I would take part again
10.0 Na Carolyn Wolsey · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Na”

7.6 Finish Line and other · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“I would recommend the end of the race NOT contain a 90 degree turn. This makes any real sprint to the finish impossible. Very disappointing. Also the 'event pack' shirt sizes need to be reconsidered. All way too small. One more thing - a BIG timer over the Start-Finish gate would be helpful. Thanks.”

10.0 Great race! Marina Apostolova · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Great race, very well organized, lovely crowd, great volunteers who provided encouragement along the race. Keep up the good work! ”

10.0 Fantastic Run · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“It was fantastic!”

9.5 Great morning · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes

“Lovely to see such a well organised event in qatar! ”

8.9 Great race, well organised, great atmosphere Tom Whateley · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes

“When giving out numbers, I got a lot of comments asking why they had to bring a copy of ID. No one could check as we had no lists of who was registered for each number. It all seemed to work out fine, but it felt a little like it could have gone a bit wrong. Not having lists certainly made giving out numbers easier and faster though. Race itself was fun. Prize giving was a bit confusing. No one knew what the prizes were for when they were being given out. Think that less categories would be better. Giving prizes to the winners of 10k and 5k would be nice too. ”

9.6 A first for me and I enjoyed myself! Celine Augay · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“See you next year!”

9.4 Well organised and on time. Mary Muyanja · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“The event went well and I enjoyed participating in it. Although the giveaways were on the whole good, the female t-shirts were a bit of a disappointment as they hardly fit.”

9.0 Great Event as always Yvette Haring · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“I first heard through of this event through word of mouth, and each year a group of us encourages each other to run it. Great community event.”

5.7 It was okay · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
10.0 Provsino singleno singlet... Greg Guevara · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Everything was perfect! except that it is too expensive and have no singlet at all. ”

6.1 Well organised event · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“My first run in Doha. A bit expensive but very well organised. I would suggest better advertising and awareness of the event for future. Very few people know about these events. ”

8.3 Superbly organised friendly event · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
6.0 Great event, well organised, lovely atmosphere Chris Arthey · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“The funneled start worked really well, even those of us in the pack weren't held up at all by other runners. It didn't affect me, but there was a bit of confusion about the route division after 5km and some thought the finish was 100m before the actual finish. I had a grumpy achilles, and it didn't like the cobbles very much. No medium T-shirts left when I got there! The supporters were very noisy - they gave superb encouragement! Nice work.”

9.7 Excellent Ian Hudson · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“Great!”

8.8 Good run; room for improvement Swakshar Basu · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“It was a good run. volunteers were helpful in handing out water. Signages of kms completed should have been more prominent at intervals e.g. 2km, 3km, 4km and 5 km. Otherwise, it was worth the run. Breakfast menu can be improved. ”

9.4 Very good race and good organisation · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
9.6 Exceeded expectations for my first 10km Race · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“A really well organised event. Very clear pre-race instructions that were regularly updated. Marshalls were great and there was no chance of getting lost or taking a wrong turn along the way! Very happy with the goody bag and some brekkie was very welcome at the end. Perhaps the constraint of running both a 5km and 10km necessitated the U-Turn at the Start/Finish but this was quite tight. Although I can see how you had to loop people through for timing purposes but it should be looked at again. The PA System wasn't powerful enough at the presentation and it wasn't clear where to check for the category placings on the day Overall, really enjoyed the race and will be back for more”

8.5 Overall good event · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe
9.4 A very good organised run · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“My only comment really is that the speaker system was poorly set up in regards to the stage and you could not hear the presentations or information very well. Breakfast food was very nice and very welcomed. Coffee was terrible. Advertising could do with improvement. I only knew about this from a friend, like most events in Qatar. Looking forward to next years event. Good work.”

9.2 Happening event with lots of support frm volunteer Yusry Jusoh · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“This is my first event/Run in Qatar for 10k. This event motivated me especially from large number of participants/runners, good support from volunteers, nice medal & goodies (esp T shirt), good results/timing reading, nice photos & video. Thanks to orgniser and absolutely I will join again next year. Please revisit the fees for next year or at least maintain the same or reduce to QAR150.”

