Comment from the Event Organizer - 23.12.2013
“As the event grows in popularity this is something we will look at adding in the future. It is an additional cost/expense which can be justified when we start to get fields in the 250+ area. Thx for the input and comment.”

10.0 Very good and well organised event. Ron Christian Tablac · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“As per usual, an event to remember. Well organised and super fun for the kids. If I had anything negative to say, it would be that the distance for some of the really young kids (that are below 6 yrs old) was a bit too far. And, the distance for 8 to 10 yrs old is not far enough. Having said that, I understand the restriction on volunteer marshals would probably mean it wasn't possible to offer different distances for different age group. Thank you very much for organising such a wonderful event.”

“I think you are right with regards to the young kids distances.”

10.0 Excellent event Kevin Cook · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Totally enjoyable, safe, well marshaled, easy to understand event. All care was taken to everyone appraised of any changes however minor and it all fostered an excellent feeling of communal sense of fun, competitiveness and enjoyment. It made a cyclist who can't run want to run!”

9.7 A good winter challenge Sharon Ditchburn · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Was a great challenge with the wind, and I'm sure a quick course without it as well! As the first timer for this, was enough entertainment value for me, plus the attention you had to pay on the bike made it feel like it was over quickly - while I'm sure it would be lovely to run a sweep over the road, there was enough room to avoid the sand and gravelly bits but I'll think I'll take a spare with me just in case next time. :-) Personally I prefer the car-free course even if there's less to look at, once you're on the bars it doesn't make much difference. I think I had a good giggle at the music - everything from rock to country! But good job with the Eco-loos. :-D ”

9.7 Another Great Event Luke Smith · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes

“Another great event with the organisers successfully running three races in parallel - the longer and shorter adult courses and the kids race. A late change of venue was handled and communicated flawlessly and the feedback from the previous running of the event at this venue had been taken into account and additional toilet facilities were provided (all we need next time is the coffee kiosk!). This time the whole family took part (2 adults and 2 kids) and loved every minute. Looking forward to Round 4!”

10.0 Amazing, been blown away !! Bert Buyse · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes
8.5 A great event, Andy knows his stuff. Bram Connolly · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“The Camel race track is a nice venue for a race or two, but it would be great to have some more thought go into the locations. The DIFC, golf courses, the Marina, beach road, Meydan race course, Global Village, the list goes on. Also, the music being played at the start is a bit old school and didn't do much for the crowd.Other than that, Andy is a great host and the experience was great.”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 20.12.2013
“Oops. Sack the DJ. You found out my love of The Eagles and Fleetwood Mac. Ha Ha. Offers for unpaid DJ at next event welcome. Different venues for next season are definitely on the cards BUT for first year I have emphasized safe courses whilst I learn to deal with Dubai authorities and take it up a notch or two next year. GV is a venue I tried to get this year without success.”

8.8 Great event... well done Andy Paula Pedler · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“An extremely well organised event. Despite some last minute hurdles for the organisers, everything was spot on. Well done to everyone involved and particular thanks to all the marshals.”
