Hi team,

I just want to say what a super, super, super well run event it was yesterday. So well organised, really lovely routes and everyone was so friendly. My first proper Tri and I loved it! Huge thank you to all involved.



I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the event today -very well organised and very friendly staff and volunteers. I was met by a smile first thing this morning and the last person I saw as I drove out also gave a friendly wave. Small things, cost nothing but make a difference!!

I'll definitely be recommending it to others for next year!
