The entire race are well marshalled. Very friendly atmosphere. There are very competitive elite athletes but also people who just start to train for the triathlon.

First of all thank you for allowing me, a non club member, to compete. As this appeared to be mainly a club event. Good location easy to find and park etc. Registration was simple and easy. Liked that race officers allowed a warm up swim before the start. This was very helpful and does not happen at other events. Marshall perhaps need to be out a little longer as the only person with an arrow on the last roundabout was pointing the wrong way, this turned out to be one of the Rotary Club marshals fortunately this was on my second time round and therefore knew way to go.
A pity there were no timing chips but I appreciate that this maybe to keep the costs down.
A very enjoyable event which I would be very happy to compete at again. Though I need a little more training to keep up with your guys!

More prior information required concerning the cycle route and obstacles. I appreciate the last minute errectio of maintenance work. However in the past I have been involved in a cycle accident after nearly colliding with a stationary council refuge van the appeared on the course without any prior warning to the race organisers.

Great local triathlon, excellent for beginners

Any other notes?

For the summer races at HOAC there are often other events on the same day and the lane into HOAC gets very jammed up with cars as the triathletes leave. For school summer holiday courses HOAC usually have a person at each end of the lane on 2 way radios with stop/go boards at peak entry and exit times. Could a couple of marshals do the same thing on race days?
Don't let cars arriving for other things after the race park in the transition area until it is clear of kit (or get people to move their kit earlier).
Breakspear Road is getting ever more potholed, I suggest members use the Hillingdon council website reporting service to alert the council to this. I did this a few weeks ago after a double puncture under the railway bridge, they responded by filling in the offending pothole, which was good, but they only did that one. It will take a few more reports to get the whole road up to a serviceable state!
