“There is no electronic measurement of performance - we lost 30 sec at the begining because we were at the end of the queue and 30 sec a the end because there was a queue at the computer.....”

“Hi, I took part on the race with my Dad who was visiting us in Dubai at the time. Both of us having previous experience (in my Dad's case, lots) in endurance sport events, we found the support stations and the volunteers fantastic. It was wonderful there didn't seem to be any stations running out of refreshments even though we were in the tail end of the race. The supporters along the way were great - nearly all of the Marshalls were yelling out encouragement and clapping us along. Thank you to all those that made the event possible & for having organised the successful event!”

“- Great job at pulling it off very well, especially for a first time! - Liked the fact that you printed names and national flags on the race numbers - For registration, it was inconvenient to go to Dubai Mall, especially at those times. Wish it was at least in the morning. - The baggage check was a bit unorganized. Should put the labels in the goodie bags, so that runners can put them on beforehand. Also, during the race volunteers should put all the bags in order for easier pickup. - Event should be advertised more in the community to encourage people to come out of their houses and cheer the runners on - Please tell runners beforehand in an e-mail about "passing etiquette." Runners should allow space on the left for people to pass. Sometimes there would be 2 runners running side by side, and not allowing any room for someone to pass on the left side. - I feel so bad to waste entire bottles of water. Can't oasis provide the small sealed cups instead? - Wish there was championchip timing or at least a way to know your time right away - Great breakfast and lovely setting! Thank you for organizing this great event! I will plan on doing it again next year and also telling my friends!”

“The women's shirts were SUPER SMALL. I normally wear a M bt ordered a large as womens cuts can run small. This ran SUPER SMALL/tiny. Will probably never wear the shirt due to the fit.”

“This race was largely enjoyable due to an interesting route and the lack of chip timing didn't affect those of us with garmins or stopwatches! The organisation of the start/finish should take into account the possible finishing times of competitors, like at RAK and this may allieviate some of the frustration of having to run behind slower runners after the start until the course allows overtaking (at around 2k). The location of the race number pick-up is inconvenient and it took me over an hour do get in and out. Why not allow pre-race number collection? If volunteers are needed to help, runners can help before they race. The breakfast was excellent and I appreciated the support of the marshalls all along the course. With a few changes, this event could be the best in the UAE.”

“Great race, loved it, although I did think there could be more water stations along the way. loved the station with the bananas and the mars bars! Absolutely loved breakfast and the fact it was included in the race price - it was a very inclusive event and a real festival feeling afterwards. Really appreciated the hard work and effort that had gone into the organisation, thank you team!”

“Lack of sponsors meant lack of giveaways/chip timing (more work on sponsorship). Running on sand was not fun for me. Also, increased the risk of injury. The finish line is awful. Much better if we can finish after a long straight (and not at a curve running directly into the breakfast tables! Support stations were excellent. On a couple of occasions, people were running in the opposite directions. This is OK on the road, but around the lake, the space is very narrow. The course was very challenging. I hated it on the day, but really glad I did it now. I will mostly remember the event for its challenging course.”

“Ridiculous and boring course. Potentially dangerous cramming of crowd through fence doors. Timing a joke. Breakfast not heart-healthy. More expensive than the RAK half-marathon which included chip timing. Amateurish at best”

“There was no information about the race until a few days before, a website or at the very least a facebook page would have helped with communication leading up to the event. The event itself was well organised, good atmosphere and nice breakfast. Course a bit narrow at parts however a good event which I will probably do again next year. Thanks to the organisers.”

“Overall the event was very well organised, i sure would be participating the the next years event Highlights 1. Excellent course, very scenic and new 2. Support stations were excellent due to the volunteers manning them (lots of energy) 3. Marshalls did a great job 4. Spectators - Marshalls, support station volunteers and the actual spectators, together were an excellent combo 5. Could do better having a website , official timing published and photographs.”

“Overall for their first run it was well organized, the run course really beautiful away from the hassles of city and vehicles, by the lake was great. Parking was an issue a bit but nothing so bad. The collection point for run kit at Dubai Mall was real inconvenient place to go especially in the evening. Enjoyed the breakfast, need to highlight the pork items on the menu more clearly, as i saw few non pork eating and non english reading runners upset. If the location remains same I look forward to running again. Thank you. ”

“collection of race number only from Dubai Mall which is a bit inconvenient living in Abu Dhabi. Course is scenic but narrow tracks are a bit of a nuisance. Perhaps different start times for different groups? Great job from all the volunteers and fantastic support from the spectators. start/finish venue with buffet breakfast was excellent. more toilet/washroom facilities needed next year !!!”

