“Good event - Good participants with good spirit.”
“Great location, well organised - Always a challenging run with the exposed site and little hill, thankfully the sun was covered by cloud for most of the run.
The giveaways and medal are average, but then again the cost for the run is low too, so I see that as overall good value.
The photographs could be better quality though but that is only a minor complaint.”
“Well organised event - My first time at the Sevens, plenty of room, good parking, facilities ideal and near, course OK, little gradient to keep us honest too and the breeze, temps starting to increase so a little more difficult as seen in mine and several others I had spoken with slower race times.. overall very enjoyable. Except the long wait for the trophy presentations... a lot of people didn't stay to collect prizes... I like the names on race bib, makes the event seem more friendly.”
“Good value for money, enjoyable event - First time I've done this and I'll definitely be back. A no frills, straightforward 10k that suits all abilities. Great facilities before and after the race, and i really enjoyed the 2 loop course. Very well organised and managed on the day. Well done DDRR team.”
“Great event catering for all runners. - The race was well organised from start to finish. It was great to see a full spectrum of runners and especially great to see everyone giving it their best from start to finish. It was a shame more people didn't stay for the prize giving as there are a good number of trophies given out for all age groups. Whilst it is a race, it has a fun element to it with the more serious runners being generally polite to the less experienced runners amongst us.”
“Very well organised - This is the third time I've done this event and as usual, it's well organised. It's an event run by runners for runners, so they set you off in time and there's lots of trophies to be won! We all know how much runners like trophy potential!
Good local event. I'll be back in April :)”
“Excellent Event - I think it is a well run event. It offers something for everyone. Different runners aim for various things and Desert Run seems to cater for them all. I like it. ”
“Interesting run, but many areas to improve - Many areas to improve. Decent course. ”
“Feedback - Please take photos during the course of the run and not just at the start/finish line..this event lacks promotion...”
“My favourite Dubai run - The trophy awards are a fantastic idea for age categories, instead of the tshirts. The whole organisation from start to finish is excellent, showers readily available, along with costa on hand also. What more can anyone want. keep up the good work.”
“Friendly, well organised and enjoyable event. - Thanks Dean and everyone involved. See you next time. ”
“Does what it says on the tin - Good solid race, good course, well worth a dabble. ”
“Great little event - Nice little race, plenty of water stations which is needed on a route with no shade & great trophies for the winners”
“Very well organised and a nice course... - A fun and nice run, good course, very well organised, and most of all very friendly organisers.”
