Penzance Triathlon 2008 Feedback

“Thank you for all your hard work and bullying!  It paid off and Sunday was a great event well organised and enjoyable  despite the cold!”

“Thanks Yvonne for all your and your team’s efforts on Sunday. It was a lovely race, very friendly, very well marshalled, I was very impressed !!

Hope to see you next year!”

 “Just wanted to email you and thank you very much for organising the tri on Sunday.  Last year I watched out of my window and thought that I was gonna do that.. and I did.  It was my first event and I thought that it was organised so well.  Looking back now I wished that I trained more.  Still there is always next year.  Thank you so much it was a great day.”

“Just a quick line in praise of the organization on the Triathlon day.  I can’t imagine where to start in organizing something like that, with the additional headache of such a wide span of abilities.  If I said I enjoyed every minute, I would be lying, but I’ve just entered the triathlon at Helston, so it couldn’t have been too bad.  I’ve hurt my knee – no running for 2 weeks, but hopefully will be OK for Helston.Well done to you all,”

“Many thanks to all involved, for an extremely well organised and run event, last Sunday (and for getting the results onto your website so quickly).The swim was great, with a maximum of two per lane and a rolling start. The transition was fine, with plenty of room on the racking and a good wide area for jumping on/off. Out on the course: with such good signage and so many cheerful marshalls selflessly sacrificing vulnerable body parts to the arctic gale, it was impossible to go wrong, with time even to enjoy the scenery. And to the pre-event press-gang/recruitment officer, travelling far afield to gather competitors  –  thanks Yvonne!  Well done everyone and thanks for all your efforts. I hope to be back, next year, with a new pair of tri-bars clamped to my zimmer!”

“I did in fact go on to the website last night and look at the results and must say I was very impressed with the speed with which a detailed report and results became available. That did reflect the excellent standard of the organisation of the event and, particularly, the marshalling which was first class. It may have been a little on the cold side for the competitors but at least we were able to keep on the move. I think it fair to say that the weather was not perfect but I was speaking to a competitor in the changing rooms who said that he had left Lostwithiel at 6 o’clock in the morning during a snow shower so it could have been a lot worse.”

“I just wanted to send you a message to say how much I enjoyed your event.  Its the first triathlon I have done and thanks to the fantastic organisation I cant wait to do another.  I really appreciate all the marshalls that stood out in the cold and shouted out support as I went by, it really gave me a lift when I needed it most. This has definately given me the triathlon bug and I cant wait to compete next year when I can hopefully challenge further up the leader board.” “Thank you for a fantastic day yesterday, we all really enjoyed ourselves, and are very pleased with the results. The event was organised really well, and please say thank you to all the marshals who must have been freezing!Thanks again, especially for setting us off together for a competitve edge!!”

“Yvonne – thank you foir a great event! It was superbly organised and every marshall was so enthusiastic on a very cold morning. Well done to MBH.”

 “Thank you yvonne and family it was a super event so well organised and friendly. The marshalls were just so kind and encouraging. I am sorry I didn’t bring my Dad Chris Adams along but hopefully we will make it next year. I was thinking I could do with a bit of training so could i come along to the club? Is it mondays and thursdays? Is it the same time for running and bike riding? well i would like to learn how to go as fast as some of those guys who whipped me! thanks anyway”

 “I would like to say thank you for organising such a well run triathlon. The marshals were fantastic and really encouraging and it was great as a novice to have so many out on the course. I hope they have all warmed up now. I hadn’t expected to do as well as I have and it gives me hope for the rest of the season.”

“Thank you for organising such an excellent event on Sunday 6/4/08.” 

“great event well done”

“Thanks for today, great course, marshalling, organising. Great everything in fact, even the weather was much better than back home here at Lanhydrock! Keep up the good work and I hope you’re all going to have a relaxing evening with your feet up.”
