming!!!3:The water stations were very close together which didn't make much sense cold of done with one more water station.

    I had to make a extra trip to Marlow to pick up my race number. It could have been sent in the post and it seems it was possible to pick it up on the day. It was an hour round trip.

    Enjoyed the event. Great lake swim, good transistion area. Nice route on the bike, roads were quiet, although on lap 2 I did wonder if I had taken a wrong turn as I hadn't seen any signage for a while.6 laps of the run was a little monotonous and narrow in places making it difficult to pass others, or let other runners past. Also a few nasty undulations, rabbit holes, exposed roots etc. on the edges of the path that could have caused a nasty injury. Although some had been marked out. But made the run a little more intresting.Would definitely recommend the event and hope to do it again next year. With it being run a number of times over the season its a great way to benchmark your progress.
  • Did the event in 2018

The course itself was not too difficult for a first-timer which is why I'd like to return to do it again next year!It may be useful to state when the halfway mark or three quarters mark has been reached. Thanks Guys!

    This was my first standard triathlon having done a few sprints and I loved it, I was buzzing afterwards.The swim was great, stunning scenery on the bike and despite the 6 laps the lake path was fun - although running is my weakest bit. Transition is well-located and only a very short run out of the water (something I struggled with at Bowood House). Minor gripes: The bike course could have more signage and especially out on the main road bit, markers could be more frequent. It's not traffic-free and the road past Kemble airfield gets a bit hairy with trafic overtaking at speed. Otherwise it's a stunning route. Transition is a little cramped. The run is a slightly uneven trail run, which laps 6 times although it is thankfully flat and great scenery around the lake.Overall it was an excellent event - well-organised and friendly in a cracking location. Well done.I'll definitely be back next year.Nick