8.3 The race was a great experience, well organised Hadi Nassar · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“I would suggest healthier food and more medium Give awat T-shirt sizes, other than that everything was great”

7.5 A well managed event Puneet Kohli · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Although it was a well managed event, the pre run registration should have been a bit better laid out. The snacks should be of a better spread. Otherwise a nice event. ”

7.3 Will run again, but room for improvement Kelsy Holmes · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“I would definitely run this race again, but there is room for improvement. It would have been nice to line up at the start line based on pace. There were some walker who started at the beginning of the pack. It is harder to navigate around these people at the beginning of the race. I would have appreciated running of the soft path instead of the cobblestones. The ladies shirts were very small. They might have been children sizes. Although, packet pick-up was excellent.”

8.9 Great Run · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Overall was Great!! I still have comments regarding the lanes for starting/finish line its so small i think its better widen it for the next time. Others might confused runners for 5k or 10k because at the finish line, you dont exactly would know if you are the fastest 5k runner because they started the same time, so @ first there are some fast runners for 10k other than 5k,who is faster than 5k runners so for me i would think thats my competitor in 5k.all i know if he/she's in 10k if he/she uses the u-turn lane near the finish line.Thank you.”

7.1 Well Organized event loved it Ale Raza · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Well Organized event loved it, will participate again.”

8.6 Fantastic really well organised,great atmosphere Ali Walters · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“Seriously, a great event ! Course was very clear, wonderful to have so many supporters along the way, the cheering really helps. Small point but we really don't need such a generous gift bag, one item T shirt or water bottle we'd easily suffice or a cap. whatever is cheapest.especially when we are also given cooked breakfast! Well done all involved!”

8.5 Thanks! · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
8.8 Great event Ryan Peden · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Would have been good to have the speakers closer to the stage as couldn't hear the announcements clearly”

8.8 Better and better each year... Jen Hammonds · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“Would really love to run more in the Aspire park so that we have the beauty around us... so rare in Doha! ”

9.3 My first race Jacqueline McMaster · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“The only thing that was a bit chaotic was collecting our bibs...the sign on the wall should be alphabetical order of names so we can find our number more easily. ”

6.5 Room for Improvement · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“Nice to see more events like this in Qatar. ”

8.4 Well organised... Great event! Brett Jones · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“The event was well organized, with good regular communication received from the organisers. The only comment I have (and it was by no means the end of the world), is that the cobbles are quite tough to run on... I know - I need to toughen up. Overall, it was a great experience and I would like to commend the organisers and volunteers”

7.5 GREAT event even if the finish was not clear. Cindy Babski · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“I thought the event was incredibly well organized. I appreciated the detailed emails prior to the event. However, I thought that the end of the race was not clear at all. I've never been in a race that loops around past the finishing tape. Unfortuantely, I did not complete the full loop and my end time was not recorded. Perhaps that detail could be mentioned in the emails preceding the event. Otherwise, I thought the gifts were great; the food stunning. NEVER have I seen that at a race. Well done!”

9.1 Very enjoyable race, and well organised · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
8.0 A great event Lori Hovey · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“I think the run went very well, and the great weather certainly helped to make for a good event.”

9.2 Good event. Had so much fun Fadillah Mohd Ghazali · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“The starting and finishing line is bit narrow. It would be so much better without the u-turn at the finishing line coz its hard to sprint to the finishing line ”

9.2 Expensive. Neville Pettersson · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Well organised and well run event.”

10.0 Excellent · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
9.6 Good · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“In Average Was a good race, however the price for a 10K it's quite expensive. in my personal opinion the event pack collection must be, during the previous week to the race. Great effort from the organizers. Thanks, hope see you next year.”

8.1 Still dont know what my result was Ameera Makki · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Was told i could find my race time after the race but i still dont know what i got. i have been checking online but cant find anything. Quality of giveaways need improvement. Medals were a cheap sticker placed on the medals. ”

9.7 Excellent event in interesting place Andrzej Boryslawski · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Excellent event in interesting place! I will improve Start and Finish orientation for 10k runners. For 10k runners they must slow down and take sharp U-turn losing time. ”

7.8 Great! Change the u-turn though. Ali Longmate · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes

“Brilliantly organised. Next time though, please make the u-turn at 5km and finish much much wider, is too tight and difficult to have to slow down then sprint finish after that. Also might be good to remind fun runners and slower runners to be more considerate of the mentalists like me who want to get a good time. I nearly fell. Overall though, this event has consistently been one of the best organised events in Doha and certainly the best organised sporting event. Well done! Ali Longmate ”

10.0 Well run and good fun! Nadine Tull · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“More information on what any profit is used for would be helpful. Not clear if it goes to the school or not.”

9.6 5km run Jane Milne · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“A thoroughly enjoyable experience!”