“A nice race and event! Finish into breakfast area was a good idea! Overall, it seems that the race was lagging a little behind the half-marathon in December (e.g. no chip-timing, no date on the medals, etc...). However, the support of volunteers in organizing it, handing out drinks etc... was highly appreciated. I was especially impressed by everybody always being so friendly, even when picking-up the race-bags, etc... Thanks a lot for everybody who invested their time and made this happen! ”

“If this had remained a full marathon I wouldn't have taken part so I am glad they changed it to a half marathon. Race pack collection was a little disorganised and not having timing chips was disappointing but the actual race was really well organised, great fun and a really nice course. A big thanks to the organisers, supporters and especially the blue haired people at the 15k support station who gave you that extra boost just when you really needed it!”

“On the whole a great race but two areas to improve: 1) I live in Abu Dhabi and wanted to drive up on the morning to the race, but needed to collect my race pack from Dubai Mall, not at all convenient. Could I not have collected from the race venue the morning of the race (or at least the night before)? When I emailed and asked about options, I received no response which was disappointing. 2) The race started a couple of minutes before 0630 according to me and a number of others. Made us almost late to the start line and it a bit tricky for spectators to time.”

“the sandy parts of the course were horrible!! also one of the drinks stations (at about 11k i think) was not very well positioned. i almost got tripped over by someone trying to get a drink. it was set up at a narrow part of the lake loop which probably wasnt a very good idea. also the finish line was potentially dangerous as well as you had to jump a kerb mid sprint finish!”

“Great race, great course, very well organized. Water stations every 3km seemed just perfectly spaced out. Just the km marks at the lamp posts were too small and too hard to see. I missed many of them. I don't mind manual timing, but two days after the race there is still no official race results. I'd expect that within 24 hours.”

“This was a great event, considering it was a community event it was very well organised and something that I will take part in again next year for sure. Just a couple of suggestions, the first toilet stop could had more than the 3 toilets, there was a queue for a while, the second comment is the sponsor stalls could have been inside the breakfast area, they were hard to get to as sliced by the finish chute. I do have to call-out to the people assisting with the water stations, they were TERRIFIC, very enthusiastic and cheering along. Everything else was great, thanks again. Damian”

“Thanks to all involved and the effort they put in. Course was great and different. We live in a desert so more off road sandy bits please. Breakfast was great and suitabaly lots of unhealthy items in it. Hats off to all and lets hope they get to do it again. If you get to do a full, three laps of the lake would be very hard.”

“I didn't have a stop watch which is my own decision, but it would have been nice to have the finish line clock better displayed. Will the finish times be posted? We also walked around in circles for ages looking for baggage drop due to the tine sign place at below head height. Support stations and most of the course was good although got a bit bored of the lake, but it is what it is isn't it really. There isn't really anywhere else to take the run to. Breakfast and facilities at Golf Club were capital! Thank you.”

“Not a bad course but I do not think it can get any bigger in future years due to the nature of the narrow pathways - as well as the two times everyone has to bottlneck to get through a fence doorway. A bit ludicrous really. Wish there had been chip timing”

“Well organised event - start and finish organsiation excellent, medal one of best seen and breakfast was well prepared and service great. Course support was also excellent. Only negative was around the end of the first 1k and the sheer volume of people all trying to make a corner ( 5 hole of EGC ) at the same time. But definately one to do again. ”

“Great location to make a race, and excellent organization to be first time. Things to improve for next year: 1) Have a website 2) Provide chip for timing 3) Distribute participants in the start point by expected completion time 4) Provide juices and isotonic drinks on arrival 5) Better and more convenient bibs collection (Dubai Mall is far from Emirates Hills)”

“This was my first race in Dubai. The entire organization around the event was exceptional and it was obvious that a lot of voluntary work had gone into the preparation. The breakfast after the session was truely a first for me - usually at such events you are handed out a plastic bag with a powerbar and an apple - I was really surprised to see the many tables set up with cutlery and real plates. The course was interesting for a newcommer to Dubai, but not spectacular. At times it was quite narrow. I enjoyed this race quite much even if I overheated near the end.”

“Thanks very much to the organization team who succeed in setting up this event with a race path going through this residential area. We could run relax, without any car trying to cross or go along the runners. Also many thanks to the marshals who kept cheering and distributing drinks. The abundant and varied breakfast was a real relief after the race, well served by a very enthusiast team. Congratulation to all and hopefully, meeting again next year.”

“Good event. The course was great. Not enough half marathons in Dubai. Ran short on water at the finish, but good water stations around course. Many thanks to all the marshalls and volunteers! Many where very encouraging. Wish we would have used the chip system, and had results posted. Would like to know where I finished in the pack. Also, would be great to have a website in the future. All in all, a good start to build from.”

“It was a good start for a new event. It started as MArathon, then Half marathon only. Wise decision. Good: Giveaways and breakfast Average: Course. There were some points were there were doors and narrow places. Start and Finish should be wider as it wasn't easy to progress. Why not CHIP timing? Web site is a must! ”

“Overall great course and well organised. Please more water at the finish and maybe sports drinks. Also ice packs, deep heat spray. Timing chips. Breakfast was great, lovely set up - more vegetarian and healthy food and some shade at tables would make it even better. ”

“Maybe if it is possible to have the timer device to check your speed and a track record of each lap that you finish in running then that would be great. And can be possible to have any assign photographer in the race for each,that would be great for each participant to have it as remembrance on that particular day of event that each runner did well the race fun and enjoyable.”

