8.9 Great event! Loved the course and the breakfast! Kathryn Lundin · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“The only feedback I have is that it was my first event and first time using a chip. The woman who gave me my bib and chip showed me where she had attached her chip around her ankle, but I thought she was just showing me how she put it on. I had no idea that I wasn't supposed to put it on my wrist because it is too high up to be read. The size of the print on the chip package is too small. My results showed as DNF which was very upsetting, although I did get it corrected later in the day.”

Comment from Premier Online - 17.03.2015
“We understand it's upsetting to not receive a time, it's also disappointing that despite printing (in two languages) the instructions on each chip pack along with pictures, having uniformed timing staff to answer queries and being shown how to wear the chip around an ankle, (as well as there being 500+ other runners to reference), that 'Timing & Results' is still rated poorly. This may show how useful our new feature where you can edit star ratings, can be...after all, you did get a result.”

10.0 Great event Liz McLaughlin · Participation 4 times I would take part again Yes

“Well organised, great family event with the added bonus of a buffet breakfast and running t-shirt.”

6.2 An ok event but more organisation needed at start Emma White · Participation 1 time I would take part again No
Edited on 18.03.2015

“I thought the race was good but think ti was poor to have been tolad after the sign up that there was a cut off time of 40 mins for the first lap”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 18.03.2015
“Thanks for your comments. As you finished 5th female in the 40 - 44 age group in a time of 51:18 the 40 minute cut off for one lap didn't seem to be too much of a problem for you. You marked the pre-event communications at 30% even though it included a comprehensive downloadable event handbook. Event pack collection was on the day, at the venue, with no queues. What more did you want? ”

10.0 It ws Great fun, Very well organized. · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
9.4 Less people, no tripping up Bernice Boshoff · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“The only part that was a little disorganised was the start, there was no warning that they were ready, so everyone is just standing around and next thing the alarm goes off and we were off! Those at the back cannot see what's happening in the front so maybe some sort of countdown would be good.”

9.6 A wonderful surprise! · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“I am a fairly new runner and do not run with a club. I loved the relaxed atmosphere of this race and the course was a joy to run. The most pleasant surprise came post-race, when we collected our race t-shirts and entered a room with a conference style spread of breakfast items and beverages. This was unexpected and so well organised. The race t-shirt was a nice, lightweight saucony t-shirt that I will wear again. Will definitely sign up for this race again.”

5.6 No information before the race and surprise start. Mario Ojeda · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

Comment from the Event Organizer - 18.03.2015
“Participants were e-mailed race instructions prior to the event and also a link to a comprehensive event handbook which was available on the event site on Premier on Line and also the DRR website. The arrangements for collection of the race packs was very clear.”

9.7 Great event, venue and refreshments Nigel Cole · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Mostly praise, only negative would be at start. Please get a megaphone as most of runners not able to hear you calling them to start line as did not start near the complex...other than that an excellent event... well marshalled, drinks stations in good positions. A testing course with hills...Nice medal and the after race refreshments, first class. (thanks Movenpick). A good turnout of runners too and Premier timing results first class as always...and I ran a new PB by nearly 1 minute....”

10.0 An excellent event Rexi Abraham Chacko · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes
Edited on 16.03.2015

“Thank you once again DRR for a very well managed event (though short handed, but managed to pull it off very well), and the energetic support staff, plus perfect weather only added to the joy. A couple of points to consider for next time - the medal can be better, the start line instructions can be made a bit more audible to all if we use the Autodrome mic system or at least a portable loud speaker, as someone else mentioned a timing mat at the start would've been nice. But overall awesome. ”

6.5 Nice arrangements!! Vanitha Gopinath · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“I liked the overall arrangements. Will look forward to participate again!!! ”

10.0 Thanks to the organizer and team. Amedil Whyte · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
8.3 Liked the venue, the race time the most! Jayashree Mehta · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Although I feel the markings on the road on kms covered can be worked upon. I have seen better n more celebrating arrangements at the Finish line. The medal quality can be improved. I liked the enthusiasm n the encouragement from the Marshals.The quality of the t shirt is good too. The after race snack was sumptuous n of very good quality. Overall energy levels were nice. It was a good kick off to a Friday!”

9.2 Enjoyable with a few improvements required Novel Tjahyadi · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“Good and fun run. Perfect weather. Nice breakfast buffet. The start could've been managed better with some clear instructions. A premiertiming mat at the start could've given us more accurate timing. Well done!”

10.0 Great race as always Peter Hidvegi · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes
9.5 Good event, well run. Paul Kelly · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Nice course and different to get some hills in. Well run and nice early start! ”

10.0 Well done! Imelda Likiyan · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“It was an awesome experience. I will definitely join again next year. We also enjoyed the buffet breakfast :-)”

9.7 Very well organised Alison Ramsay · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Great event. Only improvement would be for a race timing mat to be at the start to ensure a more accurate record of individual time. Thanks to the organisers though - well done! ”

Comment from Premier Online - 17.03.2015
“The benefit of such a wide track/starting point negates the need for a start mat as everyone's (start) time would effectively be the same. Not using a start system reduces the cost for the organiser thereby assisting with the reasonable entry fee. We hope this explanation helps understand the reasoning behind the absence of a start mat.”

6.0 Enjoyable Julian Eynon · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

9.7 Excellently organised race Simon Putt · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“This is a really solid event....organised for runners by runners. But it also had a good family and inclusive feel to it. The 6.30am start may have been imposed, but it was great for lovely running conditions. It's an enjoyable and challenging circuit to run. Great breakfast afterwards was much appreciated. Well done Graham and DRR!”

9.2 Great event, thank you Debby Plumpton · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Wonderful event, in the main very well organised, very friendly, a great breakfast and awesome trophies/voucher, thanks to all concerned. Maybe a loud hailer might have helped at the start as I understand some runners weren't aware what was going on. Looking forward to the next one. ”

8.2 It was a great experience · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Thanks a lot to every one who made this a great success!”

8.8 Nice to get a hilly run in Dubai Tom Crampton · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

9.3 Great event for all ages, nice track! Joseph Khater · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes

“Great timing for the event, starts at 6.30am which is still nice and cool in the early morning. Family friendly also kids race available. Medal and T shirt give away awesome! Support stations can be improved with more volunteers. Start organisation could be also individually timed by passing on the timing mat. Great job to all the marshalls and volunteers, keep up the great job DRR! See you next year!”

“Start was a bit messy, not marked out or anyone with a loud speaker, but once we were underway it was a great run. Marshals along the course, standard water breaks, and great premier timing. Really good t-shirt and breakfast at the end! Very good event, just sort the organisation for the start. See you next year! ”