6.8 90% Elena Chiti · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“I will suggest the possibility to pay even in cash because just online and with money transfer can be an issue for who is from a foreign country. Moreover, I think it should be selected another path for the race: there are some parts with little stones on the floor that don't make the running confortable and safe, according to my opinion Finally, I still don't know my official time: it is not clear where can I find this information.”

9.6 Great event ! Steven Horn · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“Well organised and executed.”

9.2 Very good, but too expensive · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“Good organisation, but way to expensive, although the T-shirt is of good quality. A price between 50 and 100 QAR would be more acceptable.”

9.2 Great event, great course, very well organised Mark Wright · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“The finish line needs to be clearer (more marshalls shouting out instructons/better signage). Well done.”

8.5 Well organised, morning run when weather is good. · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes

“Friendly support crew, enthusiastic organisers. Bibs and chips very tech smart. Thanks”

“The event was excellent and well organized!”

8.0 Great event with good atmosphere. Nicholas Taylor · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

10.0 A good event · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes
7.8 Good event, no major complaints · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“Very well organised event - marshalling was excellent, atmosphere great fun.”

10.0 Good race, great volunteers Craig Field · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Really nice race, great volunteers & well organised. I thought the breakfast was pretty ordinary. Eggs & beans really didn't cut it compared with some I've been too. ”

9.2 Fantastic Guido Maria Solari · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“It was my first race ever but I believe everything was perfect. Thank you.”

8.9 Great event Alejandra Caramanica · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

10.0 Well organised · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“It's really handy to have events in Doha and not to have to travel to the UAE for races. Please continue these events!We were kept informed about the race.”

8.0 Professional event! Kenneth Callens · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
8.3 A well organised and well attended event. Paul Simmonite · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
10.0 Excellent event · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
9.2 Very well organised event Don Elliott · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
9.5 I heard about it through a friend Samm Thompson · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Thanks for a great morning! I was on a high all day after completing the race! There are just one or two comments I'd like to make as feedback. On the day it was very difficult to hear the PA system, which was a shame as I would have liked to have heard the prize ceremony. After the event I logged on to Premier Marathons to find out my time, but couldn't see how to find it. It was only by a friend sending me a link to the correct site could I find out my time. Perhaps information of where to go to find out your time could be put in the finishing pack? The t-shirts given in the finishing pack are great to have as memorabilia of the event, however the sizes were coming up very small - for the ladies at least! Many thanks again!”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 24.11.2013
“Thank you. The pre-race e-mail contained the full details of where to find results.”

7.8 A good race · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“My comments: The breakfast was good this year - fresh scrambled eggs! Make the final turn more gradual, more like a hairpin turn - not so sharp. The awards given in 2013 were not as nice s 2012's. Please go back to that supplier. The t-shirt was lighter (better) than 2012. There were enough S/M, for me anyway. The white bag is not needed. I am doubtful many people would use it after the race, making it a waste. The corrals near the start are dangerous, with the little metal feet sticking out. I hope no one tripped on them. The marshals were great, plentiful and enthusiastic. The volume at the awards could have been higher - or maybe the speakers were not facing the front. Overall, a great job; very professional.”

8.5 Good event, I will run it again next year. · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“The marshaling was great and all the support around the route. Suggestions : - Maybe staggered race, 5km first and at end of that run the 10 km. The start area shouldn't be so narrow. - some fun prices for competitors if sponsored in the future. ”

10.0 Already excited for next year's event. · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes

“Few of the water station was already empty during the second lap for 10Km. I had recieved a shirt that was a little bit large for me, xxl, m & l are already exhausted. It was a surprice when they are giving medals coz last year it was not there. The volunteers are awesome. They kept us going through out the race. The food after the race was great, very helpful during our recovery. Bib collection was organized really well. Overall, a fantastic job by the organizers. A request though, would it be possible if you could cut off a little bit on the race fee? Thanks a bunch for such an amazing organized race. Looking forward to next year.”

7.3  Allam Asmar · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
10.0 Everything was just amazing Heleen Corby · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Will do this race for sure again and I realy enjoyed the run.”

10.0 Very good event Tony Anderson · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“Very good event, although a little expensive.. Everything else was excellent apart from the U Turn at and the different lanes at the finish... Please get rid of the U turn and the different lanes... Apart from that very good..”

9.2 A great event, right time of day and year. Emma Hambling · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“A great event. Worked brilliantly. This event should be on everyones calendar for the year. A great opener for the cooler season in Qatar. Great work at promoting a healthy outdoor lifestyle.”

