“Fantastic course with a unique twist. - I don't traditional running shoes should be stated as being suitable for the course. ”
“Challenging run! - Yet another very well organized Ultra Urban event. Their friendliness and humanity is what makes their runs stand out. The trail is definitely beautiful yet challenging. A huge thank you to the volunteers at the support stations. Their kind words and cheers motivated me to keep going. I hope they keep coming up with more such kind of events.”
“Great Course, poor support - Cahllenging and dangerous course will little support from Urban Utra. Some people who had injuries waited for over an hour to receive assistance. Distances between support stations were too long. Ambulance should have been on standby. Chip timing would have been better.”
“Excellent event - Finally able to see where I ran during the energiser night race. Racing againsts the sun was a challenging experience. Would do it again.”
“Fantastic event, can't wait for the next one! - In the results, my 20km race time has been entered in the 10km listing (due to original registration for 10km). Time keeper was informed accordingly at the finish.”
“Amazing morning - 1 of the best events. - What a great event, really enjoyed it and looking forward to the next one. A huge thank you to the organisers and all the support staff. Excellent throughout.”

“Awesome - Well organised, nice race pack and shirt. Loved the course, beautiful watching the sun rise during the race. Did the 30k this time, was very tough. ”
“This was an excellent race! - This was an exciting event and excellent race, the track was fantastic, the organization and the event was great, everything on time according to schedule. The organizers were very friendly too.
Being out in no-mans land the only one thing I would propose is to provide a port-a-let of some kind.
Otherwise just fantastic.
I was pleased to have taken part in the race.
“I Enjoy a lot in the event - Its Fun and Really Great”
“Awesome! - Great great experience for us!
more water station nextime.
“Nice Experience for a first timer like me. - This event must be timed and more water stations and giveaways will be appreciated next time.”
“Fantastic experience - Great day. One comment to improve on is directions. From e611 to Shawkah would have been nice to have distance indicators. At 4am I was not sure I was on right road. Close to event I was lucky to follow someone else I would also not have found it easily. On route app 4km the route markings got vague and a lot of runners went right up a Wadi. Suggest on crossings to mark better. All in all a lovely day. thx to the event organizers.”
“Great fun run adventure - I like this run as an extreme adventure”
“Amazing event with great orginization - Amazing Course, Actual Distance, Friendly and Helpfull Marshalls and Event Organizer, Wonderful Medal. Need XL shirts (fat people also run :-))”
“Tough terrain, but the scenery was great! - Very organized race. I like the medal! Its way too different from my other races. Keep it up!”
“Great race, great organization - A big thank you to all the volunteers helping to set the course and take care of the support stations.
The 30 km race was tough but driving from Abu Dhabi from 2 am to 4am to the start was even tougher :-).
Looking forward to another trail run after this first experience.”
“A scenic & fun trail - My first wadi run, enjoyed every bit of it :)
Havnt gotten an email with my timings yet though.
“Fantastic event. Definitely recommend! - Thanks for such a fun event. My kids want to volunteer next year! I was not familiar with the area and enjoyed camping in the wadi. I wish the event had been on a Saturday, so we could have enjoyed the afternoon before the race rather than rushing after work and trying to get to bed early. Also there was unfortunately quite a bit of trash in the wadi near the start. Nothing to do with the event, was just thinking might be nice to organize a wadi clean-up by volunteers who enjoyed the area.”
“UrbanUltra continuing to deliver great events - Keep up the good work, really enjoy these events and they give everyone the opportunity to see a bit more of what the UAE has to offer and it's great to help develop the trail running community. Looking forward to more of the same next season. ”
“Tough offroad run, but fun! - Enjoyed this more than Night Rebel. Could see more on the way back!”
“Will be back for more. - Great race, good organization and top competitors. Great to see so many happy people on the course!”
“A different experience - This is a great way to stay at top of your game. It would be great if you provided us with waterbottles or something.”
