I would take part again
8.6 great location for run away from the Summer heat · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“I think it is an event that should be repeated as I enjoyed the novelty of running round the shopping mall in the AC away from the blistering heat outside. There were issues with the timing, but I know that this is a new set of kit so I am sure will improve with time. Price was excellent. It would be even better if we could loop around Ferrari World as well. Thanks to the volunteers & marshals. Probably should start at 8am next time so that there is not so much of a rush at the end. ”

7.3 Great indoor run Jayson Angelo Castillo · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“Hopefully next time some freebies from sponsors”

8.0 Excellent event Abdelkader Zerougui · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“I was second in my age category but did not get my medal because of the timing problem. However, the event is excellent and thank you to the organizer -Steve- and all the volunteers and the participants. Hope to get this indoor event every month during the summer time. Regards”

7.7 Great event really enjoyed it Jari Pulkkinen · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Unfortunately the prize ceremony awarded the wrong runners in the 2.5k. My daughter who was overall second was disappointed not being presented as winner in her category. Hope this was a one time error”

“Hi Jari, Apologies for the error on Friday. We seemed to have a few teething issues with our new timing services which we are working on. We can organise a medal for your daughter and hope to see you at our next event ...steve please email me”

8.9 Great value for money Khawar Siddique · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Great initiative by the organizers. Superb support by the volunteers. Hope to see more indoor events.”

5.9 First one... second one will be better Christophe Miegeville · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“It was a brilliant idea with a technical course that required some skill and strength in the hair pins to catch up the speed. But mainly it was awesome to run in temperature controlled area during the UAE summer. thanks for this. Now, a lot needs to be improved. nice marshal cheerings, but forgetting to show the way properly (one nearly made me fall down to make sure i was going the right way), timing has been a real mess and too much impro by organization...You have used us to much better ;o)”

9.1 Great family indoor event at the mall for all ages Joseph Khater · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“The event was really great! 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. Keep up the good work and thank you Abu Dhabi Sports Council for this event. ”

9.5 Fantastic to get a race in the AC David Morrison · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Thanks to the event organizers and sponsors. ”

9.1 Great run inside a mall Dagmar Reich · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Fanatstic idea to have an indoor run avoiding high outside temperatures and humidity. Initially I thought it might be boring to run along the shops but I really enjoyed it. Only thing to complain is the timing; there were too many mistakes. With the Premier Timing chip this never happened and participants received a SMS with the finish time within minutes after the race. The finisher list was several times revised.”

8.2 Chillaxing Run in cool air · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Recommend to have more in summer. Next one(August) is too far away:) ”

9.3 Great · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
8.0 A "cool" run in May · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
Edited on 18.05.2017

“As an avid race runner, I feel sad that as we head into the summer, running races are harder and harder to come by. That is why I was so happy to have found an indoor 10 km race! Who knew? I think Dubai should follow suit and have more races organized in malls during the summer. That way, avid race runners like me can run all year round! It would be great to have a 10km race in The Dubai Mall. Or why not a half marathon? The Yas Mall race was very well organized. Kudos to all! Full marks!”

8.9 Great race Jasmine Pitman · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Will be keen to race more”

8.6 I hope there will be more indoor runs :) Tetiana Maltseva · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“The event was really great! 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! Finisher medals were also cool - the best finisher medal I've ever received. All in all - the event was amazing especially considering price for participation. The saddest thing is that results and timing were messed up and as a result, real winners didn't take their awards :( Is there still any chance to get medal? :)”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 13.05.2017
“Hi Tetiana thank you for the feedback. Yes we had an issue with timing yesterday as we were thrown a few curve balls. We are working through the results and yes we have medals available for those who were rightfully palced.”

9.8 Hope there will be more mall races! Cecile Strydom · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“We really enjoyed the run. Nice event. Thank you for the help and contacting us. Highly appreciated! Hope to see more runs in the malls.”

8.9 Great value for AED50! Mark Dolman · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“The results for the 10km were a little slow to come through, but I believe this a new timing system, so a few teething problems. My time was exactly as expected. Only concern I have is the course was slightly wet on one corner where somebody had spilt some water and on the polished floor it was extremely slippy and I was lucky not to fall. All in all, a great morning out and fantastic value for money. Well done team!”

6.4 Could have been organized better · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“The event was great. Start line was a bit of a mess, microphone/Speakers weren't clear enough to know what's happening. Timing and Results were a bit late. As compared to other outdoor events, NO PICTURES! It would have been nice to have those pics, especially with family.”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 13.05.2017
“WE hope that other than the poor accoustics you enjoyed the event. For Dhs 50 it is hopefully value for money”

8.0 Awesome Run Fatima Al Raeesi · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“I loved it. Thank you Abu Dhabi Sports Council for this event. We hope there are more to come. Everything was perfect except for our timings being messed up. The 10km Female Open category awards were given to the wrong people. The real winners (1st & 3rd Place) managed to get their medals but the results posted online are still wrong. I hope this can be fixed as timings are quite significant to the participants. ”
