“Fantastic organisation/parking/venue. - Absolutely wonderful in terms of organization - loved the iPad available for results. Lovely medals! Would like to do all 5 next season!!”
“Still some room for improvement - The race course was very good, but removing the bib 3 meters after the finish line is horrible. Everybody should receive the same medal. 15K and 10K races have to start at least one hour earlier, at 7:45 the weather was already unbearable. The fee we pay for only a medal and a muffin voucher is too much.”
“A good race. - Everything was good except for few things
1. A toilet enroute
2.Energy drink in between as it was a warm day
3. A T shirt could have been given,
4. I did not get the goody bag as it gt over.”
“Great event - Nothing to complain regarding the distance I was running. We came from Abu Dhabi so we were lucky with the 7:00 start. But for longer distance runner the temperature was surely too high at this time. Great that 4 different distances are offered. I very much appreciate that every runner can directly check his timing and position on a tablet which was offered by the organizer. Really fantastic! ”
“Very well organized. Lots of positive energy - Just one suggestion, for races in April, please see if you can push the start time back by 30-60 minutes. It got really hot towards the end for 15 km runners. ”
“Event was filled with copious energy & positivity - 150 AED was bit too expensive for the event. ”
“Fantastic - Great event vety well organised”
“Disappointed with the medal - Id run the 10k and didnt got the cool 2xu medal,, was soo disappointed to received the supersports one. ”
“Great race, thanks to the organizers..... - Route and venue are nice, great organization......great crowd and spirit.... drived from AD for this
1- Water first, then take away my bib - was dying at that point!
2- At this time of the year, and though cooler today, it would have been much better to start at 6:00am. 10K started at 7:08 and it was hot in my book...
3-where are the pictures? ”
“Great Runners - Check on the Business Bay/Canal 10k,15k route! It was awesome, Nike had their run, just after ours!
2XU could have discounts at the event, they were priced the same .
I'm coming back for the runners, Great Runners,Lot of respect, No Selfie Stick runners,God Bless!”
“Well organized except for the signages - This was my first run of the series and overall I was pleased with the way event was organized. With temperature picking up, I was a bit concerned with the start time however the 10k run turned out to be a comfortable one, not quite sure if the 15k would have had the same result as I saw some of the runners struggling. Signage midway into the race was confusing as I saw 17k, 19k signages and arrows pointing away from the course. However Marshals did a decent job to negate this shortcoming.”
“Fantastic intro to running - First ever official run for my girls and an amazing experience. Safe, well organized, well-signposted, easily accessible course. We'll be back for me ;-)”
“A good organised event. - Better arrangements in starting point and signs in the route would be appreciated.”
“Keep improving on next series of events - Medals, give-aways,loot bags should be the same regardless of which distance it is”
“Consistently a great race - Once again, the 2XU race was excellent! Well organized, great venue, good sized race, 4-different distances is a great feature.
Minor points:(1) Perhaps consider an early start for this 5th race in the series. The heat wasn't unbearable and the water stations were adequate, but we lost about 45 minutes of cooler weather had we started earlier. (2) Was happy that 5th race retained the same course as 4th race. (3) the repetitive keepsake (the bag) is...repetitive. Add variety or eliminate.”
“Amazing start of weekend! - It was my second race and I will definitely sign up for all of them next running season. Great event, good organization... Tons of compliments to those who organized it! Well done, Super Sports Events!”
“Well done..Keep improving - Please ensure everyone gets same medal n takeaways irrespective of the timing of finish. Rest you guys do well organized race, loving it.”
“My first time and really enjoyed it. - Bringing the family to next one!”
“Well organized event - Enjoyable and always a pleasure to run in.”
“Entrance fee too high compared to other races - Towards the end of the race the only medals left were the supersports medals, not the one that actually goes with the race and also that there were no more of the bags left. Surely it was clear how many would be needed as you knew how many people had signed up. I have done many other races in Dubai and the price paid for a generic medal a muffin seems very high compared to the other races. ”
