I would take part again
7.4 A well-organised event · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“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.”

9.7 Nice location, well organised! · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

8.5 Was a good course and nice place Sinab Ayalew · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“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”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 06.01.2014
“Dear Sinab I am not sure which email you read because as Race director I sent out 2 that quite clearly states race starts at 7am.

9.1 Great organization, shorter than 10k? · Participation 4 times I would take part again Yes

“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? ”

9.7 Always a good event Kevin West · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes

“Just wish that the course could be run on softer surface - I know that is impossible!!”

10.0 Wee Simon Elliott · Participation 5 times I would take part again Yes
9.1 Great Event Jiji Abraham · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“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”

9.3 A good course and well organised Ian Douglas · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“I look forward to running with you again”

9.5 Perfect conditions, flat course and a PB! Richard Harrison · Participation 4 times I would take part again Yes

“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.”

8.3 Great race, no need for the medal... · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
10.0 Enjoyed the event! William Pretorius · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Need to find another 100m.... :)”

9.8 Great morning Henrik Kølleskov · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“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. Best regards Henrik Kolleskov, Tourist in Dubai, Home: Faroe Islands”

8.4 Another fantastic event, but PLEASE, ban prams. Ged Langosz · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“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.”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 03.01.2014
“Hi Ged, Prams are banned and I am not sure why any of the marshals did not pull him off the course. We will ensure this will not happen again.”
