“Yet another awesome event. The organization is perfect. Definitely a lovely route. The devotion put into this event by the urban ultra team shows in every detail. They spread a feeling of cameraderie rarely found in other runs. Urban ultra events are not to be missed.”

9.7 Wonderful experience · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“This is my first time to participate in a trail run, wonderful location, organizers, and timing of the race was perfect! Running just before sunrise was a fun experience by it self. Would liked the music to be shut down during the fajr prayer call out of respect to our religion. Provide port a potty? Having a medic onsite was comforting. Medal is of great quality and design. Organizers are friendly and professionals. trail: to be marked more often specially at the forks, maybe use a flag? Thanks”

“Good morning, We did actually turn down the music out of respect at the request of one of the runners who wanted to pray. I apologise if this was not done soon enough and caused offence - it was not our intention. We were very busy with late check ins and unfortunately it was overlooked.rn”

“The Urban Ultra races are not to be missed. Amazing Organizers I love the medals, just the one I got doesn't have the stickers of event & date at the back. I think I missed some info on where to see the event timing and results. Overall: 9/10 Challenging, Adventurous, Fun ”

“Hi Al AIn, Unfortunately there was a box of medals taken to the event that were missing labels. We decided to give them out as a medal is better than no medal - however we will be happy to add the sticker for you. Please get in touch so we can organise that for you. The reason we do this at this time of year is that we have other events that cover the cooler months, this event was designed was designed so that we can run later into the year hence the very early start.”

10.0 Amazing event Mhd Hasan Al Jijakli · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“As usual every things is perfect but I have a request I don't mind at all if there is very loudly music ..., i see the big speakers and I know there is few houses around us but still love very loud noises...., otherwise the event it's more than excellent thx Louies appreciate your hard work ”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 27.04.2015
“Hi Mohd, we do point the speakers towards the road direction though, so actually the sound does not carry so far back to the village. I think you requested we turn down as you wanted to pray, so that was accommodated. We try to ensure it is not too loud, but next time let us know so we can reduce if it is too much for you.”
