8.0 Well organized event Peter Joba · Participation: 1 time I would take part again: Yes

“First of all it was a great, well organized event with an amazing view at the skyline of Dubai and the sunrise in the back. I was a little upset because as announced headphones were prohibit, but there were some runners on the course wearing headphones and no one cares about them. Normally I run with music in my ears and in this run I missed it... :-(”

8.0 Loved it. Fiona Andrew · Participation: 1 time I would take part again: Yes

“Was the 10kms really 10 kms? Everyone I know who was wearing a watch reckons it was 9.86. A minor criticism if correct.”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 21.01.2018
“Hello Mike, we were announcing LIVE results all day on the PA. Provosional results were posted around 1030am.......Sorry, the email advising that went out a later than we wanted it to. All results were checked yesterday and posted as FINAL.”

8.6 Well-organised but lacking atmosphere · Participation: 1 time I would take part again: Yes

“Lovely route scenery-wise but hard-going with no music along the course and no supporters except at the start/finish point. ”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 20.01.2018
“Hello.....there was music at two of the three aid stations. Unfortunately because travel is via monorail then spectators are all at the start/finish. Also having people drive on the course is not ideal. Thx AF”

8.4 Good race · Participation: 1 time I would take part again: Yes
9.5 Very well organized. Prachi Vidhani · Participation: 1 time I would take part again: Yes

“It was very well organized as compared to other events I’ve attended. From collection of the race pack to waiting for all the participants to finish and then starting the prize distribution. ”

10.0 It is fun, stressless and very friendly Ana Ailene Carlos · Participation: 1 time I would take part again: Yes

“There might be a wrong record of my reault though. The duration of run. It is mentioned 17 mins but I think I took longer than that. Anyway, the organizers and very friendly. Well done to all.”

7.0 Where is my time?? Rebekah Chaput · Participation: 1 time I would take part again: Maybe

“We were told the day before that headphones weren’t allowed and track was narrow. I think this should’ve been disclosed in the race description when registering. I still have not gotten my time for the race even though I placed In the top 10 for the women according to my Garmin time. No one has returned my emails. Frustrating. The views and weather were beautiful and it was a well organized morning and run. ”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 19.01.2018

9.5 Thank you guys Jasem Al Blooshi · Participation: 1 time I would take part again: Yes

“I wish if there was a big oclock or a timmer at the end so we can see our time as we finsh. Not big issue but we we use to see this kind of things in t.v ”

10.0 Everything went so smoothly! · Participation: 1 time I would take part again: Yes
8.0 Great event, nice route - just do it · Participation: 1 time I would take part again: Yes

“Good that Monorail starts early, but next time please consider to get the Al Ittihad park station to be opened and that we are allowed to get off. The staff was not allowed to let us out, but wanted to make us pay for ticket to got to Gateway and come back. Eventually we needed to argue for 15 mins to let us out of the "open station".”

9.3 Well run in a very nice location. · Participation: 1 time I would take part again: Yes

“Overall a well run event with a fantastic view as the Sun came up. I think the "Village" may suffer as the running numbers grow year on year - it became a little congested as the Fitness First people were doing their warm-up. Minor stuff tho. Well done again.”

3.6 Disappointing Berta Canovas · Participation: 1 time I would take part again: Yes

“I'm an in business trip few days and I thought it would be nice to participate in a race during my stay. Such a bad choice, i would have prefer to keep sleeping: no environment, no music, ridiculous pack race with only the t-shirt and a shampoo... nor talking about the animation. It's already difficult for runners to do laps, but if there is no sportif and supporting athmosphere, it's even worst! By the way it's already noon and I still don't know my timing... no message no mail no nothing.”

9.5 Perfect race for a whole family! · Participation: 1 time I would take part again: Yes

“Great organization, very friendly staff & volunteers & the venue was amazing! Over all I wish I included my whole family & informed my close friends to do it with me! Definitely will do it next time with few friends & probably do a longer distance! ”

8.6 Great Location and Venue · Participation: 1 time I would take part again: Yes

“3 hours have passed and still my time wasn’t announced. Besides that, all great.”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 19.01.2018
“Results are up.....we had live updates during the race and we regularly announced that. Rest up and see you next race.”

7.3 Gd race day pre event changes. · Participation: 1 time I would take part again: Yes

“Start well organised and gd facilities and support stations. Race day was well done. Didn’t get pre event email and date change for pack collection was frustrating as had to change plans and cancel tennis. Also no reason to ban headphones. Was not busy or dangerous on track and closed roads. Lots of people we’re using anyway!”

9.8 Very nice track Peter Hidvegi · Participation: 1 time I would take part again: Yes

“Thank you for the marshals, good job”

7.3 nice run Emile Fakhoury · Participation: 1 time I would take part again: Yes

“Could be better if you allow headphones!”

9.8 Excellent event for all ages and ability Tracy Day · Participation: 1 time I would take part again: Yes

“One small thing.... The warm up stand was dangerously wet for the girls to use this morning. Would be best to cover it. Also warm up area wash squashed and needed more space.”

10.0 Nays · Participation: 1 time I would take part again: Yes

“ كان سباق جميل وتنظيم أجمل ممتاز وسوف اعيد الكره واشترك مره آخرا لقد أحببت كل شيء من التنظيم ومسار السباق اتمنا لكم مزيد من التقدم والعطاء. ”

6.8 Well organised · Participation: 1 time I would take part again: Yes

8.9 Event was very well organized · Participation: 1 time I would take part again: Yes
