Race day reviews 2017

Our event is made special by the athletes that take part and the volunteers that donate their time. Without either our event would not be possible. We thank you all immensely for making Rossendale Triathlon the popular event it has become. We are very grateful and honoured by your ongoing support.

This year good weather for the most part led to some fantastic times and results with everyone in high spirits throughout the day.

It’s great to see everyone still smiling as they cross the finish line and collect our popular hoody.  And it’s even better when we get fantastic reviews.  We are now looking forwards to planning next year’s event and hope to see all of you there.  Once again thank you all for participating and making our event an amazing day for all.

Here are just some of the positive feedback we have received from our competitors.

 

Edenfield PTA

On behalf of Edenfield PTA we just wanted to say a huge thank you for your help yesterday which was a raving success on all parts.

 

The organisation and volunteers were a complete credit and made it and the intro walk round the route was also a great success the week or so before. You have facilitated another 1200 pounds raised for Edenfield school guaranteed another set of entrants next year so thanks you.

 

 Please pass on our thanks

Good Morning

Can I just say a big thank you to all your race marshals and organisers.

It was my first triathlon event and the encouragement and helpfulness shown by everyone was fantastic.

For three of us in the team i was in it has been an extremely difficult week as we are police officers in Greater Manchester Police and have worked every hour possible to keep things going.

We were slightly tired yesterday but we wanted to do it.

Your volunteers are a credit to your club and made it a great day and i am already looking forward to next year’s event.

Please pass on our thanks to all everyone was fantastic
