    Many thanks for a top race today, I had a great time and can think of nothing that would improve your event. I was particularly impressed by all the Marshalls, all very positive and really added to the experience.

    Calvin Wickman

    Thanks for a splendid, well-organised but relaxed event.  I thoroughly enjoyed it, especially not having to do a run. A special thank you to the marshals who were chatty and friendly throughout.

    Alan Crossan

    All the best, and thank you for the brilliant event.

    Martin Godden

    Firstly congratulations to you and your team on a fantastic event. This was my first go at a triathlon and I have to say the organisation and people involved could not have been more helpful and welcoming. I will definitely be attempting a few more and recommending this event to my friends.
