10.0 Fantastic organisation/parking/venue. Helen Pringle · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Nice race ”

6.1 Still some room for improvement · Participation 2 times I would take part again Maybe

“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.”

9.8 Best race Ahmad Al Huraiz · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes
5.7 A good race. Bibin Thomas · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“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.”

9.8 Great event Dagmar Reich · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“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! ”

8.2 Very well organized. Lots of positive energy Faizan Jamal · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“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. ”

5.9 Disappointed with the medal Bjo Prometidos · Participation 1 time I would take part again No

“Id run the 10k and didnt got the cool 2xu medal,, was soo disappointed to received the supersports one. ”

9.5 Great race, thanks to the organizers..... Abdellatif Qamhaieh · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“Route and venue are nice, great organization......great crowd and spirit.... drived from AD for this comments: 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? ”

8.9 Great Runners · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“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!”

6.8 Well organized except for the signages Binosh Madathingal · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“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.”

10.0 Fantastic intro to running Tamas Lorincz · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“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 ;-)”

8.4 A good organised event. · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Better arrangements in starting point and signs in the route would be appreciated.”

5.5 Keep improving on next series of events · Participation 2 times I would take part again Maybe

“Medals, give-aways,loot bags should be the same regardless of which distance it is”

9.8 Consistently a great race Jon Dunne · Participation 4 times I would take part again Yes

“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.”

9.8 Great morning! Zoe Neill · Participation 4 times I would take part again Yes
10.0 Amazing start of weekend! Tetiana Maltseva · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“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!”

7.0 Enjoyable bit hot, water stations a bit poor tbh Mary Tlemsani · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
7.3 Well done..Keep improving Prashant Nasa · Participation 2 times I would take part again Maybe

“Please ensure everyone gets same medal n takeaways irrespective of the timing of finish. Rest you guys do well organized race, loving it.”

7.7 My first time and really enjoyed it. · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Bringing the family to next one!”

8.2 Well organized event · Participation 5 times I would take part again Yes

“Enjoyable and always a pleasure to run in.”

5.5 Entrance fee too high compared to other races Charlotte Taylor · Participation 1 time I would take part again No

“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. ”

8.6 Very good event Majid Hareb · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