“Many thanks for a really fun race morning. Comparable to Dubai Creek Striders Half M in many ways, which I, and I think the majority of people love. Emirates Hills - great course. Why has it not be done before? Size of running field - seemed to be a comfortable number and chipped timing, preferred and competitive starting could allow more to enter. I appreciate the difficulties the first time round re timing etc. No matter. Loved the idea of husbands and wife entries. Shame mine didn't join me for this one! Hats off to all the organisers and all the drink station teams. Greatly appreciated. And, thank you for handing out little bottles as opposed to foil-topped cups, which are impossible to drink from and don't give enough. A big thanks to everyone. Great fun. Looking forward to next year.”

Maybe some crowd to cheer us up ? Well for that we need to go to NYC or London ... For UAE : thumbs up !! This was a great race, I'll definitely come back next year and I'll bring my wives/buddys ! Thank you to all volunteers. Oh yeah, how about starting an hour later ?”

“Shame you did not have chip timing for such a long run.... At the begining the marshals were quiet, even a clap or well done makes such a differance. Saying that i know how hard it is to marshal so well done......good to see so many young marshals involved....”

“Apart from a few wobbly sandy bits and one narrow gate the route was great. Loved seeing how the posh folk live! In general great organisation, feel that the collection of race numbesr could be improved on. Sharaon and co did a great job but needed more support in this area. Had a great day thansk to all!.. should have prizes to recognise us golden oldie ladies as well as the men! ”

“I really enjoyed this race. I understand that it does not have the resources of a Dubai Marathon, so things like no timing chip didn't bother me. Great value for money, the breakfast was good and the course was different. I will definitely register again next year. The only suggestion I would have is including race info with the packs on registration. Things like maps, when to arrive, what is covered etc would be great for those who didn't get emails. ”

“Course nice and beautiful, but too many points where you get slowed down. Finish not good going up a slope which could injury you. Breakfast and service was very good. No water stations at starting place, well I didn't spotted them. If timing cannot be done I would introduce this race as a fun race. Maybe next year we should run in funny clothes and get a price for that. Why no prices for the first three best runners?”

“I loved the effort of the guys at the drinks stations. Especially the kids from DC, JC and the team with the blue wigs! Really kept me going! I though the race number/pack collection could have been a bit quicker. Maybe 2 or 3 tables next time or bags already packed. Route was really good, narrow awkward sections well marshalled. Breakfast was amazing. Toilets could have been more numerous and better signposted. Over all tho, brilliant event especially for the first time and considering the issues the organisers had with names etc. Please do it again next year! I'll be doing it for sure!!”

“The course is quite boring as it primarily centrals around the lake with only views of houses. The path is narrow and it makes overtaking a bit of a hassel. Running on the sandy bits are no fun either (as if somebody has forgotten to put tarmac on those parts of the road). The highlight of the event is the sit-down breakfast although there wasn't any system of who has paid and who has not. Should just have the breakfast for free in future. And timing chip will be useful as its a fairer system. Well done, anyway.”

“Great organisation, a lovely course and the breakfast was superb. The support station at 15k was awesome! It was a good idea to start at 6.30 as the heat wasn't an issue. It took me over an hour to collect my number from dubai mall which was a bit of a bummer and i really wish the race had been properly timed though. Overall, one of the best races of the season and I'd definately do it again. A big thanks to the organisers...... Great job.”

“The best race I ever participate in the UAE, Europe, UK. Great job guys. What a breakfast! Good support from the marshals. Good organization. Nice run in a very nice location. Please do it 2 times a year!!! It's perfect. 1 minor comment: - The kilometer signs along the race are really small and white/Black, could you make them bigger next time and flashy: Red, Orange? Thanks a again Patrick ”

“Over all it was a good race and well organized. I felt, however that the finish area was too crowded. Lots of people just standing around because there was no place to go. Running through the sand and gravel was no fun either. :-) Other than that I felt it was a very well run event. The info that was passed both by email and at the start was very good. Well done to the organizers and volunteers! Thank you”

“Friendly event with a nice course around Emirates Hills, thanks to the spectators who turned up to support the runners, especially the guys doing mars bars at around 9k! Could have done with more toilets at the start and at 8k”

“Great organization. The breakfast gathering is a brilliant idea. It is not only a good rest and energy refill but only it gives the opportunity to talk with the other runners after the event. Just one point to improve for next time: there was no timing available at the finish line. So I still have no clue of my time and it is a bit frustrating after completing 21.1 km!”

“Great race. But whilst this March was cool, I think it needs to be earlier in the season. ”
