“It was an awesome day! - The route needed to be different as New Cairo weather (no trees all sunny) and up hill was so tough.
The same issue at certification collection! The certificates can be handed without names for easiness or already prepared by participants names to avoid the hassle.
Overall Cairo Runners are the best organizers for such huge events and I would be delighted to participate with them.
“awesome - I like this event i participated at maadi 2016 , elgouna 2017 and cairo 2018”
“احسنتم اليوم كان جميل جدااااااااا - النهابة وتسيلم الميداليات كان ممكن يكون افضل من كدة بس بشكل عام احسنتم وبالتوفيق دايما”
“Great experience - This people shown that ita possible to organize in Egypt an event with high standars”
“not a bad event but - Bag check was horrible and needs to be changed in future events. I waited for two hours and had to find the bag myself. It was a terrible end that gave me a bad feeling about the organization even though the event itself was well done”
“U rock Cairo Runneeeeeeers - Thank uuuuu.”
“Great day - Every things great for the event but the energy stop not enough for the runners please be carful the runners
Thank you premieronline & Cairo Runners ”

“Good - I took the half marathon and the time i needed refreshments i didn’t find them and thats s long distance !!!”
“Best experience for my my First full marathon - Everything was super except at the very end, we got lost at last kilo of 42 race - there was no sign of how to access finish line.
It was a little bit confusing
But beside that i had a fantastic time and +ve energy was excellent.
I would do it again and again and again :)
Thank you all for the great effort ”
“Great Job! - 10KM Race should also be time calculated by chip as the half and full marathon, there is not a big difference in ticket price already. Plus, it would motivate people a lot to pursue better results.”
“Proud we have this quality organization in Egypt - It was a great day, one of the best running events that I have ever attended, and one of the best events that Cairo Runners have ever organised, but my concern is about the "route".
It was a hills run, which made it more challenging and difficult.
I hope next time it will be a straight route if possible.
Thank you!!! You made my day :) ”
“Great running event with more room for improvement - The lockers can be organized in a much better way than how they were at the event yesterday. It may be a good idea to assign each bag a number plate and place them in the locker in numerical order, giving each bag owner a copy of the same number plate as that assigned to their bag. Then after the race, the bag owner can simply retrieve their bag by showing the number plate to the person esponsible for the bags who would know exactly where the bag is as they would be arranged in order. ”
“Proud and content to have participated - The idea behind choosing this route was very smart and strategic. Many volunteers along the way, felt very safe during and after the run. Lockers were okay. My bag was in safe hands but the organization lacked professionality and efficiency. Believe this can be a lot improved the next time. Would definitely go for it all over again. Thank you Cairo Runners!”
“Happy day - I am glad I took part of this event and looking forward to many to come but the timings weren’t clear for the 10 k and family run . It was a bit confusing ”
“Very good organized - تنظيم ممتاز ودقة الوقت والمنظمين فى غاية النظام
كذلك المشاركين فى الحدث على خلق والرقى فى الحدث بشكل عام
نشكركم premier online واشكر cairo runners
Thank you ”
“Awesome organization and route - I loved the route - it was so nice not to have to repeat any section of the course - and the hills make things interesting. Lots of water, electrolytes, dates, and bananas. And so nice that we started exactly on time! ”
“overall the event is good - The elevation was too much”
“Poor event - Pick up race kit . Small area no gel powder to buy . !
Changing route early morning before start!
Poor storage desk.
No moving toilet long route 42km. I went toilet in gas station!
Medic service very poor. I try to find spray from 15 km to 37 km!
One point only for electolite drinks ! Other point is finished!
Organizer in route left positions and some people lose finish line
Comedy think! . Two medal types for the same finisher !
Highly not recommended !”
“Not what I expected - Big disappointment, I never expected ots gonna be this bad. Cairo runners are good at everything but this this one sucked. I hated the route and the organizers are terribel. After the run i have to stand inline for an hour just to get my bags. ”
“Poor organization - Very poor organisation
No enough parking slots
No live tracking
Promised to have power drinks and there were none
Finish line was disaster
Long queue to get my staff from the lockers, which were not organised at all
Lost my wallet in the event and the organisers were not helpful at all and did not know where or whom to ask about lost belongings, they even did not bother themselves to ask for my contacts
“Superb team - You should all be really proud of what you are doing and the change you did to the sport world in Egpyt. never thought we could ever have the chance to run safely in Cairo. you always seem to out do yourselves and plan an even bigger and better event each time. Good luck to all and thank you is just not enough. waiting for more events to come”
“You are transforming Egypt.. seriously.. thank you - Great example of an amazingly inclusive event bringing serious runners with families with para athletes. All backgrounds.. seriously changing ppl and making them believe in themselves. The route was nasty with the slopes. Please consider a Nile or pyramids marathon. Much more impressive scenery. Please do something about the bottles. At least use the smallest size.. or just give us little ice cubes directly in our hands or sell something to hold the bottle. Pls consider long sleeve shirts.”
“Very well organized, really enjoyable experience - I only suggest to put more snacks..”
“This was by far the best running event in Egypt - 1. The 10 Km run didn't have a timing chip?! Which I was counting on for more accurate timing than my watch.
2. The bag check / lockers was horrible ... I spent 2 hours after the race standing trying to get my bag.
You could've put places for each race not all in one , or at least used any sort of sorting technique to make it faster.
Keep it up and can't wait for the next event .
Thanks you ”
“Organization is amazing route is awful - Better route next time”
“Efficient organization, excellent to have in Egypt - Very goof effort, but needs to be built up on, in terms of signages, timing and the refreshment stations.
10 K is a very importsnt event, we need to have it as an offixial race next time not a fun run.
New Cairo is the worst choice for the course, the elevation is the worst in Cairo, its a really hilly location, please reciew the number of injuries among participants, also the average time ofthe participants is below the normal average due to the nature of the location.”
“Plenty of space for improvement - Having all races finishing at the same time and place wasn’t a good idea. It was too hazardous for runners and kids.
Lane to and after finish line was too narrow.
There was almost no entertainment compared to 2016.
There should have been a faq section on the mobile app and on website since communication wasn’t regular and questions were repetitive.
Parking was a nightmare and not well organized
Lockers weren’t well organized and there were very few people looking after it
