What people say
East Essex Triathlon
We've now used the arch for three events and very satisfied with it, we feel it really adds a professional look to our races and raises the image of the club with the logos on the wall and the club name across the top.
I was also grateful to Race Arches Uk who provided information on the design options giving us what we believe is an aesthetically pleasing final result.
People are always amazed by the size of the bag that we can fit the arch in, basically its no bigger than a medium sized ruck sack.

Comments from Alan Keane.
Effective Marketing Tool
We are very pleased with the Inflatable Arch that we purchased from Race Arches Uk (formerly Airdancer Wales). We are finding it can serve a multitude of purposes, most recently it was used as a finish line at a cross country event.
The atmosphere it helped to create at the finish was electric and the race organisers were really pleased.
A really effective marketing tool, we highly recommended using Race Arches UK.
