“I’ve been competing since 2000 so I’ve seen a few races in my time. I just wanted to say thank you for what was a really well organised but also very relaxed and friendly event. The marshalls did a great job. And it was a nice touch having a ‘roving’ announcer at the finish.”

“Just to say one of the best marshalled courses ever. Thank you.”

“Just a quick line to say many thanks to all the organisers and volunteers at the race today. You created a really friendly, encouraging atmosphere, and an excellent course for all three disciplines. I really enjoyed the whole event and will definitely recommend it to others.
Yours aching but happy (and breaking no records!)”

“Overall, a superb event, well organised, coordinated, marshalled and run. Highlights were that all involved were not only highly motivated but were all highly knowledgeable and communicated it efficiently and effectively. This together with a good and well marshalled course made for an enjoyable race environment.

I recognise that it takes a great deal to put on an event and even more to put on one of such high calibre.”

“What really stood out about your event was the enthusiasm of the volunteers & marshals , exceptionally cheerful & friendly – no matter how many questions they were asked , thank you ! I think this is one of the keys things that for me personally makes me want to return to an event.

The registration was quick & painless , everything was very well organised .

[…] it was a fantastic triathlon location & venue. Enjoyed the route for all legs. Very well signposted on the bike and run. Appreciated all the road markings on the bike.

“Overall – I am excited to come back next year! Thank you so much – especially to the volunteers who stayed cheerful and supportive to the last competitor in the rain and wind :-)”

“Marshals: great support, really made the day, cannot give this enough praise – definitely the hallmark of the event being hosted by what seems to be a great tri club (vs. say an events company).”

“Overall: 10/10, will definitely be back and have already recommended to friends. Job well done.”

“Second year of competing at Reading and think it is well organised and marshalled by people who understand Triathlons. Car parking was fine with walk to and from registration not a problem. It was easy to leave afterwards.”

I’d also like to say thanks to the marshals and organizers. It was a brilliantly put together race, the marshals were very helpful and cheerful.
