“Festival but no giveaway - The event was expected to be better announced and publiced but it seemed otherwise. There was also no giveaway to participants, a small token of in the event may attract more people to join in. ”
“Almost - Hi, always enjoyed participating and not by any means do I consider myself to be a runner. Great venue, great event,
Just 3 things,
1. It didn't need to be that late in the evening and the 3 and 5k could have had closer start times and run concurrently.
2. What,....no finisher medal. Unheard of. Very surprised and disappointed.
3. The circuit was not 5k, but 5.5.so advertise it as 5.5 or its true length
fix those, and a typical great event.”
“Great prizes, long course - Overall this was a great event with great prize!
It was a late timing but due to the time of year, that was understandable.
My main concerns:
1. Course wasn't measured correctly. It was too long.
2. Due to the heat, there should be more water stations and a medical crew circling around the course constantly.
Other than that, thank you!!”
“Nice event but there is better - Prizes was too law comparing with the event, and there should be participation medals for all participants ”
“Fun late night race with cash prizes - I was surprised to see races posted this late in the season and also with a late evening run time. This was the first time I have seen cash prizes given for the adults and kids categories. Just wish I could be faster!! Thanks to all those who organized this event.”
“Awesome - Thank you for organizing these sports events , which are keeping us healthy and active .
Everything you are doing is excellent .”
“Unworthy to join again - I've been an avid fan of premieronline, however, I was looking forward to have the medal as a token (at least) of my participation. Medals doesnt cost that much for a 100. I assume everyone is expecting to receive one, race pack collection excluding the shirt will be fine for me, but the medal?? Come on... really disappointed. its been a classic exercise to receive one for everyone joining runs, but last nights' expectations were never met.. Really disappointing... :(”
“Waste of Money - 100 dirhams for some is just a scratch on their salary but for a breadweaner like me and striving to improve myself and participate in such event is a great boost in my confidence but the thing is; there isn't any medal ,no t-shirts as it was advertised,no freebies also. Put your shoes on our shoes and consider all types of people.
What is your goal? what isnyour purpose in this event?
Medal is just 5aed and no t-shirts as it was adverstised ;you even took our sizes!
“Not Worth 100AED (Ripoff) - I'm not sure i'm willing to give 100AED for a BIB again...
Come'on trainyas and startyas are free.
“Too expensive - The overall value for Money is definitely expensive. ”
“Disappointed about race pack - Very disapointed on the race pack.. when i registed thru the site they ask for the size of shirt and on the detailed of race its tere...even on the race pack envelop its written...but i did not recieve any...for 100 dirhams registration even the finisher dont have medal ..the only souvener for my 1st run is my number.
“100dhs is expensive for this event - Where's the T-shirt and finishers medal?? ”
“Very expensive with not enough benefits i.e T-shir - Could be cheaper or offer better price offering. ”
