“Good easy run - Good easy run”
“Great family indoor event at the mall for all ages - The event was really great! This was my second indoor race. It's an awesome idea to organize an indoor race when it's too hot outside. Marshalling was on a high level - volunteers did a really great job! All in all - the event was amazing especially considering price for participation. Course-wise, much better than the first one, albeit short of 10km. But overall, really enjoyed the new course. Looking forward to the next one! Keep up the good work Abu Dhabi Sports Council & Gulf Multi Sport!!”
“I enjoyed the race - It was very enjoyable and well organized. I ll definitely participate again. Thanks a lot”
“Great event in a great location - Race organisation was great, course was shorter than expected but it was really fun to run in Ferrari World! Have already signed up for the next race!”
“Amazing event! - It was my second Yas Mall Run and it was even better than the previous one: great idea to move start/finish line to Ferrari World and change the route - no sharp turns! Enough of water stations, marshals did a great job as well. It's amazing event for such a low price! And the medals are very nice :)
Additional bonus - breakfast+park entry for just AED100 for participants! Already recommended this event to all my friends-runners and would definitely participate again!”
“Pity about the chips! - Didn't get an official time - shame as it was aPB on my watch and I think I might have placed in my catergory! Think the chip timing was defective.”
“Waited for my timing but I enjoyed it overall - Nice run indoors, great break in this heat. There were issues with timing but organizer has done an effort to fill in the voids from the video footage. Support stations were not many but then it was an air-conditioned space and slip hazard was high on the marble floor. Some more people should have been engaged to direct people in the morning, I was just following others. I share the view of others that routes were shorter than officially given, but that was the same for everyone so it's fine.”
“Benchmarks - It would have been helpful if we had signs at different kilometers so we can keep track of how far we are from the finish line.
Thank you ”
“A great value for money - This was my second indoor race. Course-wise, much better than the first one, albeit short of 10km. No sharp u-turns like the last one. Luckily, I had no problems with my result. Feel bad for those who did not get their results correctly. Water station not "prepared" like last time. But overall, really enjoyed the new course. Kudos to the organizers. I think u would have gotten better ratings if not for the timing fiasco. looking forward to the next one!”
“good and fun event - A nice event and a good inititiave to have the possibility to run inside with these hot temperatures outside. Great to see Ferrari World when it is still sleeping. Many commented it, but a pity that the timing system didnt work well. A few years before we used the ChampionChips, I bought one, but it seems that we dont use that system anymore. They seemed to be more reliable. Will definitely participate next time again.”
“Great Run! - I loved the setting this time better than the first indoor run as there were no u-turns that made it challenging to control your speed rather a full Yas Mall run including Ferrari World!
The results took some time to be updated in the system hence people who must have not won did and received medals while the real winners were kept wondering. This was the same major issue back during the 1st indoor run--the results. Hopefully for the 3rd run this will be fixed once and for all.
“Yas Mall Run 18.08.17 - This was a well organised and enjoyable event. it was good to be able to run indoors not on a treadmill, and without the horrible humidity and heat outside at the moment! There were some delays in the timings being made available, and it wasn't a full 10km run (about 8.8km by my watch), but I'll definitely be back for the next one.”
“Experience was disappointing - It was disappointing that three of my family members haven't received their official time yet. What's even more disappointing is that one of them should have been included in the top three as we compared his timing to those posted winners on his category.”
“Unorganized. Dont recomment this eve - I did not received my official time. organizers said they will
fix it at night but unfortunately in the website there was none. position of support system was inadequate. a bit disappointed”
“Motivating people how to be fit - Very much enjoy love it
Can't wait for the next Race”
“Torn by... - Good for running indoor, but timing and results are very confuses. No real podium for awards, no ceremony awards for kids, we were very disappointed”
“Timing and results?? - Great race, nice track. Two major comments:
1. The 10k was only aound 8.6k
2. The timing and results service is just not working at all, I still don't have time measured for me, while I finished way faster than the winner who was announced in my age category.
Next time let's just announce that there is no official timing and no age categories, then you can avoid the disappointments.”
“Great Indoor Race - 10k run in great place at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and Yas Mall .
“Not a 10km - I was looking forward to this run as it is a bit different and in general it was fun. However, 3 points I would like to make:
1. The course was not 10km, more around 9.3km - 9.4km
2. Water stations were giving out cups of water with the cover still on, incredibly hard to take off when running. Also, the water at the end was warm.
3. No atmosphere in the mall, the music in Ferrari World was very energetic but there was nothing in the mall.”
