8.3 Great value for money! Boring course. · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“Overall, great value for money! However, while running on the Corniche Path is great, running on the Corniche Rd is boring -- a single, perfectly straight 2.5 km section of road back and forth made the run seem really long. It'd be great to move either a) wrapping from the Corniche Rd to Marina Mall Rd, or b) up onto the Corniche Path. Also, parking was quite a challenge at this location. Having a start/finish near Nation Towers would allow use of the large, public lot. But overall, great value.”

7.5 Great running event! · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Enjoyed this race. Speed of publishing results online was impressive! Not sure why people are complaining about parking - there were lots of parking and I arrived about less than half an hour before! I thought there were enough water stations. As to the cons, the medal was a disappointment as they are the same regardless of what race or distance you did. Start line was a free-for-all regardless of your speed. This could be better organized. Otherwise, great event!”

10.0 Great! Edabelle Veloso · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“I had so much fun. I will participate next time.”

9.0 Morning Run with the Fog Hilal Salman · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Good organization, Steven was amazing as usual to take care of every detail. i just have two comments about the medal, its the same as previous races, and it doesnt show which distance was crossed so the 5K, 10k, and 21K took the same medal.”

10.0 Excellent Ferran Pacheco Bell · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes
10.0 Excellent A+ Abdelkader Zerougui · Participation 5 times I would take part again Yes

“Great community event & very well organised. Will definitely participate again”

8.3 Well organised affordable race Amanda Lonsdale · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“A very well organised, event, with a bargain price tag. Running in the fog was a novelty! The looped course was ok for the 10km run, I wouldn't have fancied doing it four times for the half, but it was nice to see my friends who were also running when we passed each other.”

9.0 Amazing Half Marathon Moumen Rezaei · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Amazing event for it's registration price. Thanks to the amazing organization, and hope to see more half marathon distances like these in future.”

9.3 Run smooth and wonderfull foggy environment · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“Event run smoothly.. The foggy weather is good for runner even though some participants might hard to reach the venue.. fee is cheap and other running event should be below AED100.”

6.5 4 loops for an halfmarathon became really boring. Frank Kettner · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“Why not use the complete corniche ?”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 24.12.2017
“Thanks Frank for your feedback. Closing the corniche and the logistics involved are our challenge. For some the looping course brought more atmosphere and ability to encourage and be encouraged by other runners ”

9.5 Excellent event! Khawar Siddique · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Thank you Gulf Multi Sport and Abu Dhabi Sports Council for bringing to us another great event! Lovely weather was just an icing on the cake:) Hope to see more of these events!”

7.8 well-organized race Marina Belan · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
8.8 Affordable, Fun Run! Murali Ramakrishnan · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
4.5 A good running experience on foggy condition · Participation 1 time I would take part again No

“I suffered for leg crumps and disappointingly support station is too far. At least dedicate a medic specially on the last few miles of the race wherein runners get tired and exhausted. Fruits such as banana and apple also helps after the event.”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 24.12.2017
“Sorry to hear you had issues with cramps we had volunteers and staff spread along the course with radio comms back to the event desk. Please always ask for help and we will come ”

10.0 Bravo to organisers · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Extremely well organized. Well done to everyone involve”

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

“A great event for the price! Well organised and a good atmosphere. My only complaint is the support stations. Some of the volunteers were happy just to sit and play on their phones instead of helping out. Water was left on the table with lids on and no assistance in passing it. The volunteers have no cheers or words of encouragement that often helps runners. Also, can we have a medal that says 21km, and not a generic one? Thank you! ”

6.0 Its foggy so adjust the start time! · Participation 6+ times I would take part again Yes

“Please learn to consider in adjusting the start times due to extreme weather conditions like FOG. Not all people come from the same area/places.”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 24.12.2017
“Thanks for your feedback. We did start a little later due to checking in one the numbers of people who had registered and picked up ”

7.5 Thanks for bringing one more HM at Abu Dhabi · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

7.0 Parking · Participation 2 times I would take part again No

“Parking for the race was a big concern! had to search for the parking at least for 10 minutes. Most of the parking was blocked!”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 24.12.2017
“Thanks for your feedback. Our event guide and emails gave clear suggestions to park at the Public Beach Car Park and walk the 600 metres from their to the muster point. We are sorry that you were inconvenienced ”

9.3 Well done Anand Venkatasamy · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
6.8 An adventurous running event Sohaib Jamal · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“Hi, great run! It is a better way to motivate if your medal would have the date or race number 1/3 To invite people and distinguish from the upcoming races.”

8.5 Well organized for a young running event · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

10.0 Amazing one! Tetiana Maltseva · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Another amazing event organized by GulfMultisport. Despite of poor weather conditions, the organization was excellent and I enjoyed the run a lot. The route was exactly 21km and despite of running 4 same laps, it wasn't boring at all. Volunteers did a great job and there were enough of water stations. And of course, nice medals :) No complaints, only compliments!”

8.8 great run with great weather... · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
Edited on 22.12.2017
6.0 disappointed Soula Sophie · Participation 1 time I would take part again No

“A good weather.... The car park is too small.... On the word support stations i think the word support means help or distribute and not stay sit down... ”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 22.12.2017
“Thanks Soula, we welcome your feedback and appreciate the constructive thoughts. The event guide and written instructions suggested participants park in the Public Beach Car park which was a approx 500 metres from the muster area and hold over 1,000 spots, which is more than adequate,. We accept that not all read the guides and given the weather most wanted to aprk as close as possible to the start line.”

7.0 Good · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Needs to put Lockers”

7.8 Great Run in the Foggy Corniche! Fatima Al Raeesi · Participation 4 times I would take part again Yes

“The course was great. Weather helped a lot. Parking was bad and insufficient for all participants. The support stations (the one in the green cones with all guys) weree not helpful at all. They were all sitting and the guy running in front of me was asking for water and one of them said it's in the box.. I had to shout and tell them you need to be more helpful, stand and hand us the water please! The medals for 5km 10km & 21.1km were all the same!! A tiny sticker with the distance would do it.”
