“It is what it is !!!!!!! - Always a simple set up, no frills, no drama, just, turn up and go. This time I did the 4k with my 3yo son and the trucks etc on the course freaked us a bit. I know it must be difficult to stop progress in Dubai .but there should be a marshal at these points for the next race. A BIG THANK YOU for all the volunteers. Thanks.”
“Very enjoyable, thank you. - Once again enjoyed the event. Construction traffic still a bit of a problem but personally I like the course. Few less entrants than normal but still friendly atmosphere. Another water station would have been good. Thanks Warren and the team.”
“It was a great and fun experience. - Keep up the good work!”
“Good event needs more runners - Need more runner as last lap in 12 km felt very lonely... I ran a PB so not unhappy with that but. Only 1 person within 100 mtrs or me on last 4 km. Medal would be better if middle was a plastic disc with details instead of a sticker.. but overall very well organised and marshaled....on a cold January morning...”
“Awesome - Need baggage booth, I ran with my bag pack during the race.”
“Decent event for the regular runner. - This is a decent run out for those seeking a mental win for their track efforts. Having 3 water stations is encouraged.”
“Disappointed - Price = Race not good.
traks crossing the road
poor water support
not good atmosphere”
“Great running event - Asics run was great and I enjoyed participating in this event. I only suggest if possible that Run should be held on Fridays to avoid the big trucks and construction vehicles crossing the road during the Saturday work day.”
“A bit disappointing - There was no way of finding out bib numbers ahead of the event. This was not a problem in October, so I hope it won't be a problem next time.
The biggest let down about this run is the course. A 4k circuit up and down a 2k stretch of road makes for a very repetitive 12k run. The view of the SZR skyline on the return stretch makes up for this a bit, but not much.”
“Great series - I love this race series, and the new course at Meydan is a very fast one. Like the addition of the 12k too . However, it was a little disappointing to have only been awarded 2nd when I won the race! Thanks to the organisers for rectifying this on the online results though. I'll definitely be back next time as I like the course and the relaxed atmosphere. Bananas before and after much appreciated too, as were the vouchers. Well done and thanks to Warren and the team.”
“The turning curve should be improveed - The turning curve should be improveed”
“I enjoyed the run. Site was easy enough to access. - Everything seemed fine when I registered. Somehow the organizers entered my name into the wrong age category!”
“A nasty shock on the course now! - This was a nice race with a flat course, not too busy and well organised. The big downside today from previous races is that the road was not closed to the vast amount of building-works traffic. The likelihood of their being an incident at some point, especially if it gets more runners, is increasing. I'm not sure I'll do this again knowing I have to share the road with some very large trucks!”
“Good morning for a run - I can now say I have kept pace with a small front end loading tractor! Is what it is... Hard to stop progress in Dubai!”
“The staff was friendly and helpful. - A construction site as the running course not a wise idea.Wished the course was different. Very difficult to focus on my run and to be watchful of dump trucks and other vehicles.”
“Good race again well organized - A few trucks & cars crossing the track - should not happen”
“Average overall - Hard to run while keeping an eye on the trucks, taxis and jeeps on the track. Friendly atmosphere and staff. ”
“Thnx. - Looking forward for the next run, thnx.”
“Good race, well organised! thanks! - The smell at the start of the race is something to look into...
