Adrian Cooper

Can't fault the event, well organised from registration to finish line. Swim start extremely well organised and felt confident with the social distancing. Marshall's all fab and supportive, thanks especially to the lady Marshall at the transition entrance didn't get her name never stopped smiling and encouraging all athletes 


Lucy Kirk

The race was excellently orgasnised and supervised by friendly and thorough marshalls. 100% recommend this event for beginners and experienced triathletes. 


Ciaran Talbot

Thoroughly enjoyed the day. Low key spectator wise because of the pandemic. COVID wise, it felt super safe. Distancing, hand sanitising and masks were all in play and respected by everyone. 

Support staff and competitors were very friendly and approachable. Logistically it was very straight forward, it was easy to see where you needed to go.

I'd thoroughly recommend to families and beginners.
