32 people have rated this event.
“Few pointers for improvement - 1/. More water stations and served cold
2/. More toilet role in the loos
3/. Asics discount on trainers not just apparel”
“Poor experience - Overall a poorly managed event...disgusting route, no music/ fanfare, route not properly marked, no giveaways”
“Good event - I have mentioned even before that, Lucky draw is not at all good. Just reading the number on what basis unknown 601 if not there 602 if not there 603 so on. Why can't put number and take it, in that way i feel is better.
“Awesome - Thank you to all of you guys”
“Good running event - Need advertisement I think, because I notice runners getting less compared from previous run.”
“Poorly organised - Still waiting for final timing after 2 days of event..bad organisation”
“Late results vis enforced registration - Acceptable race but having to wait almost 2 days for results, and then having to register with a less-than-friendly website with inordinate amounts of information does not present this race as competitive or professional. Take a look at RaceME please”
“Still miss JBH !!!!! - As always a BIG THANK YOU to all the volunteers and the event organisers. Much better just running on the 1 lane. The water stations were in strange locations and confused a few people. Great that the medal has changed - no date though??? All in all, nothing in life is perfect but it has improved a lot!!! Still miss the old days and running the race in the grounds of JBH - what a setting !!!!!!!! Thanks ”
“Nice race - The race was nice, started early enough not to be overheated, but unfortunately I found there to be too few water stations As well, the water served was luke warm. It would have been nice to have another station at the last turnaround (close to the finish line) as we were to do the loop 2x anyway (for the 8km race). In a nutshell, the water stations were not strategically place and we could have done with one more....thanks!”
“Overall good but lacks attention to detail - Overall this is a cracking good event but some big niggles. I've done this twice now and both times there has been no toilet paper and no hand towels in the loos. I expect 50%of runners get the adrenalin hit before the event and need to sit on the loo. But no paper and I reported the same on my last rating so have extras put in the night before. Other gripe two water stations on the same side of the road 400m apart and nothing on the back straight so you had to avoid runners coming the other way”
“Was great even dough still a bit hot - Water statios were on the same side and too close from each other
the kilometers signages were very confusing”
“Decent event. - Only fault was people crossing to use the wrong drinks stations making more difficult to grab a drink easily. Not really the fault of the organisers I accept.
Very good event!”
“Nice way to start your Saturday - For the future runs I hope you could speak with Meydan about the restroom facilities. Once again there was no toilet paper or hand towel. The only negative thing about the location. ”
“Well run - A well run series. The best of its kind in Dubai”
“Decent race - Liked being out at the track but race course was uneventful. Not much to look at on that course. ”
“Good event but results need improving - This is a nice friendly race with a good atmosphere however it's let down by the results. There needs to be someone checking the people finishing and not just relying on the chip. The ladies winner of the 12k only ran 8k as did another on the 12k ladies podium. The results were corrected afterwards but there needs to be a better way to catch the people who don't run the distance but then stand on the podium!!”
“Better on one side of road, as no trucks. - As always well organised liked fact race on one side of road. no trucks and could see faces of other runners struggling in the heat too. Suggest put water station in middle of road so can be accessed from both sides next time. Also please double check the results are correct before presentations. Winner of 12 km only ran 8km. people sweat and work hard for these places and opportunity to get on podium. Still a great event, thanks. See you next time.”
“Super race - Love this series, have supported it since the JBH days. No real complaints, although a properly-marked start line would be nice, and maybe faster results? Overall though, I enjoyed it, thanks to Warren and the team for their hard work.
Also - it's nice to have a decent race not on a Friday! Please keep the Saturday slots. ”
“A fairly dull course, but flat - Water stations need to be in the middle so that you are not facing the on-coming by runners”
“Good run, but low value for money - Well organised, but steep price for the near non-existent giveaways..
“Ok Tace - Please move the schedule to 6:30! 7:00 is too late at this date. Water supply needs to be relooked.”
“Nice event - Please request workers to switch off their diesel truck along the course during the race!”
