35 people have rated this event.
“A great fun event. - Events like this help to motivate me to keep up regular fitness training, aside from them simply being good fun.”
“We can improve somethings - I am very glad of the event but I think we could improve somethings like support stations, the signals to arrive to the parking... Also I won the race of 10k and anyone took me a picture when I crossed the end :( I am sad but I was checking all the picture and nothing.
“First night run and very enjoyable - Well organised and very enjoyable, Post meal was very good, one of the best I experienced in UAE”
“Great event - An excellent event overall the only let down being the speaker system at the start where echos from the concrete walls made it almost impossible to hear any instructions ”
“Run one for sure, great scenic course, but... - Awesome race location, apart from the dark & sketchy start-rubble, pipes & potholes not ideal, made me paranoid at the finish too. If you could please provide more lighting here it'd be hugely appreciated & be so much safer. The goody bag was pretty bare compared to other races-you a Puma pin & that's it. When entering the race you should let people know that there is no bag drop off rather than leave it until 2 days before please...Otherwise it was a great scenic course & super post race vibe!”
“Average - Need marshals to stop cheating”
“The Best Value for Money - -Some goody bags don't have t-shirts inside, but sorted anyway; -Photo download still not available as of time of writing;
-Medal design is ok but not impressive. If I have to compare, 2xu compression run series (race 2) medal is better.
-Some dark areas on the course, you have to slow down and watch your step.
-Everything else, perfect.”
“Nice route, running in the dark - Liked the event a lot, the organising, the marshaling, the after run meal :) refreshments, the medal, everything indeed. Just a few advise though to improve it further. Add some light approx 100 to 300 metres near the start/ finish line. Way too dark, or maybe even advise runners to bring their headtorch if not. Add more signs around the turns, and please bring more T-Shirts of the right size. You already have the info beforehand during the registrations. Both me and my wife missed out on it :( ”
“Very well organized - Nice event, managed in a professional manner.”
“Good Event - Need more photo shooting places with proper lighting to take photos for event promotion”
“Race was great and the event organization was good - Really good event, no complainst except for add more signs from main road as it was a bit diffcult to find the race location.
Suggestion,: add an emarati podium category similar to sandstorm narmoum on feb 10th of 2017, to encourage the uae youths! ”
“Well put together and well organised - Very good. Liked the course, and all was well done in terms of marshalling. The real bonus is the meal and drink afterwards - very much appreciated. And good that there are so many prize categories, reaching out to a wide array of runners. Looking forward to the next one.”
“OK for a first attempt - It was good to see so many people wearing the event shirts, just a pity I couldn't, apparently due to a Puma error.
Course was interesting, with inclines and turns, although the first bend from the start was a bit iffy, over badly filled roadworks.
The event organisers on site were efficient and friendly, and I have already received a call regarding delivery of the missing shirt.
The marshallers, police and drink station staff were well organised and some were supportive, which was nice.”
“Great location and nice crowd - Great location and well organised”
“Great race to kick off the year! - Well-organized and great value for money. The only minor complaint I have is the 200 meters just after the start line (before the finish line) was a little too dark. Especially at the start when there was a lot of people running - you could hardly see what's in front of you so you rely on the person ahead of you not tripping on anything. Otherwise, it's a well-run event!”
“Add to your To Do list - Night runs are awesome!”
“Good run - Excellent post event party”
“Love the course - The best thing about this run was the running course! Loved it.”
“Great experience - It was a great experience.I will %100 participate in the next Race ! Tnx to everyone who made this event a great event.”
“Good course! - Better lighting in the driveway essential”
“Stunning course with awesome Dubai views - Improve the main event area - not many stands, brands etc”
