“Thank you for a well organized race.”
“Great to see more and more people getting involved in these events on the corniche. ”
“A relatively easy course along the Abu Dhabi Corniche. The only drawback is that it can get repetitive for longer distances as you have to repeat laps. Would prefer a longer route to keep things interesting. ”
“Water to be presented in more easy way to open.”
“Energy drinks to be made available at water stations especially for those running the half marathon. Different medals for different distances was very smart - we really liked this and I personally loved the black medal for the half marathoners. The course for the 21.1km gets boring however, after doing it for 4 laps. We hope next time the course will either be longer or different than this. ”
“Although running half marathon in so short course can desmotivate you with so many u-turns, my overall classification is that it was a good event.
One point related to litter produced during the event. There were a lot of plastics bottles laying down in the floor. It's also organization responsibility to proper manage it (and i'm not talking about litter collection after the event). There are very cheap ways of reduce the litter laying down in the floor during the events. If any help let me kn”
“Add Series 4 in April 2018. Marshalls should remind runners who can not sustain to run the whole race to always walk on the side and clear the way for runners. No runners must take selfie while doing the race.”
“Last time i attended a 5k race near Marina mall which was ok
But this time at corniche it was nice and very well organized
Looking forward for the next race
Keep it up”
“Difficulty finding a parking. finally got a parking very far away!”
“Nice event but need more organized ”
“It’s a good organization to monitore my score through a professional event.
Since the price is changed for the evens the service have got a bit worse about messaging the score or emailing it. Hope this can help or remind them to resolve it”
“The organizers are very friendly and supportive! I love the energy they're giving to runners.”
“Looking forward for more half marathons like these in the year coming up. Well done to Steve & his team. One of the better aspects of the race was its cheap registration price, and cutting away useless giveaways that would've otherwise bumped up the price.
Hope to see the the race series continue in the 2018-19 running season.”
“1) Most of my running friends did not even hear about this. Thats a big drawback. Even i came to know through Premier Online while checking if there were any obstacle races coming up.”
“It was a nice race, well organized.
i liked the unique medal for each category.”
“I believe much more people could join this events with better advertisement of them.”
“Thank you organizers, it is my firat time to run after abtaxi hit me 3 years ago. Thank you”
“Although the event was well organised and well attended, the course was dire and unimaginative, with all the great areas in Abu Dhabi a 2 lap course on th corniche road was terrible I'm sure the half marathon guy were going crazy "4 laps" come on organises let's be creative next time”
