FEEDBACK from our 2021 event

"Congratulations to organising a superb event today" Tony "Thanks for such a brilliant event! Can't wait for next year already" Delyth
"Hi Bedford Harriers, I competed yesterday in the Bedford standard distance triathlon and wanted to say a massive thank you for putting on a great event! In particular I hoped you would be able to pass on a big thank you to the marshal in a green hoodie on a paddle board who came to my help when I got overwhelmed at the very start of the swim (wave starts were a great idea, I just wasn't used to it after so long without racing). With his help to quickly calm me down I was able to catch back up with my wave in the swim and go on to come 4th female overall. All the marshals the whole way round were incredible too. Looking forward to coming back next year!" Victoria "Thank Bedford Harriers for putting on this race, I had a good time participating it was a nice course even if it was a little windy out there, but the rain stayed away during the race. Thank you to you and all the Marshalls that gave up their time to ensure we all were going in the right direction! Hope fully you will be able to pass on some of the thanks via the website. I know for you the day does not end with the finish line and there is lots of packing away to do. " Gillian
"Great day, well organised event, marshalling top class. Will be back next year!" Sime "We are still buzzing from such a fun day!" Rugby Triathlon Club
"I loved it! Thank you so much to everyone who put their efforts into this event. I think it fair to say Rugby triathlon club had a great day out!" Nic "It was a great event but I was a DNF due to injury. I had a lovely morning, swim was good and I achieved what wanted on the bike. Unfortunately my hamstring did not like the run. Your marshals were very helpful too so thanks for organising a great race." Josie
"Thank you for putting on a lovely event! Organization and marshalling fantastic" Richard "Thank you for the awesome prize! It's brilliant. Really unique and I love that it is personalised." Nichola
