9.3 I love this race Clinton Seager · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes
Edited on 20.09.2015

“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 ”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 27.09.2015
“Mr. Seager thank you for participating to our event this year too and congratulation once again for winning the unlimited category. Our team and our partners are committed to improve year by year and we are happy that participants like yourself appreciate the efforts that we are putting into it. We are happy to pass your generous feedback to the volunteers as well as they have been of a great help to us and we are sure they will really appreciate your kind words. Hope to see you again next year.”

4.9 I ran in support of Unicef charity. Patrick Labuca · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“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.

6.0 Participants-if you're not a winner,you're a loser · Participation 3 times I would take part again No
Edited on 18.09.2015

“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. ”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 27.09.2015
“Dear participant, thank you for participating to this event for the past 3 years and for your valuable feedback. We would like to apologize for not receiving a goodie bag and we would like to address this mistake therefore, please (at your convenience) write to [email protected] giving us more details of the category you’ve participated to prevent this from happening in the future. With regards of awarding the second place this decision has been taken to give more to the charity not to upset any participant. This event being a family event that welcomes professional runners in the community as well considers all participants winners by their kind nature of taking part to such noble cause. We hope to have the chance to welcome you back next year. ”

“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.”
