“Well organized. Very professional. Very entertaining ”
“Fantastic event. Looking forward to collecting all 4 medals across the year. We have the Q1-4 medals from the 2022 series. The free sponsored F&B were great on this one. Lots of food, ice cream, drinks etc. Venue was also something different to the usual tracks we've done. Lots of marshals as well which made it smooth for the participants and I love that there were lots of female Emiratis involved. ”
“We do lots of races, and this is out 5th with BABA events. They always go above and beyond with the best branding, artwork, gorgeous medals and T-shirts, and great sponsors with free food, beverages and desserts provided to all. Looking forward to Q2, 3 and 4.”
“Start was in time.. And 1,3,5,10 mode is not right way.. It should be just reverse in order.. There itself problem began... 3 k people are starting one k toddlers are facing as returnees... And towards end there is system problem in timing... Even one fellow passed me just 50 meter away,his timing is 48 and mine is 51..impossible...”
“There is no organization in the tournament, there are no instructions, nor are some of the coaches for the tournament.”
“Great Time Great Events

“The management is totally worse and the anchor behave rude with athletics and distribution of awards is awful. the timing is wrong and distrbuting to wrong participant, need lot of improvment ”
“Their part was good and well organized, had sole issues on timing, it’s not their mistake, have to find a better timing solution”
“Done very well, thanks for it, ”
“Event was very nice, well organized, post refreshments, has timing issues, usually happens in all races”
“Not so well organized. Directions to the actual place was missing, the timings too a long time to be announced. The placed was not well lit. Snacks were good”
“Great course and friendly race support but the timing system let the runners down. Lots of people had DNF when they clearly completed the course.
Started the shorter races first so that there was lots of traffic for the faster/longer races. ”
“The events was awesome!! looking forward to my next run!!! It would be great if we knew the dates of the next runs in advance.
“Great information prior to the race. Clear guidance as to how to get there. Good set up once we arrived.
It did start to unravel a little when the races were set off incorrectly. The organisation of starting the 1K off first, and then allowing the little ones to finish caused chaos. As did allowing them to run on the track whilst others were finishing. This was very distracting children getting in the way of finishers.
“Wasn't organised well. Kids awards were given last after the adults which happened post midnight . For people arriving from dubai reached back only at 1.45am. Extremely exhausting”
“It was a nice organised event. Only the ranking was a mess. My son Jorrit ended first ( 505) in the 5km run in a time of 17minutes, I ended 3rd in the 5km run with a time of 20min 49sec. At the ceremony other people where called to the podium, we checked the timings and noticed that we where not registrated like some other people. I told the speaker that it was wrong, even the guys on the podium told them that it was wrong. Even the guys on stage told him. But he did not do anything. Very sad”
“Why would you set the 1km off first? Didn’t make any sense.
The finish wasn’t lit up, so you couldn’t see it as you ran towards it.
The results seemed to be all messed up.”
“Los contadores de ship son muy malos esa empresa siempre hemos tenido problema ya es la 2 vez que terminó una carrera y aparezco con resultados y ni siquiera de finalista ”
“Why 8 and not 10.
1. The place. On website there was noted as Dubai but it was in Ajman. It’s all my fault as I didn’t check the place and track clearly. But for a foreigner it was difficult to come and then come back to Dubai at night.
2. In all European countries if you get some prize winning place in absolute you also get it in the category. It was different in this event. If you got one medal you didn’t get another one. I saw that several sportsmen were discouraged.
Volunteers, food 10!”
“Organisation was poor and start times delayed; timing tech didn't correctly track times; my result showed in the wrong race (3km instead of the correct 5km); too much hanging around for results and medal etc... I left and didn't wait
Free snacks were good!”
“The speaker was very rude and missed out on 10k female age category ”
“Results and timings management was really bad ”
