7.5 Fantastic race, very well organised. · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“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. ”

9.4 Perfectly good event, well organised Simon Putt · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes

7.9 Good one! Jaby Mohammed · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
10.0 Well organized family event · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“I have to say that I really like the shirts. The purple is a nice addition to my growing collection of rainbow colors.”

9.2 Top notch as always Colin Greenwood · Participation 4 times I would take part again Maybe

“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! Thanks again!”

8.5 Enjoyable, fun & well organized! Suryaveer Singh · Participation 5 times I would take part again Yes

“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.”

8.3 Excellent event worth attending Graham Paterson · Participation 5 times I would take part again Yes

“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.”

9.6 Blablablabla · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“Blablablabla”

9.4 Another fantastic event! · Participation 5 times I would take part again Yes

“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!!! ”

9.0 Great fun relaxed event Sameh Abdalla · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“Great atmosphere and excellent event management. The distance is slightly inaccurate (10.2 vs. 10), some room for improvement, but not a big deal.”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 15.01.2017
“Thanks for the positive feedback. The actual course is the ONLY AIMS | IAAF measured 5 and 10K course. GPS is not as accurate as the measurements tools used to measure, also when measured it is the running line which is very difficult for a runner to achieve in a crowd as you zig zag and move off your line... any ways you did a great run ! ”

9.4 Another great event from AD Striders Michael Mitchell · Participation 6+ times I would take part again Yes
8.8 Excellent event Naser Wadi · Participation 5 times I would take part again Yes

8.3 Very Organized Talib Al Salami · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“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!”

10.0 Great run - loved the muesli after run pack Angus MacKinnon · Participation 6+ times I would take part again Yes
