8.0 10KM Run Onelia Apilada · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“I participated in various 10KM runs but the ABRas was a bit out of my league as it seems the runners are all professionals. I pushed myself a bit too hard, hurt my ego for being one of the slowest -- but still made it to the finish line!!! I guess that was the fun part! Till the next run! Cheers! ”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 01.04.2014
“I am shocked to read your comment not worth the money! for 150aed you received superb timings and results available within minutes of you finishing, a good quality medal, high tech fabric t-shirt, chocolate bar and hydrate drink, not to mention the actual well organised, great 10k course also the opportunity to win some amazing prizes in the prize draw. Maybe next season you should try some of the other races on the UAE circuit.”

8.8 A great way to start your weekend · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“It was one of best 10k run I've ever attended so far and a very organized running event. The venue was great and a good course. I love the finisher's shirts and (of course) the medal. Raffle draw after the run also added fun to the event. I will surely not miss the next series of this race.”

“Superbly organized event, great course, great atmosphere. Wouldn't want to miss it for anything. Well done, Abras!”

9.6 Awesome experience · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“By far one of the few excellently organised races this season, & definitely more scenic than all the others, considering we live in the desert. Excellent management of the race pre and post. Will definitely be looking forward to the next series. Just one peeve, not a major one, the T-Shirts hand over could have been better. They missed giving me one (I was busy catching up on my breath) & when I went back to ask for mine, they thought I was coming back to get another 1 more :)) Right! ”

“This race was great from start to finish. Well organized at the start with easy pack collection and full pre-race brief. The course was marked perfectly and the results available within 30 minutes of the finish. Also an excellent medal and T-shirt, I will definitely be entering all 3 races of the series for next season. ”

8.8 A great finale to the season... Richard Harrison · Participation 5 times I would take part again Yes

“Another great race for a PB. The most competitive 10km field of all but with a warm and cuddly feel good factor built in. I am sure that reports that the ABRaS folks eat raw meat and fight bears for fun are not entirely true....”