8.9 Excellent venue and organisation. · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes
10.0 Great Race. I had a very good time · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“I had a lot of fun at the event. Every thing was perfect. Only thing where I would rate you less is the give aways. I did not find the correct size of shirt. Otherwise I liked the quality of giveaways etc.”

8.0 Start & finish line Jesús Martos · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“The U shape at Starting and Finishig the race was horrible. Please change this for future editions Thanks”

8.7 Fun and well organised! Amy Allison · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Very good! Well organised and so much fun. Will be doing the next one for sure ”

8.6 It was again a great events and very good fun Arnaud Bouleau · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes
10.0 DC delivers another great event Michael Hancock · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes

“Doha College really puts on a great party. It's great to come out and enjoy the run, the buzz, the crowd. It's all you hope for in terms of organisation, and the fantastic volunteers all along the course really keep you going. We have Doha College to thank for fuelling the running community here in Doha. Minor improvements might still be possible: figure out a way to take last minute registrations (even if untimed)? Is there a way to start the awards ceremony a little sooner? ”

8.5 Great day · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Add links with results !!”

5.9 A good race with a few issues Amélie Willemot · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“Friendly organisers, nice weather, course is good but... Th wonky issue is the starting corridor which is way too narrow and the u-turn one has to take before reaching the finish line... Keep it up!”

10.0 Great morning's run! · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“The event was extremely well organised. The marshals were posted at regular intervals and were very supportive, cheering, clapping and providing water. The food at the end was excellent and the medal and t shirt were of a really good standard. The overall experience was very positive and the atmosphere outside Doha Torch was amazing,”

7.0 Almost there Fernando Correa · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Overall, the race was very good. Just few points: First, the arrival was not very clear, so I saw a lot of runners stop before the finish line, because they cross the portico and didn't know they still have to continue to run for another 100 meters. Second, my GPS finish with 9,95 km. So for sure the race have less than 10 km, otherwise I suppose to have at least 10,1 km. If is possible, next time the race could be measured by AIMS. Luckily, the weather was good. But in case of rain, I think the race could have some problems, because of that floor is very slippery when wet. For positive points, have plenty of water available, the volunteers made a big difference and are very friendly during the hole course. And I still have to thanks all you guys, because I made my PB on 10 km in this race. Regards Fernando Correa”

9.6 One of my friends shared the event on Facebook Prisca Nemer · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“I really enjoyed it... it was nice to meet all these people and run altogether in one big event... Thank you ”

10.0 Great day...a bit steep but enjoyable nevertheless Gary Webster · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
9.5 Perfect coordination and logistics! Enrique Schmilinsky · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Great job, see you next year!”

8.6 Excellent organisation. Claire Young · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“Great atmosphere. Very well organised. Course a bit tough on the legs on the hard interlocking blocks. Bag and medal very nice, Tshirts came up very small. Breakfast lovely-scrambled eggs, baked beans and hot tea. Mmmmm. Results online very quickly. Would definitely do it again!”

9.5 Everything was great and had a great time. Enrique Fajardo · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
9.6 Very good Jane Taylor · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“It was very well organized...I enjoyed it! ”

10.0 It is/was a great event. Superbly organized. Primo Pitogo · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“I had a great run, and for the first time I was able to time my run perfectly. The event by so far the best I have been into. Everything was well coordinated from the registration, to the run and especially the after event. I feel like I am attending a socialization gathering where everyone had a great time.”

10.0 Loved the atmosphere, great morning for a run · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
7.9 Thank you for all the work! Really appreciate race Tara Boudreau · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes

“Communication is wonderful. Super organized. Love having so many cheerful, positive volunteers. Would love to be able to run on something other than the cobblestone, but I'm sure that must be out of your control. Thanks for all the hard work and know that it is a highlight for us amateur runners! Thank you! ”

9.6 Doha College 2013 · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
9.1 Its a fun experience Gerard John Arcenas · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
9.2 Running surface Michele Hussey · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“I was surprised that we ran almost the whole thing on brick/road. I envisioned running on the Aspire Park cushioned pathways. I am sure there were good reasons (course simplicity/feasibility, I presume). Even so, I would run it again as is.”

8.6 Awesome event experience · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
9.5 Thanks; it was great. · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“It would have been better to have the route e-mailed with the instructions rather than having to download it. Otherwise the map was good and made it clear what to expect”

8.5 Great Fun!!!! · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“For my first 5km run/walk I thought it was fantastic! Well done and I'm already looking forward to the next DC event!”

