Sponsored by Enea, one of the largest energy groups in Poland, this year’s Enea 5150 Warsaw, held in June 2017, has reported scored with participating athletes. The organising team at Sport Evolution, which runs Polish triathlon events licensed by IRONMAN has reported that 96.2% of this year’s Enea 5150 Warsaw finishers would recommend the event to their friends.
Participating athletes reportedly pointed out several features that appealed, including the event location, race course and general atmosphere on race day. High scores were also assigned to the finish line experience, security and start procedure which was changed to a rolling start this year.
“We are more than happy to see the athletes appreciate our level of security and safety,” says Piotr Jakóbik, Marketing Director at Sport Evolution. “This has always been our priority and is also the main reason why we introduced the rolling start procedure. When you combine this with the fact that they simply felt good at Enea 5150 Warsaw, and over 96% of them would recommend the race to their friends, I can also say a ‘big thanks’ to all our staff, volunteers, city authorities and sponsors as it seems we met the expectations of our demanding customers.”
The athletes’ satisfaction survey was based on a standardized template used at all the IRONMAN-branded events. 250 finishers at Enea 5150 Warsaw shared their opinions – with the overall satisfaction score reportedly at 94.1%.
Piotr Jakóbik added, “No way we will we rest on our laurels now. Beside all the positive feedback, the survey also showed there are some areas where we can improve, and we are pretty aware of that. We appreciate and take into account every single opinion and will do our best to get even better next year.”
Enea 5150 Warsaw took place on 11 June, with 1000 athletes on the start line. Agnieszka Jerzyk (POL) and Aliaksandr Vasilevich (BLR) claimed victories, both breaking the course record.
