“Sad to see it finished - Hope to see a new race taking place, this was a very well run event without all the corporate jazz.”
“Great Event, Good Organization..shame to see it go - Overall a great location and course..I prefer less loops for the course as quite a bit of lap traffic for front runners. Nice organizers and well run course. Course marshals and marking got me off course for the first loop...I probably just needed to pay more attention but a lot of turns around the Westin.”
“Best Race Series in Dubai - The ABRaS Mina race series sets the standard for races in Dubai. The organisation is excellent, from clear pre-race communications to instant results as you cross the finish line. The course is flat and accurately measured with great on-route support and atmosphere at the finish area. Very sad to see this go and I really hope to see it come back. A big loss to the Dubai running community not having Race 2 and 3 this season”
“Excellent - Well organised and executed. ”

“1 of my favorite 10k run.... - Id felt sad with the news but hopefully ABRAS AC will come back soon!”
“A great event - lots of fun - A fantastic event as always with great organisation and a real community feel. ”
“Great Event - What a great event. Well organized and fun. Such a shame it is the last one.”
“A great event! - I just love the winding run through the hotels but the three laps are tough for a super plodder like myself! I realise this was the last one but am still hoping that this will change. Would it not be possible to extend the run from the hotels along the beach road towards Royal Mirage in place of the loop around the jetty?”
“Excellent. - Start a bit unclear and could use a chipped start but otherwise very well organised.”
“Iconic race - Very sad this is the last race. This event will be missed.”
“Fantastic event - so sad it is not continuing! - This is an amazing event that has demonstrated all the best there is about volunteer organized runs in Dubai. It's indeed unfortunate at a time when health is so strongly being emphasized in Dubai that the event organizers are unable to receive the support necessary to sustain the event as a model of what it means to remain active, healthy and happy. ”
“It's a shame it was the last one - I have only participated in the last 2 ABRas Mina 10K race and thoroughly enjoyed both even if I am a novice runner. Great course and fantastic atmosphere.
Even if it was only my second race this time I felt emotional that it was the last one with this group of passionate people.”
“I will miss U - A water station on the jetty would help....”
“Great event - Very nice event and organization. Thank you to all the volunteers at the water support stations and marshals for the encouragements. Too bad this was the last Abras run, I have enjoyed it every single time I participated in it. ”

“Great event over the years, will surely be missed! - Great job to all the volunteers and marshals on the course supporting the runners. Course a bit challenging at times but nicely shaded by greenery and tall buildings. Great event giveaways and nice medal. Overall good communications and Overall good communications and punctual agenda (briefing, results, giveaways).
Huge shame that this event will no longer run. Many thanks to ABRaS committee who have made the event possible over the last 9 years, it will be a great loss to the running calendar.”

“Excellent event...for runners by runners - Such a pity if this has to be the last such event, the more so for apparently numbskull reasons behind it. All credit to the organising team for trying to keep it going...but I'm sure ABRaS races will be back in some shape or form. These races have been consistently flawlessly organised, and even though the heart of it is a running event for runners by runners, it has always reached out to a wider community and retained the spirit of fun and sharing. Bravo to all.”

Particular thanks to Debbie for helping me out with entries and for delivering our numbers to DRR predictor - well beyond the call of duty. A huge shame that this event will no longer run. Many thanks to all the ABRaS committee members who have made the event possible over the last 9 years - it will be a great loss to the running calendar. ”
