Competitor Survey Results

Thanks to the many competitors that completed the Destination NSW survey on this year’s race with over 400 surveys completed which is an excellent response rate. Winners drawn by Destination NSW for the complimentary entries into the 2016 Nepean and the IFly voucher were Jason Duss, Ron Simpson and Ryan Fifield.

Looking at the responses, 98% of respondents would recommend the Nepean Triathlon with the majority of comments being ‘Don’t change a thing’. The revised swim course received many positive comments, some competitors did not like the cycle course change – we will look at this for 2016 and the run course was again well received. For those that mentioned that they would like the race to have official photographs, please visit the official photographers website

Thanks again for those that completed the survey – we have looked at all responses with an aim of providing a first class race for all competitors.
