“Great value for money! Boring course. - 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.”
“Great running event! - 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!”
“Great! - I had so much fun. I will participate next time.”
“Morning Run with the Fog - 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.”
“Excellent A+ - Thanks to Steven, AD SPORTS COUNCIL, the organizers , the volunteers. It is has been a great event. We cant ask for more.
Best regards to everyone who was involved.”
“Great community event - Great community event & very well organised.
Will definitely participate again”
“Well organised affordable race - 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.”
“Amazing Half Marathon - Amazing event for it's registration price. Thanks to the amazing organization, and hope to see more half marathon distances like these in future.”
“Run smooth and wonderfull foggy environment - 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.”
“4 loops for an halfmarathon became really boring. - Why not use the complete corniche ?”
“Excellent event! - 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!”
“A good running experience on foggy condition - 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.”
“Bravo to organisers - Extremely well organized. Well done to everyone involve”
“Great value for money! - 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! ”
“Its foggy so adjust the start time! - 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.”
“Thanks for bringing one more HM at Abu Dhabi - Please provide banana and energy drinks for 21 K runners.
Look forward a Full Marathon from Abu Dhabi Sports Council.”
“Nice RUN event. i hope there is more to come. - Nice RUN event. i hope there is more to come.”
“Parking - 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!”
“It was good experience - Thanks”
“An adventurous running event - 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.”
“Well organized for a young running event - I hope they will include Emirates Palace and Marina Mall Area for the course. The view in that area is amazing.”
“Amazing Organization - The event was organised very well. Everything was perfect.”
“Fun for the whole family. Will do it again - The whole family enjoyed the event. They all participated at different age group.
Very good value for the money.
Will do it again.”
“Amazing one! - 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!”
“disappointed - 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...
“Good - Needs to put Lockers”
“Great Run in the Foggy Corniche! - 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.”
“THE BEST - Very organized event as usual. Well done to all the organizers! ”
“Good race. - No giveaways but i think it is just fair considering the price. So it is good overall.”
“Value for money - I loved the organisation and the simplicity of the event. It was fun! ”