10.0 Fine touches not pos on screen. Num rating better. · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Fantastic atmosphere!!! Well organised!!! Thankyou! ”

6.0 Race was nice, atmosphere was great! · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“The run was overpriced compared to other runs of the same distance in Doha. Also t-shirts were very small-tiny infact- should have taken a XXL instead of a M! The medal is absolutely pointless-there is no need to give these at the end of races, only to the winner. Overall the atmosphere was great-well done! ”

9.6 Amazing! :) Vasiliki Damalou · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes

“Everything was excellent! Very nice organization!!! Only problem is the sleeves of the t-shirt are too small :( Thank you again and again for every year of organization!!! ”

7.4 Great event Sinead Mc Hale · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Marshalls along the way were very supportive Ladies toilet facilities were pretty bad - only four stalls - two of which were squatty potties Overall though great experiences”

9.5 Great event! Prakash Krishnamachari · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Great run, very well organised, great volunteers and crowd support... Kudos to the organisers!”

10.0 Through a friend Sarah Lawson · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Very well organised race, good route, plenty of water, cheering stewards/supporters and a breakfast at the end! Both my husband and I were very pleased with the organisation, especially considering the usual disorganisation of events (not running) in Qatar. We will definitely do this race again. Only comment for improvement would be to have a list in alaphabetical order for running numbers not numerical as for those people who did not know their number it was difficult to find, thank you for putting on this race, please continue and keep up good work”

9.1 Excellent Gary Ballinger · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“I was very impressed with the smooth organisation of this event in its entirety. From online registration, regular updates on organisation for the day, the pre-race check in, the race itself and the fantastic support from the race side officials. I will certainly do this event again. ”

9.3 Well organized, excellent stations, needs green Eric Baland · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“The race was a lot of fun. There were a lot of cheers and plenty of water. Lots of participants too. Registration was fast and easy, and the post race breakfast was superb. My only suggestion would be to alter the race course to include a more natural setting. Go out into the park, around the lake, around the tennis courts, etc. There is definitely a ten k course through the park waiting to be realized. Thanks for planning the event!”

8.4 A well organized event at a great location Jason Dunn · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
5.7 How did you treat your last runners/walkers Lonnie Croal · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“I always judge a run organization by how the last of the runners were handled throughout the event. I was one this time as a result of an earlier injury that prevented me from running. I have a renewed empathic sense of these participants again. Some volunteers left their posts, the route was not well marked as a result of no one there, marshaling into the finish line was absolutely zero, my size tshirt was unavailable because (the excuse was) people took what they wanted, the ceremony started before the end of the conclusion of the event and there were several more behind me who wouldn't have got any service. I wasn't aware of what it was like to be at the back of the pack before because I have not been in a similar injured predicament. I will be paying attention to how these "just as deserving" runners are provided the same amount of courtesy as their elite and middle of the pack runners. Remember folks...those who are at the back have paid for your services too...they are also back there for a very good reason. I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed the great communication updates and the volunteers who stuck around were fabulous...thank you. I will be paying attention next year. Thank you.”

10.0 We'll organized event Aamina Mather · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“What an awesome morning. We'll done to Doha college. Well organized, amazing service, excellent breakfast. Thank You. ”

7.0 A great gathering! · Participation 2 times I would take part again Maybe

“Thanks a lot for organizing this event! ”

9.7 A great race, well organized Neville Gibbs-Jones · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Unable to get official timings - if available not clear how to get it The hard work from the organizers paid off as it is definitely up to the high standard one would expect. ”

9.2 Good job · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Good job!!!!”

8.2 Very well organised event Katy Monvid · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Very well organised. Only suggestion for improvement would be to allow runners to use the park running track - much softer and easier on the legs and joints. Seems a shame to have a specially made track and have runners running on cobbles.”

9.4 Very good event- brilliant volunteers too!! Hollie Jenkins · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“Great race today- the volunteers were incredibly supportive, enthusiastic and motivational. Very well organised and run, only improvement is having a station that would allow finished runners to check their official times after they have finished.”

9.7 Had great experience Nadia Gibson · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Hh ”

7.6 Good! Gwilherm Hermeline · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Start with different race time objectives would make the run more fluent at the beginning.”

9.6 Well organised event · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

9.2 Great event, just a little pricey for a 10km race! Shaun Zuccolotto · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Drop the price to Dhs150 (it's a bit much for a 5km/10km event), start the race 30 minutes earlier at 06h30 (it was too hot at the end), have a better PA system so that all can hear the prize giving ceremony, and provide a race time clock. Otherwise a top class event - well done!!!!”
