A selection of comments from competitors in our previous events.
"A really enjoyable day, thank you very much. My first Tri and I thought the event was extremely well organised and everyone was incredibly supportive and friendly. I will be back in 2010!"
"I had a couple of friends come up from London to take part in their first triathlon event and they are both already asking me about next years date! I'm sure they will respond very positively given the comments I have heard from them....every day since Sunday.
From my own perspective I thought the event was fantastic. I thought the event was extremely well organised with very friendly officials and marshalls. I got nothing but cheers and encouragement throughout from them all and thoroughly enjoyed the day from start to finish. As a new member of Walden Tri I cease to be amazed at the clubs atmosphere, camaraderie and welcome be at home or away (Fritton and Dambuster). Thank you for such a fantastic event and for all your efforts you put into running the club"
"As a novice entrant I had a superb day – well done all."
"I just wanted to say what an amazing time I had. This was my first Tri and I entered as part of a relay doing the running part. I was very nervous, but the way in which the event was organised seemed to create a very friendly atmosphere. I really am pleased I took part and hope to do the whole thing next year, I have been inspired! Thank you so much to everyone that had any part in the organisation and help on the day"
"I really enjoyed my first Tri and I think everybody involved, in particular the tri workers were really professional and extremely friendly and welcoming. I thought I’d only ever do one, but I’m already wondering whether to enter next year."
"Thanks I had an excellent time and will plan to come back next year! Thank you all for the excellent organisation!"
"This was my second Tri, Blackwater last Sept being my first.
In the past I have represented South Africa at the Duathlon World Champs and have therefore been at quite a few “high profile” competitions.
I must just congratulate you and the committee for a fantastic event / day - it is up there with the best that I have had the privilege of taking part in.
This is not just my opinion as every person that I had contact with on the day said what a great event this was."
"Really enjoyed it, thank you for a great race"
"Fantastic event. The amount of work put in by the ‘staff’ was obvious. Thank you so much"
"This was my "come back" triathlon after a 12 year lay off (kids + a serious illness last year have severely affected my ability to train). So I was a bit apprehensive - but your great organisation and lovely marshalls meant that the experience was nothing but positive for me. This time last year I feared that it was all over for me and I would never manage another triathlon but now I have. My confidence has returned and I will be back!"
"Thanks for a putting on such a well organised and fun race (apart from that killer hill on the way back on the run!!). Your marshalls are second to none! See you next year"
"Just wanted to say thanks to you and your colleagues for organising the Walden Tri today. It was my first tri and I thought it was a fantastic morning. The organisation was absolutely first class.
On the assumption that one of the reasons for the event is to attract new people to the sport, you’ll be pleased to know that I’ve come home and entered 2 more sprint events."
