“The roadworks on the course make certain areas very stony...needed to make sure I missed them and not turn my ankle.
Medal as always for this event is disappointing in comparison to other events.
Otherwise, well organised and fun. Well done to Warren and his team.”
“Course was rocky in some areas and markers were unclear.”
“Not too late to join in with the series of 5 races.
“I am from South Africa and participate in marathon runs in my country. I really enjoyed running in another country.”
“The choice of track was not ideal. The road had potholes and unconfortamble. It was next to a construction site and at a time there was a botcat and a truck on the track that were emiting fumes.
The distances were unusual, 4,8 and 12. I would prefer the usual 5k or 10k.
Overall, it was good organisation. ”
“The event process from registration, parking to the finish line were very well organized, Kudos to the team responsible. The track however was boring (3) laps on a straight paved road, the Km marker signage could have better marked (seperate marks for 4, 8 and 12 km based on each color)”
“In lap3, there was construction trucks crossing and driving; then vans; then a BMW blocked the final turning. It was dangerous for me and other runners. The cutoff for the race is 1.30hrs, but the constructions trucks were on the track at 50mins. The marshalling team did nothing. ”
“Loved the race it was nice. Area for improvement the water stations to be more organised could have supplied bottles of water instead of glasses of water. Also no directions leading to the race.
“The start line of the race is congested in parking entrance and does not look so good in the pictures. The start line picture is the only picture for the whole runners and it shall have a better view!
One more point, when we reached the venue from the main roads there was no signage to guide to the race location, I saw some people confused at the intersection and wondering which exit to take. Luckily I took the right exit, otherwise I would have missed the race!”
“This would have been a great event but running along a 2kms tarmac stretch in the middle of a construction site is as uninspiring as it gets. I thought this event would use some of the setup at Meydan! My Friday run around where I live is more interesting and scenic than this was. Terrible value for money in terms of the event itself, although the organisation was excellent. ”
“It was my great pleasure and enjyed the race very much.
the location of meydan was bit cofused even after using the GPRS.
It was great and fun.”
“The worst things are
1- the course ( in the middle of road works )
2-the Medal ( v cheap _
3- they take back the bib
4- the give aways are horrible ”
“I love that you get a medal. Maybe add to the information about the event that there are no lockers but a patio with security guards over looking the belongings. Would like a 10 K distance as well. A plus for the organisation of the race!”
“The track was not very nice at all, and it smelled horribly of manure. ”
“1. 0 availability of taxis at venue
2. Not clear where the race was going to take place upon arrival - people mainly grouping with the crowd
3. The course was disappointing - construction going on and fumes blowing during the run
4. Value for money not great
5. Prior to race - registration information was not that easy to find - file names and instructions could have been clearer
6. Otherwise, it was a fun event and should be better next year :)”
“In the pre-race info there is shown 3 different turning points for 4, 8 and 12k races, however in the race there is only one common turning point. ”
“Well organized, good family event. Not the greatest in the UAE and the giveaways could do with some improvement, but overall a decent race which is fun and enjoyable. ”
“Plenty of room; plenty of water; well organised! But yet to get a free t-shirt or see the pictures !!!”
“A good, solid run in which we can test ourselves - that's what we want and that's what we get. Not bothered about the quality of giveaways or medal. Perfectly well organised. Nice job, Warren + team.”
“Very disappointed with the giveaways despite of large sponsors such as Go Sports and Asics ”
“The organisation was as good as ever. Only minor grumble was that the drinking stations were oddly spaced out (in different places to usual). Anyway, I still enjoyed it. Thanks Warren and the rest of the team.”
“Great to see all the young runners out on a beautiful morning. Thanks for having the event. ”
“Fast race as flat course, but not very interesting. Plenty of support/water stations. ”
“With all the great areas to run it felt like a training run round a building site. Especially after the great race at Mushrif park last week. No T shirt at the end either just a small bag water and fruit. ”
“It would be great to have a t-shirt in spite of a bottle of water or plastic bag...”
