Hi Michelle

Many thanks for a fantastic event yesterday. I really really enjoyed the tri, it was so enjoyable, well run and superbly organised. The routes were very clearly marked and all the marshalls were superb. It was far better than the previous 2 triathlons I have done run by Offbeat events.
Thanks again for everything, I am really looking forward to doing the next one now.
ps love my hoody too, wore it with pride all afternoon.

Kindest regards

I had a lovely morning thank you. My first every tri was amazing! I found all your team really helpful. All giving me great encouragement and little tips. Made my triathlon that much more enjoyable.

I am already looking forward to my 2nd. Hope to see you and your team at the next one.

Kind regards John

Dorset Try a Tri 2015

Ringwood Triathlon – Many thx for such a great tri. I have done 9 sprints over the country this yr I can tell u Without a doubt one of the best I have done This yr im a novice Back in Dec I had a heart op And this is my fiftieth yr So I promised myself in gonna do as much tris as I can I will defo be back for this one again And also the blandford And tell rob Anderson I will ride all the way up that hill on the blandford one next time

Today I wasn’t interested in time, Just wanted to complete it, I’m so pleased I did The ride was beautiful. I like ur setup it intimate ,warm and friendly I will take a look at any others u have left for this yr.

Apologies about this morning To be honest because this was the longest distance I have ever done Two things were on my mind Slightly tired from my journey And my confidence is still being restored after my heart op Hence why I wasn’t with it this morning But thx so much U and ur team have made an old man very happy

Blandford Tri is my new favourite, featuring one ‘mother’ of a cycle climb – just when you think it has to be finished, you realise it’s only just begun! Also great views (if you can wipe the tears of pain away long enough to enjoy them). Top event A+++

Rob Anderson

Just a quick thank you for organising yesterday’s event. It was challenging in lots of ways, but ultimately very satisfying and enjoyable. You’d be pushed to find a better setting – it was really lovely at 7.00am and an interesting contrast to how it would have been at 2.00pm yesterday afternoon. The organisation was spot on, as usual.

Adrian Stephenson

Thank you Michelle for a great race. It,s great. To have Blandford back on the tri circuit.
Well organised and thanks also to the sponsors Offcamber.
Great event. congratulations
Look forward to next year.

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say a big thank you to you and your team for organising such an enjoyable triathlon yesterday. It was my first Tri and I couldn’t have asked for a better introduction to the Tri world. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and I’m totally hooked. I reckon I can shave at least 15 minutes of my overall first time so I’ll see you in March for the Madness Tri!

Nick Gilmour

Just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thanks for Sunday, it was brilliantly organised and I surprised myself by not coming last and enjoying the race.

It was my first triathlon and everybody was so friendly and helpful that it completely reassured me and made me feel quite comfortable. The marshalls on both the run and bike route were great – banishing any worry I had about getting lost!

Leila de la Mere

Very many thanks for a great event today – you did a great job. I thoroughly enjoyed it and thought it was well organised and staffed. Also a very big thank you to all of the marshals who also did a fantastic job with directions and encouragement, which were much appreciated. It was also a treat to have a free massage at the end, so thanks also to the students

This was my first triathlon and as a result of today it will certainly not be my last and I look forward to my next one with Results Triathlon next year.

Mark McBride

Thank you and well done for a truly magnificent event, organised with professionalism to the tee! I thoroughly enjoyed the ‘Ferndown Try a Tri’ as my first Tri, the experience has been invaluable and there is no doubt that I will be recommending it to all of the beginners at North Dorset Tri Club. I hope to make it a regular on my calender.

Mark Freeman

I competed in the Try a Tri on Sunday I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your partner!

I hadn’t done one before I was really nervous but it was so well organised, perfectly pitched and friendly, also the Saturday pre briefing was a godsend!

Yvonne Lee

My first event with your organization and I thought it was excellent! Thank you.

Adrian Goodhand

Just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed Sunday. I’m new to Triathlon and have been plucking up courage to participate for some time.

Despite last minute nerves which nearly saw me get back in my car and drive home again, as soon as I got in the pool all those feelings turned to adrenaline.

Both the bike and run course were great as were the marshals and the organisation.

So thank you very much!

Richard Austin

I just wanted to write and congratulate you on such an amazing event this morning.

I had such a brilliant time at my first Tri, I am completely hooked! The marshalling and route markings were faultless and I think the route also had the right amount of challenging bits and fun hills to glide down! The transition area was easy to use, all your volunteers had amazing spirit and were so helpful.

I can’t wait for the next event and want to say a big thank you to you and you team for all your hard work.

All the very best.

Julia Dearing

Just to let you know I really enjoyed this morning, can’t say I do any of the disciplines and squash is my only regular sport but have to say it was very enjoyable so look forward to my results and maybe another one in the future.
