“Great event other than the start was a bit of a surprise in that most were standing around when the horn went off. Overall very good and would do it again. ”
“The only problem I experience is locating the entrance to the location. The medal looks pretty with event date. The shirt looks good and good quality. Nice breakfast. Good marshals and plenty of water at the finish line. Good restroom and parking facility.”
“A fantastic event and very well organised by Graham and the Dubai Road Runners. The breakfast afterwards is always a real treat. Already looking forward to next year!”
“Hatsofff to the Organisers.Very well organised. Its one of the best track I have ever seen. ”
“Started running only 2 months ago, 3rd run of the season. was a little difficult on the gradients, but overall great event”
“Breakfast is a nice touch, and very welcome after the race. The Medal is poor in comparison to other similar events.”

“- It felt to me like there was more downhill than up.
- Very nice good quality tee shirt.
- Thank you for the breakfast, fresh juices helped in recovery.
- Hope if everything is well to participate in 2016.
- Had a great time.
“At first we have a hard time locating the entrance in front of the autodrome.”
“I hope in the future more events and make nice medal.”
“The helpers around the course were great, them cheering me on really made a difference! ”
“The Race on the Autodrome track is really nice ! Marshalls are encouraging, and there are kilometer signs. I'm coming back next year for sure !”
“A very well run event. Good communication before the day. Climbs on the track made it challenging. Water stations at perfect places. The breakfast afterwards was awesome.”
“Great Event, need more focus on organization, route signage and promotions”
“Thanks for Road Runners for organizing this event.
It is one of the favorites every year.
Things that could improve as constructive feedback:
- No timing mat in the start
- More support stations
Overall great experience, good fun, good breakfast.
Thanks to all the volunteers!! See you in the next race!”
“Great event and looks like the Zandfoort City Run in The Netherlands. Easy to park and good sympathetic approach of all volunteers!”
“I am not sure what is the rule about runners with baby strollers? One woman hit the back of my ankle with her stroller whilst running in the inner lane of the track! I was not hurt so badly but it could have well been a serious hit considering the downhill run.”
“Brilliantly organised event, I loved the earlier start time of 06:30 and how the race started promptly. There was a great atmosphere and marshals were enthusiastic. As always, an amazing breakfast afterwards. It's great to run a hilly race; the course was well signposted. Thanks everyone at DRR!”
“Completed the race with my new PB. Awesome running experience I had in Dubai. Thanks to organizer for an excellent event.
Note: Please improve the quality of the finishing medal”
“It was my first Autodrome 10K and I relly loved it!
I really enjoyed running on the race track.
It was a very pleasant day with the family.
We'll be there next year...
“I am looking forward to the run again next year. I hope to improve my time substantially from this years performance,”
“It was a challenging race. My only comment is that its not that organize. no enough signage.”
“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.”
“Well organised, great family event with the added bonus of a buffet breakfast and running t-shirt.”
“The track was the best part of the race..and overall a superb experience for a first timer like me! perfect to get me started and participate in more such events”
“Love this race, really challenging, interesting course. Well organized as always and the breakfast afterwards was excellent, great value for money overall. ”
“There is acertificates and how i see it ???

“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”
“Thanks to all the organisers and marshals”
“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.”
“Looking forward to running the next DRR 10 K Run.”
“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.”
“Once again Graham and his volunteers pulled all the stops out to give us one of the more interesting short course races of the season. well done to all and thank you”
“Excellent organization and impressive route...”
“Few more direction signs for each and every activity will add more value”
“Great run, overall well organized with some improvements to be made for the start. Breakfast was a real treat!”
“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....”

“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. ”
“I liked the overall arrangements. Will look forward to participate again!!! ”
“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!”
“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!”
“Nice course and different to get some hills in. Well run and nice early start! ”
“It was an awesome experience. I will definitely join again next year.
We also enjoyed the buffet breakfast :-)”
“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! ”
“Thank you to all involved. ”
“No One is Perfect , but The team really work hard to be at their Best.
Thank You Every1.”
“Fun race, good atmosphere, nice course.”
“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!”
“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. ”
“Thanks a lot to every one who made this a great success!”
“Good race for runners. A bit hard to work out what's going at the start. Looking forward to having a better go at the hills next time. ”
“Great organisation, great course. Massive thanks to the organisers, marshals and all involved in the event!”
“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! ”
“It was very challenging to have the uphill part at the 5th and 10th kms of the race. But a great even anyway.”
