Great day out!
Run out was confusing as it wasn’t clear that we went through the finish at the start - panic moment!
Also feed station not well positioned. Running along the side where spectators were milling about wasn’t great either … but … otherwise an excellent course! Thanks so much for running it
Lovely venue, pretty tough course (hilly but roads pretty good for the bike), best marshal ever (bike feed station)!
An extra bike feed station would be really helpful (or perhaps make it 4 laps of the sprint bike route? ... I did the 70.3 and it was pretty quiet on the bike). The run course was nice (even though I was running terribly) - laps are so important and really help keep you going.
Great friendly event
a very well run and enjoyable event
Great location for a triathlon
First section of the run is not ideal - the loop back at the end wasn't runnable and it was way over 10km for the distance. Loved the swim and the ride.
First triathlon- everyone very helpful
Very different swimming in a lake compared to the sea. Would wear a wetsuit next time. Excellent team - from the paddle board support, medics , motorbike support and organisers. Thanks to all.
Really enjoyable triathlon!
Overall I thought today’s triathlon was excellent from arrival in the car park through to the end! Registration was quick and efficient. This was my first time cycling in this area and thankfully the signage on the cycle (and run) routes was clear, and I was able to relax and able to compete without wondering where I had to go next. Other triathlons I have entered have had signs which are unclear but I felt todays were excellent and didn’t impact on my performance with late decisions or missing a turning. I was initially hesitant about the swim with the stones on the bank and the mud etc but this actually added a different element to transition with the run up the grass bank etc.
In summary a really enjoyable and well organised triathlon. Thank you to all staff, volunteers and those involved in making things flow so well.
Brilliant atmosphere in a beautiful location
Great organisation and very enthusiastic Marshall’s.
Having several events and distances is great means there are lots of spectators even at the later stages of the event.
Top Devon triathlon in a great venue
Superb organisation, amazing venue, great course, fab for families and supporters too, highly recommend!!!
Looking forward to Roadford 2023!
A great all inclusive event with a fast bike route and challenging run. Ideal for spectators to watch.
A lot of fun
The event was overall really good and enjoyable.
Not quite sure about the finishers medal this time round. I completely get the idea of sustainability but the type of wood it’s made of seems fragile and could easily break amongst my other medals.
Maybe recycled aluminium medals for sustainability would be better?
Please don’t let that derive from the overall fun and atmosphere these events give!
Excellent event and a great venue
Nice easy lake swim, quiet if a bit bumpy bike ride and mostly flat ish run
Please address transition security. I was able to take my bike out without any checks. There were also non racing people in the transition!!
Great place, enjoyable and challenging!
A top and slick event
Really enjoyed coming back to Roadford for the first time in 4 years. Loved it illbe back for more.
