“Too expensive - No medal, no shirt, too expensive!”
“Mentally Challenging - Mentally Challenging”
“Great event - Great event and friendly staff. Value for money is ok as this goes to charity but the event bags/packs were terrible. would of been nice to have a medal or even a t-shirt instead of 2 packs of biscuits and a mountain dew. I saw there were sandwiches at the start of the race but when i finished which was approximately 10:15 am there was no food left! I carried my backpackpack longer than was needed, through the tyres up the slope and was told to take off late.
Overall I enjoyed the event”
“A fun challenge for charity - Good that they mixed up the course a little more after previous years. Rather too much crawling for me, but that's my problem. It's for charity, it's a unique Dubai event...keep it up!”
“Good but could be better - Great course for a great cause but quite a few errors. group start times all over the place and staff didn't seem to have a clue what was going on. also there were quite a few bottle necks on the course where you had to stand around waiting for others to finish”
“Medal a must - The race is relatively short compare to others but the price is pretty much the same as other (longer) races. No medal(again) is a complete letdown. The race pack could be eliminated since it had nothing special in it (In the past we at least got a free coffee). We love the race but it is expensive! Thank you for trying to mix it up a little bit, even the course was still pretty similar to last year.”
“Best obstacle race in Dubai - I loved this event start to finish, my only complaint is that there was no souvenir shirt/medal. How am I supposed to tell my grandkids about doing this 40 years from now if i don't have anything to show them?! I would gladly pay 25 more dirham for the event if there was a souvenir shirt/medal (i prefer shirt) in the goody bag at the end. ”
“Fun - The event was fun and will participate next time as well. Medals and t-shirts would remain as a souenir from the race but not this time ;o(”
“Overall awesome event - New and more variety of obstacles should be introduced”
“No swag?! - Super fun race but pretty cheap to not have a medal or even a t-shirt for the very expensive entry fee & such a short race. Not sure why you even bothered to give us a race pack - nothing of value in it whatsoever. ”
“Race was fun but its management needs improvement - I liked the course and to be fair the race management was good. However, as I've been to other races which cost the same price (more or less), the management of the race can be improved. Clearer and more detailed communication on the dress code for an average participant, more strict judges at all the obstacles to prevent cheaters, medals and shirts (more people sign in for races with finishers medals and shirt providers as souvenirs), Free pictures! Nevertheless, thanks for the great fun!”
“ need to have a categorization by age group - Nice Event , need to have a categorization by age group ”
“Having fun to participate with my friends - The judgements were not strict and fear about the judging, many players were cheating and passing the obstacles which they finish before us. I hope next year this thing won't happen again. At the end thanks for everything and hopefully to join them again for next year event. ”
“Excellent - Bravo to each and everyone involve. ”
“The event was very well organized - I was happy with the event overall but would have loved to receive some kind of completion medal such as those given in other races which would remain as a souvenir from the event.
Maybe also having different difficulty levels would make the event more interesting. ”
“Fun event, cheers to the MaF staff - The evet was really fun, im sure i will join again during the next event. Medals are required once finished similar to spartan, desert warrior, etc. ”
“Fun - Need pre event details to be delivered earlier.
Map of the route - what were supposed to do, guidelines, do's dont's, just more information to assist the participant.”
“Cold a tough - A little harder than last year but unique race in UAE and it makes it a must.
improvement on the marshalling giving direction!
Monkey bars still the worst ;o) ”
“Ok!! - An earlier Email communication before the event said Gloves will be available to buy at the event. I did not bring my gloves, the shop had technical issues with billing and they could not sell the gloves until 8:30 AM. Made a big difference to the performance!!
Also, would appreciate if medals or Tshirts are given at least next year. All events in UAE at these costs provide the same.”
“Organizing Issues - Communication about event only happened 1 day before the event. By that time, i had already purchased all the gear that costed me around 800 AED. D category entered last for event. By the time wr finished, event was closed. So, we didn't get any refreshment, sandwiches or even the event giveaways. D category was better to be entered first.”
“Fantastic events - Cool and existing next event l will be ready for first place ”
“Great event - I always enjoy this event, was disappointed this year in the giveaways however other than that a great event”
