“A little confusion on the marshalling for the 5km race.
At the T-Junction 2.75km out we were sent around the ambulance and therefore returned on the opposite side up the road. This resulted in us having to cut through an opening in the bushes to get onto the correct side of the road at 9.8km in order to finish the race. Ended up running 5.08km.”
“It was a great event , my first experience though . Well organized . The results tracking of pace can be better . Missed out on some info with my pace results . Otherwise a great experience . ”
“Event communication should be better. It is better to start the event early at least by 6.30am. Those who run 10 mile was facing big heat and sun around 8.00 am onwards.
“The run was very well organized, highly recommended ”
“Good event - the 10 mile distance is good - challenging and good 1/2 marathon prep.
Only negative is could have started earlier (6 am) as it was getting pretty hot in the alst few kms.”
“No toilets / porta loos found during race. Only one toilet in club house at start with long waiting queues.”
“I really like this event , it gets better every times. I have been doing it since the beginnings when it used to run on the beach front .. and it gets better and more professional every time - Well done Warren.
“Not a convenient supply of water at race, water in such packages is difficult to open with wet hands, water in glasses is better. The marshals did not work well at the last spread, I saw how one of the participants run on a repeat - no one stopped him”
“For an early-season race of 16km, a 7am start was too late. Incredibly humid. Mist cleared after an hour and it was even more painfully hot/humid for the last 6km. V unpleasant. A 6/6.30 kick off (at least for the 16k race) is the way to go (the Dubai Desert Road Run manages this even tho it is further out of town and only 10k max). Start was about 5 mins late - doesn't sound a lot but honestly, start times should be set in stone and to the second. Medal was generic. A good event, regardless.”
“I have run this course when it was laps of 4km and didn’t enjoy it as must as this new course. Single lap is much more enjoyable. Good marshaling and water stations at good points. Maybe one more at the 5km turnabout would have been good as particularly humid today.”
“Water stations were a disaster for 16K, were not ready and no water available coming back as idiots were facing with backs to runners and were in the way to grap water yourself. suggest water stations on both sides of the road rather than in the middle”
“Support leading up to the event was great, the pre-face briefing was ok, the event was GREAT however I was expecting more of the post race refreshments. There were no signs to water/juice at the finish line and collecting tee-shirt first then voucher for a drink on such a hot humid day slightly brought down my overall view. But I will be going again”
“Very Gud enjoyable Run.. will participate regularly..”
“I thought the signage was a bit sloppy - the distance markers etc.”
“Great event!Although races can start earlier than 7am”
“Horribly humid conditions, but you can’t control the weather... nicely organized race, good track”
“Late start as well as a sudden start - no prior warning given. Consider an earlier start as it was too hot! Indistinct announcements. Women's M race t-shirt is HUUUGE! Route was tedious and markings were not accurate according to most watches. Very average event!”
“T shirts were oversized. I haven’t got one that fits me..
Sometimes at the water stations the waters weren’t open.. which dificults the life of the runners when they pick it.
The category prizes should be better. ”
“7 am was a late start for 16k
T-shirt’s were oversized. I asked for medium women’s and it’s way too huge for even for men’s . I should have checked
Speakers were inadequate.. could not hear the pre run announcements
Coffee and muffin and oversized T-shirt for 175 aed.. no thanx
“Easy to collect number at the start of the race. Impressive medal. Great atmosphere. So many staff and spectators encouraging the runners makes it a really enjoyable run.”
