“What an experience! - The 1st 50K was brutally hard, the 1st mountain was excellent, the second mountain I got very frustrated with the lack of trail, or too much scrambling. I really wanted to run, but this section didn't make it possible. The remaining 50K was a welcome relief! Next year, the direction should remain, having the mountains in the end would be very very unpleasant. !! Maybe a 50K race could be incorporated for those not wanting to do the 100K but wished to climb the mountains and see the great views”
“Spectacular ultra run in the UAE - A very well organised event; views in the Hajar mountains were spectacular, but that meant a couple of tough mountain climbs to earn them. Aid station support by the volunteers manning them was excellent. Thorough organisation by race organisers Louise and Pascale, with nothing overlooked from start to finish. Thank you, I will definitely be back next year.”
“Another great event by Urban Ultra! - A huge thanks to Louise, Pascale and everyone else who made this event possible. While running the event, it was evident the organizers spent countless hours developing and marking the course...obviously making it as tough as possible. I look forward to running the Hajar 100 again next year.”
“Amazing inaugural 100k - Would prefer to buy individual photos like Dsrt Stinker. Maybe put video online (free) for promotional.
Mixed feelings about boulder field - awesome YES! But maybe too awesome and a race ender for some.
Logistics for this must have been insane and the RDs did an excellent job. Support stations = perfect. Course stunningly beautiful. Positive energy all around. Competent organization and staff all around. My favorite race to date!
“Amazing organization, stunning scenery but BRUTAL - Perfect in every aspect, huge thanks to Pascal, Louise and all the amazing volunteers who supported us on the way.”
“A stunning 100k with great organisation - A fantastic race with amazing scenery and routes that you could only dream of . This is a tough race with steep climbs but with a 24 hour cut off is one that you could trek. This is a great way to see some stunning parts of the UAE in a race with a great atmosphere and with brilliant support and organisation. Can't recommend it highly enough ! ”
“Pleasure and pain in one - The most scenic and diverse trail run you will find in this region. ”
“Brilliant - Continuing to bring great events to the the UAE, world class trail 100k. Too tempting not to sign up despite lack of training, but throughly enjoyed the first half of the course and more then got my money's worth despite a DNF. Looking forward to more next year and before that the Night Rebel and Riser events.”
“Simply Amazing - I had a great time in this extremely tough event that had every possible challenge in the first 50km, monster climbs, tricky turns up at the village, boulder ravines and mine-shaft descents! Once i got halfway down Jebel Yibir at 47km I waved the white flag and decided to give it another go next year, Thanks to the Urban Ultra team for making something like this possible in the UAE and to the participants that finished, you are all super hero's!!”
