In short: Awful and clueless organisation In full: Terrible organisation and execution. Frightfully dangerous actually at times. I ended up being misdirected and doing 21.5 miles. Two people I spoke to did at least 24 miles.
The list goes on, I just wrote a 1500 word complaint letter to the 'organisers' - that says it all. I'll spare you from it though.
Officially the worst event I have ever done. Date of review: February 2, 2014
In short: Great for first timers or veterans! In full: This being only my second multi-sport event, I can hardly claim to be an expert, but I thoroughly enjoyed this.
The Brighton Beach Aquathlon is made for a PB, as the running course is as flat as a pancake and the distance is quite unusual.
The organisers get full marks for providing a fun and friendly small event, with goodies at the finish line (home-made muffins!) and a race director who always answers all the questions from newbies with enthusiasm and patience.
I'd recommend this for all. Date of review: August 2, 2010
