Mumbles Duathlon featured a high amount of first timers. First timer Adam Moreton reviewed The Mumbles Duathlon on Race Check:
“I love the Mumbles waterfront location, and this event makes the most of it with transition, start and finish centred around Verdi’s. Parking was easy and hassle free, as was registration and the safety briefing. Safety seemed high on the list of priories which I think it’s always a welcoming sign. Scenic and undulating bike course, which is mostly light with traffic. A good mix of athletes from first timers to competitive age groupers. Well worth doing”
