I would take part again
9.3 Great event, but not for me long term Steve King · Participation 1 time I would take part again No

“It was a great event, well run and proved very helpful for my preparation for the MDS. I have great respect for the runners that do this kind of thing regularly, but it is not something I enjoy, just something I wanted to challenge myself with, hence saying I would not do the event again; I wont be Ultra Running again at all after the MDS!! Thanks to everyone involved, a wonderful bunch of people.”

10.0 Great Event Stuart Brock · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Really well organized. Loved the event. The route was well marked, the scenery was spectacular. The volunteers at the checkpoints and the organizers made a tough experience enjoyable. Overall a fantastic atmosphere, no complaints. I'll do it again. ”

9.4 Excellently organised and supported Caroline Brooks · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“A tough but very enjoyable course and event overall. Excellently organised and supported throughout. ”

9.5 Excellent event - would recommend to others John Evans · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“I thought the event was very well organised and am very pleased I took part in it. The organisers were very helpful and accommodated my wife's arrival at the finish. As an overseas entrant without any local knowledge i thought the event info could have come out a bit earlier - for example i had left from home before i saw the final edition of the race info which had a couple of changes from the previous version e.g. bring mobile phone and mosquito repellent. Overall excellent event!”

“Yes, our apologies for that John, the phone inclusion was actually on the original file but for some reason it was not on the one you got on the information. Glad you enjoyed the event.”

9.5 Excellent Steven Pontifex · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
9.6 Extreme and beautiful Brendan Moloney · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“This is a very hard event and definitely reaches the standard of ultra marathon stage racing. The routes are beautiful, covering desert dunes, wadis, mountains, villages and farm lands. The markings are very well done out. The support is amazing. The over all buzz is great. It was perfect training ground for me doing the MDS and Im glad others joined to do the same. You will push your limits mentally but it is well rewarded after :-) ”

9.6 Excellent event Jeremy Palmer · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Course was amazing. The diversity of the terrain was outstanding. The race directors are extremely competent and well organized. Timing results were perfect. The volunteers and support staff were top notch. Well thought-out event. Highly positive atmosphere all around. Very happy about this. Improve?: Event pack collection is not convenient for me personally. Day 3 course signage could have been better. But my only real complaint is the undisclosed extra Ks on the last leg of the last day. ”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 14.01.2015
“What signage were you missing Jeremy? BTW: The extra was 800m in total to end in the beautiful sand/mountain rather than the littered village. I hope you appreciate that we want to make the finish as memorable as possible for you - it was certainly not kilometres.”

10.0 Challenging but possible Lou Harris · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“A well organised, friendly event perfect for regular ultra runners and newbies. The terrain is varied and challenging. For me the heat is the hardest hurdle. Everyone very supportive and encouraging and because it is currently only a small event it is very social and friendly....you really feel that everyone is rooting for you and you can learn lots of valuables tips about training, kit, nutrition etc etc around the camp Fire at night. Some stunning scenery seldom seen by visitors to the UAE”

9.3 Fantastic race and organization! Pasha Bakhtiar · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

Comment from the Event Organizer - 12.01.2015
“Hi Pasha, Just interested to know what further pre race information or communication you would have liked to have received? What more did you want in your race pack? I do believe we offer over and above compared to many other races when you look at the race pack giveaways. Please let us know how we can improve that for you.”

10.0 Great event - no complaints Lesley Jones · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“A real variety of routes - challenging but doable. Excellent organisation - whilst retaining a personal feel. Loved it.”

10.0 Blisters... Peter Walter · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“Very well organized and very good support along the way, challenging environments and beautiful scenery!”

10.0 Another outstanding UU event Clemens Kastner · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“All around brilliant event, from prerace information all the way to very stylish and unique medals. the organization of the three days was flawless, the number of 'support people behind the scenes' worked perfectly - we runners only had to run. the course was challenging yet doable, amazing scenery of UAE. Urban Ultra is setting new standards for their events while keeping a 'family feeling' to a very professionally organized event”
