“Medical Assistance fail + obstacle amazing - I loved the 10km was one big loop, which made it the interesting. The obstacle also were cool and challenging.
However, such a race with obstacle and distance and water, Warriors will get cramps and the medical assistance had no deep heat spray or anything to do with muscle cramps, just bandages.”
“Great event , organized - 1- most of the elite are not elite (they start walking at the first 1km ... they register in elite to be in front line).
2- finish line photo guy was not there, and no photos were taken during the race , only few. for my self i got zeroo photos
3- overall event is awesome & i am part of WAR 13
“Obstacles looked very cheap - Staff being strict is really good for the event.. Obstacles itself looked very cheap compared to spartan race and others.
Best suggestion : create an emarati category like sandstorm 27th January 2017 race...
2nd: create specific finisher medals for each distance!!! 5km medal should be different then 10km and 15km.”
“I will do it again - Wish there would be some options of obstacles like some would be ideal for short people like the rope bridge (it is intended only for tall people)”
“Discount - Please give us discount for the repeater.”
“Amazing experience - Particularly enjoyed the obstacles in the water. Extremely well organized. ”
“Best Obstacle Race...EVER - This has been by far the best obstacle race I have ever done. From the checking in point all the way to the finish line the staff was amazing, very informative and extremely supportive. I love the fact that they were plenty of water stations along the way and I was very impressed with how well organized everything was. The only thing perhaps that can improve a little would be the pre event communications on FB and maybe adding a few more photographers along the course would be fantastic. Thanks!”
“Your marketing - Excellent event once again . No aiting at any of the obstacles. Great atmosphere. Just put it out in more media. Many people don't know about it. Great course”
“Fun, friendly and wonderful course - First time participating and absolutely loved it. Everyone was extremely friendly and just out to have a good time. For the hardcore athletes, their race was earlier on so the beginners did not get in their way. Great obstacles which included a couple of refreshing dips into the water.
Suggestions I would make are that there should be more water stands on the course and perhaps spreading the high walls throughout so there are not a number in the row at the end.
Will will definitely do again.”
“The best obstacle race in UAE - This is by far, the best obstacle course race in UAE. Spartan and tough mudder just doesn't compare to the fun of this event. I enjoyed the practical obstacles that didn't involve large fancy equipment. It was simple and fun! I had a great workout.
I also want to acknowledge the GM and it was a pleasure to see him so giving and kind. It made a difference to see him participate.”
“One of the best obstacle races in the region - So much fun, recommended for everyone, whether they want to run for fun or competition ! ”
“Great Event - Excellent events and the course is full of obstcles”
“Good event, it could be better organized - Why no free lockers? Why only the security gard has the key to our lockers? Why do we have to go to so many desks to register and collect our pip?”
“Simply Awesome!! - Without doubt the hardest course yet.....
Brilliant organisation, well marshalled and killer obstacles.
Well done W.A.R team!”
“Great but to expensive - Great but to expensive 75 euro for a race is way too much.”
“Still a firm favourite! - Another fab event from WAR. Big praise to Gina and the team. Only 2 minor issues that the marshalling at one section of the 15km was non existent and we all just followed the guy in front and the fact the 15km was in fact 17.6km was the biggest obstacle. ”
“Great event. - Great event! Obstacles were challenging enough to make you think "why did i join this event?" But can be dialled up a notch to make it more difficult. More lockers please.....”
“Nicely and acting - Fantastic weather ”
“Nice course - Add Net time on chip
Sandbags cause post-race shoulder aching and spasm. Substitute with better quality sandbags.”
“Race was great but unprofessional first aid! - Course was fine, marshalls were very supportive! Timing from registration to starting the race was too long. I was disappointed with the first aid doctor at the end of the race. During an obstacle I hurt my arm&the first aider on the course wrapped my arm&told me to see the doctor at the end.I went to the doctor&nurse but both were very rude&said we cannot do anything for u, 4 other people heard them and were very shocked.I'm glad I wasnt seriously injured, what would have happened then?!”
“Thanks for creating such an event - Thanks ”
“Great Day - A really great event, it is well organised and communication is great. Some people seemed to have confusion with the finish line but I heard it clearly stated a number of times in the briefing and it was also sign posted at the end of the race. The giveaway t shirt is great as were the extra events for kids and the catering. One obstacle at the end - the half pipe with rope could definitely use having someone assist on the top and mattress to land on if you fall. Other than that safety was good.”
“So glad that this event has returned! - Love this event - have been telling all my friends and co-workers and I'm so excited that there's going to be another one in March. Only 2 comments for improvement - 1: there's a long gap between pack pick-up and start time. It would be good to narrow that. I had to arrive by 8:55 and my race didn't start until 10:30 - would be good to have rolling registration. 2: Please post more photos on FB - we can't take our phones on the course, so it would be great to have memories of the event”
