“Andy and Team, a perfect 10 well done. And you tell us it will get better next season”
“I booked my kids twice for the same event. Andy contacted me prior to the race informing me about it, and promised a refund! I'm sure it will come on time as well.”
“A really well organised series. Something different and very child friendly which encourages grass roots development”
“The success of this event has to be credited to the incredible enthusiasm of the organizers and their leader. Not many sports event in the region have managed to give the participants such of the great experience throughout the all process from the online registration to the medal handout.
I hope it will continue to grow and bring more and more participants and make happy faces like me.
“Loved the venue and especially to coffee........”
“I have participated on this event since it started three years ago and have witnessed how Andy has developed the quality of this race and made the best local event ever. Very well.organised and very friendly atmosphere. ”
“Again a 1st class event run very well”
“Yep, the chaps at RACE.ME have nailed it. Having been a competitive athlete for 40 years I've seen the whole spectrum of events from shoddy and amateurish through to slick and stylish- but this duathlon (and the whole series) was a cut above the rest. While being fun, enjoyable and relatively relaxed (racing is never relaxed on the start line!) it was carefully planned and extremely well organised by a team who are passionate about the quality of the races they put on. I'll be back for more :-)”
“I like the venue and the ambiance.
“Really enjoyed the event and the new venue. Very safe and nice bike track.
The running could be longer.”
“Lovely first experience and definitely one to repeat in the next season. Great organization and massive effort put in from Andy and the Race ME team and volunteers, absolutely fantastic facilities, and for this race it was really emotional to see Rio from team Angel Wolf cross the finish line on his own. ”
“A very well run event which is a credit to the organizers who clearly have a passion for delivering a quality day out.The race briefing was detailed and the course well marked.
D1 is the perfect venue for this! Please use it again, Safer than Hamdan!
Only gripe is that the event is very much geared towards the overall series which is fine but if you miss the first 3 races then it is almost pointless entering as even the overall winners on the day were not even acknowledged which is a shame.
“My only comment would be can you ask the vendors to make bigger cups of coffee!”

“Really enjoyable event, ideal venue and great organisation.... one gripe, due to a little fatigue and following a fellow runner i missed the u-turn at the finish and carried on running towards the start trying to work out where the finish line was! Could with a Marshall in that position to instruct dim witted adults!”
“A great season final. Looking forward for next season.”
“The ultimate amateur sports series in the UAE! Not a single thing to find even the slightest fault with. Roll on the 2016/17 Series!!”
“I LOVED the children aspect of it..so good for kids to be involved!I also really like the names on the bibs.good way to get to know people,support etc.generous prizes and giveaways. I love the trophies.Thank you Team.”
“Another brilliant event by Andy and the RaceME team. Each race there is something bigger and better than the one before. Thanks so much for those sponges and cold water today. ”
“Great venue, great organisation, amazing kids participation and unbelievable prizes. Thanks Andy, Laura, the RaceME team and all the volunteers for putting on a great series of events. Record numbers which I'm sure you'll smash again next season. Massively inspirational Rio Watson brought a magical and proud climax to the event series. Enjoy your well deserved break, see you next season.”
“I've raced several races in Abu Dhabi including Tri Yas and asics races in Dubai, the marshalling was a disaster. I did not u turn at the correct place whilst running whilst asking no one actually knew. There were no marshalls around the track, so there were women drifting behind their partners and stopped drifting at the one point there was a Marshall which is where the transition was. The briefing was terrible not very clear and asking others they didn't understand either.”
“Once the running track is finally fixed, this will be perfect. So, now we have to get rid of the cheaters. Some guys are really making a science out of drafting! How do we stop it?”
“Better venue than Hamdan Sports complex and organization was good, plenty of marshaling staff. Didn't quite understand the beefing for short race but might be an idea to upload map with sequences marked up including number of laps. Overall good event although price could be lower!”
“Brilliant family event, great venue, super atmosphere. Next year we will all be racing! :0)”
“As always, a fantastic event. Well done to Race.Me for organising such a great race series and to Giant for their generous support. ”
