“Thank you team Urban Ultra, and all the volunteers, for helping to organise yet another fabulous event in a really challenging environment considering the terrain, location and the climate that day. We really enjoyed it. Looking forward to many more such events. Couldn't stay back to enjoy post race as we forgot to take our flash of coffee, and really needed it after the run in the cold weather (cold for some of us) :) ”

10.0 Amazing overall! Josef Figa · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

9.1 Awesome Tanya Ions · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
8.4 Great race in a wonderful environment Emilio Kulot · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“Race pack should be possible at the start itself”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 31.01.2016
“Hi Emilio, Due to logistical reasons, mostly participants arriving later than the requested time of arrival it makes it impossible for us to give race packs at race check-in. Our apologies, but we have tried int he past and it just does not work.”

7.0 Good event · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“Quite few participants as it maybe was close to Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon. No event T-shirt giveaway even though it is mentioned on Premieronline. Anyhow I enjoyed the run! ”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 31.01.2016
“Good morning, all runners receive a t-shirt. Unfortunately some sizes were out of stock to place inside the race pack, so a note was in the pack to submit at race check-in to collect your t-shirt on race day. Please get in touch with your name so that we can get it to you.”

7.7 Great Environment Lindsay Madden Nadeau · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe
Edited on 30.01.2016

“Signage posts on the road getting to the event could have been much much better- driving out so far alone was not very reassuring. On the registration it mentioned we can pick up your pack in Dubai or Abu Dhabi but really you could only pick up in Dubai. For people living in other Emirates this was not convenient and a solution is needed. Weather was perfect and environment was great- thanks so much.”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 31.01.2016
“Good morning Lindsay, We would like to clarify that the decision to include preference of pack collection was Premier Online. We only requested for participants to state where they reside nnd only international participants can collect packs on race day. This unfortunately led to miscommunication to participants. However we do give 4 days to collect packs which is more than any other race. You can also have someone else collect on your behalf. Signs, GPS coords, map, googlemap were all given.”

7.7 First trail run. Harder than I thought! Faye Black · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
8.0 Great run - perfect time of the year Leon Nel · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

9.1 Fantastic event Andrew Sanderson · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Great nights camp followed by a great run, next time i may push my distance up. As always a superbly organised event by all at Urban Ultra. Keep up the good work.”

5.7 The course was very tough and full of stones. Marwa Naim · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“The pre run communication was very minimal- only the initial email was sent. After that i received notging about the event and race packs and all. Also the way to reach was extremely hard to find!! There was only one tiny sign. Also the course was very tough.. I still enjoyed running the 20 k !!”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 31.01.2016
“I can say that ALL runners were sent an email from us via Premier Online, as well as posted on the Facebook page as well as being on the urbanultra.com website and the Premier Online event page with files for download for well over 4 months along with all details relating to the race in downloadable pdf format. It is unfortunate you missed all of these methods to see the information. We try to give participants a challenge, making it too easy would be no fun!”

8.9 Great. · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes
7.7 Good Serik Dyusenbaev · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Better to instal wooden arrows to show the path”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 31.01.2016
“Please understand that this land is not owned by our company and remains communal for all to use. The cost alone involved in making permanent signs not to mention getting permission and ensuring they are not removed is not something we can do. From experience the pink ribbons and paint is visible for many people and we can remove and leave the area as it was found.”

6.6 A better route mapping will change my rating n exp Jayashree Mehta · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“I started 4 min late. So yes i did miss the group. I was there for a 20 km run. There's this cross section where the onward and return route cross over. I lost my way coz of poor marking somewhere around 7 to 8 km down. When i got back i had joined the return route. Felt so unfortunate. But a lil better route marking, a few more reflectors at regular intervals would have helped in the dark. Coz i was also taking care of the gravel and stone route. Couldn't have looked much ahead.more guidance ne”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 31.01.2016
“I am guessing that you also missed the race briefing? It gave specific information about possible areas to pay special attention. Reflectors were placed at least every 100 meters of less and with a good headtorch, there is no way you can miss them. Night trail runs are events that participants must take some responsibility to look for the route markers knowing that it is a trail and not a marked tarmac road. There were also 4 CP out and 4 CP back over 30km.”

8.6 Really enjoyable morning run. Bart O'Doherty · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
10.0 Challenging but Andy Parkinson · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes
