“Everything was very well organised and planned. Thank you ”
“Just a little expensive, especially for kids - plus no t-shirt sizes for kids. Would be great if children also got the t-shirt to wear afterwards.
But fantastic race, and would definitely do it again and recommend others to do it as well. ”
“It's all good. Well put together event, and it's smoothly organized with a good vibe throughout.”
“I have to say that I really like the shirts. The purple is a nice addition to my growing collection of rainbow colors.”
“As usual this was a well organised and well attended event. Being able to pick packs up the day before helps to ease the queues on race day for those like me who travel from Dubai. I also had the run as 10.2km but put it down to my staggering rather than measurement inaccuracies!
Even Captain Stroppy on the start line was quieter than normal, when weeding out the slow and wrong category runners, but I think that was because his microphone wasn't working!

“Overall a very good event, a few suggestions:
1. With over 250 runners in each event, consider using historical/expected time to group at the start. The crowd for the first kilometer is rather challenging.
2. Educate/advise first-timers on some of the basic etiquette such as not walking on the running line, not stopping suddenly on the running line, and watching out for others when discarding bottles.
3. The photos, like the YAS HM, have issues with focus/clarity.”
“I thoroughly enjoyed participating after a few years absence. I thought the event was very well run from the moment I registered and everything seemed to go without a glitch (I just need to train a bit harder in preparation for race 3).
My only negative comment would be to ask when the run stopped entering Zayed stadium as I felt this added something - as I say its been approx. 4 years since I last ran here as I have only just returned to UAE.”
“Again, a very fun morning running with this great community! Everybody who organized, ran, and volunteered for this race made it wonderful. So smooth! Pictures were great and emailed so quickly! As was the timing.
One HUGE bonus was the shirt color! I really enjoyed the color scheme for this race! Thank you!!! ”
“Great atmosphere and excellent event management. The distance is slightly inaccurate (10.2 vs. 10), some room for improvement, but not a big deal.”
“I participated several times in this event and it is well organized. Feedback: add more trash cans in the path.”
“Lets run in the other direction next time.... ”
“Great organisation, great atmosphere. Absolutely no bad remarks at all.”
“Wonderful people, nice music, great food and well organized. ”
“Really enjoyed this race , well organised and no time delays !
Will participate again ! ”
“Great organisation as usual. Nice warm-up, many very friendly supporters around the course, funny moderation, amazing weather conditions- in summary a fanatstic, perfectly organised event!”
“Marshalls are lovely and very encouraging. Thank you to all of the volunteers.”
“Brilliant for all levels of athlete from very beginner, child, family group, walker through to the competitive athlete - inclusive!
Great atmosphere, though more music and cheering throughout the course would be great! Brilliant organisation. Friendly. ”
“A lot of positive energy and support.”
“This is my first time participating in such event. I loved the organization, communication, and especially the event photo service (received pics in less than 2 hours after the end of race). The only thing that I didn't like is how crowded was the waiting area. I don't mind crowdedness, but there wasn't enough space for people to sit and enjoy the social gathering afterwards. Aside from that, THANK YOU!”
“Great was to start the new year. Good route and well organised! You must be running out of shirt colours! Muesli much better than muffin in after race pack. Complimentary photos a nice bonus :-)”
“Friendly, easy access and parking, well organized.... the perfect race to check your training paces or have fun with your family
“Well put together - my thanks!
