“Nice run but expensive - Although I like the event as the first of the season, it is very expensive, even though it is a charity run. Also, why couldn't a part of the run be outside?”
“Good event - nice idea for an indoor run - Disappointed about the results, no results available 3 days after the run?!”
“Good to be able to run indoors - As it's the first race of the season, it's great we are able to run indoors to avoid the heat”
“Nice race for a good cause - Very good organization, parking nearby, original place”
“Well organized event. - I'd love to participate again.”
“Nice - On return we pay parking charge.That is a bad experience.Over all very nice”
“Good first race of the season - Thank you for arranging free parking”
“I love this race - Not many (if any) organizers in the UAE take the feedback provided on Premier Online seriously enough, but Aloft and AD Striders have outdone themselves this year with a great course (no horrible zigzags), chip timing, and syncing the finish of the unlimited distance with the finish of the last race of the day. I really had a great day running my 8 hours and all the volunteers were so supportive and friendly. The price is really good as well, literally the best value for money in the country ”
“Ok - Please change the music as it was not enjoyable - the best music was during the childrens 1 lap race”
“Enjoyable event and much better course layout - Parking info was much clearer (and free this year), the course layout much better with fewer tight turns and I beat my time from last year by 3 mins!! So overall, a good event and thanks to everyone behind the scenes for the organisation / marshalling etc.”
“I ran in support of Unicef charity. - Running for a good cause, in support of Unicef, was my main motivation to join this run.
It's my first time to run indoors, and it was good to stretch my legs for a 'long run' in an airconditioned venue.
I would comment though, that for people like me who were not familiar with the venue, there were no signages of the event setup outside Adnec to guide us through.”
“It was a soothing experience running for good - Happy to see small kids running for good cause.we had a great time.”
“I can't seems to find a way to look at my results - I did The 20 K run it would have been useful to have kilometre markers along the course.”
“Expensive regarding the quality of support - I understand that the aim is to collect money for children but the goodies were very poor.”
“Participants-if you're not a winner,you're a loser - Really enjoyed the race.I have regularly taken part In this run and enjoyed the race. however this year, not so much. I was disappointed that I did not get a goodie bag like previous years. I came second in my race and went to the prize ceremony thinking that I would receive a prize for my place, like in previous years. However I did not. It seems this race promotes 'if you're not a winner you're a loser'. This is not the ethos a charity run should promote. I doubt I'l take part again. ”
“Well organised and fun....for a good cause - I enjoy this early season opportunity to stretch the legs in air conditioned comfort. Credit to the organisers for upping their game and pulling it off....it gets better with each year. Course was better and easier to run than last year. Still think it would be good to have a km marker at the mid-point of the circuit. Happy to continue to participate to raise funds for UNICEF.”
“A fun indoor event ☺ - A great way to spend a Friday morning ☺”
“Bigger and better each year - Better route without sharp u-turns.
Be good to have the music playing louder - helps provide some encouraging atmosphere.
Sequencing was improved - much better to have 20km runners starting hour before 10km so more people around as energy levels drop!
Good to have timing capability this year - will see how good the company is”
“A fantastic, fun, family event - Well organised, nice and informal, air conditioned running/walking; perfect!”
