“Great event; good community feel to it. - Really enjoyed this event, well run and organised without the corporate feel which many of the UAE races now have. The ups are harder than you think and the downs are steeper than you think, so it's a great challenge and one that I will be doing again and aiming to improve! Nice to be in the mountains. It was run by a very friendly group who were very supportive! ”
“It was a unique and totally worthwhile run! - I really enjoyed the unique race and will definitely be doing it again. It was well organized and prepared. Friendly running crew and coordinators. Awesome terrain, route, and amazing view at the top. Definitely going again next year with more friends. Hooked now on this trail running!”
“Great route - Not a big event so we were left floating around at the start and finish without being noticed for sign in or finishing. Great event overall. Fab route. ”
“Excellent event - good organization - Record split times for each loop and give option of finishing after one or two loop if registered for three and have a tiered pricing structure for number of loops.”
“A must while you're in the UAE! - I loved everything about this event. The organizers were great, the course was incredible, and it wasn't too crowded to enjoy. I will definitely do the Big Stinker again!”

“Excellent - Favourite race in the UAE so far!”
“Usual excellence from the Urban Ultra team! - A properly challenging event, no photos this year?”
“Tough route - for a road runner - Thoroughly enjoyed the event. Although a small field, this benefited the race, since the route was not congested at all.”
“Awesome - As usual, any event organized by the ladies of the Urban Ultra is just great. The friendlines and warmth of the team obliterates any feelings of anxiety/fear and turns the pain and fatigue into a victory. The course is demanding but the view is just great. The support stations and staff are very motivating. Luckily, the race pack for residents of other emirates are brought to the starting line (a very thoughtful gesture). I'm looking forward tot heir next event.”
“Tough run with a brilliant atmosphere! - This must be a signature Urban-Ultra event, so close to Dubai yet you really feel in the wilds of Ras Al Khaimah. Beautiful nature and super-friendly people in the local village. Great organisation!
P.S. I rated the event pack collection lower - since it hadn't arrived at Adventure HQ yet when i arrived for pick-up (10am on the first day). No biggie... will phone ahead next time!”
“Fantastic! - A well-organised race, with a clearly marked route and LOTS of elevation. Lots of fun.”
“Great event, as usual from Urban Ultra! - Ummm... at times there were people finishing and not being acknowledged / timed / medal'd... bit of a shame after all that effort of getting up and down the hill.”
“Great support and organisation :) - The race was so much fun but certainly not easy :) but made a whole load easier by the really friendly crew at the start/finish line and support stations :)”
“Perfect event! - I cannot fault this event, everything was great! Very friendly and supportive organisers! A challenging but rewarding trail.
Cannot wait for next year!”
“Gruelling but awesome challenge - Brilliantly organised, as ever, by the Ultra-Urban team. It's an excellent event and fantastic challenge out in the mountain wilderness of RAK. The formula is already a winning one - don't change anything for next year's running!”
“Fun day, big hill. - Wonderful event, great day.”
