“Enjoyed the ABRaS 10k. It's a flat course, offering a good chance for a PB. The marshals were well-positioned and the laps laid out well.
Much better value for money compared to some of the bigger 10ks held in Jan (not mentioning names!) Would happily run the race again.”
“I enjoyed that chocolate brownie bar afterwards! The quality of the t-shirt however is somewhat questionable...”
“Well organised event, easy parking and nice venue. Personally I'm not a fan of running laps so thats my only negative point.”
“Always a great event and very well organised. Hope to be able to attend the next one in March. Thanks to the organisers, you do a great job and its very much appreciated.”
“Always well organised and smoothly run. The efforts of the organizers are appreciated. Thanks. Michael”
“I always enjoy the Abras, great course, very friendly and well organised.”
“I thought the course was good and a nice place of choice. But the email sent out to me was not good because of the time you sent me when the race was like at 7 and I got a email it starts at 5:30! But was good overall”
“The race was well organized.
I wonder if it was 10k or a bit less, I asked around and I believe it was around 100m short, so many people had PBs.
Thanks to ABRAS for the organization.
Any chance to organize a race in a different place?
“Just wish that the course could be run on softer surface - I know that is impossible!!”
“Great Event. My son really enjoyed his 3k run. I walked away with a gift voucher for Skechers and my son recieved a Lorna jane voucher for his mother! One Suggestion - perhaps 2 laps of 5K would be more enjoyable.
Already registered for the third Race”
“I look forward to running with you again”
“Another great race and I'll be back for sure. The only thing that I would change is to have a chip mat to cross at the start line so that accuracy of the timing is improved. Great race though. Thanks.
My daughter really enjoyed the 3km, she'll be back as well.”
“Need to find another 100m.... :)”
“I was very happy with e race and race organization. The speaker was giving clear and concise instructions.
When I signed in for the challenge, I was somewhat unhappy. I did not fully understand if I had to purchase my own chip, so I did to be safe. In the race package if I bought the chip the chip had one prize tag, but if I went to purchase only the chip, it was on discount 20 AED. I was no confident that I could bye the discount item and make sure to have the chip available on the race day. This costed me most likely 20 AED extra, and as I later understood, there would be a white chip available for the race, so basically I did not need the added cost of bying a chip.
When I passed the finish line the goodie bag was passed over, great. Also was a drink passed on to me. As I was not used to this drink and the way the straw already was inserted, i dropped the drink in my goodie bag. Little later I found out I had flooded my bag due to the open drink. This is maybe i firtstimer error, but as I was very tired in goal, I had not concedered that the drink was open already.
Thanks for a generally very good race.

“A very well organized and pleasant run”
“Well done to the organizers, marshals, etc. Great race as always. Thanks for all the effort you put into your races. ”
“No rants, just thanks:) - although - just a minor - it would be nice to have a net time result - well to to ABras organizers- u are awesome
“Overall a great event as usual.
Not so good was the man pushing the pram round the course. Yes - he did very well and many of the spectators thought it was cute.
But the pram was in the way:
- I had to slow down as it was difficult to overtake on the narrow paths in the Mena Seyahi
- I nearly collided with the pram at the finishing line.
Leave the gimmicks for the London Marathon.”
“A great start of the year with awesome running conditions. As usual, everything was very well organized. Congrats to everyone involved. Well done Abras!!”
