“I'm not one who's ever done a race like this - I like the longer runs that are just runs. But it was a good time!”

“I thoroughly enjoyed the event. I thought the obstacles were lots of fun and well thought out. The route was easy to follow and well marshalled. I will definitely be taking part again!”
“Marshaling could be better and signs of some obstacles were missing”
“I did like the course the way how they improve it and make it as a single course for all distance but i didn't like that they sell the pictures with money !!!! They could include the price in the event fees but not sell them and even you sell them they don't send you all the pictures!!?!? Plus there are few photographers on the course lots of my friends complaint about not being took in any pictures...
I know people just participate just to be token in some poctures
“I pay for all photo but I am still waiting and no one contact me from Wadi Adventure !!”
“Please add more water stations. ”
“Love this event! Very organized. Obstacles were challenging yet possible. Food after was delicious!! Can't wait for the next one! :)”
“I really enjoyed the race, but i gotta say the shirt is really ugly! Ill tuck in my closet, but will never use it!
Coming back again next time for sure! ”
“Arranging a meeting point and a bus to carry all(willing) participants from Dubai and then back.”
“The marshalls weren't aware of which route the 5K's participants need to take and guided a few of us in the wrong direction which was a bit of a waste of time. But nothing major just for future events ensure everyone is well informed of the different categories .
Also where and do I find photos from all the photgraphers as I only see Ami's pics on FB. Thanks
“It's Tuesday, 3 days after the event, but still no on-line results!”
“The race t-shirts are hideous, since it's not sponsored by a sport brand but at least try to design and choose a good quality shirt.
The official race photos are not free!!! That's ridiculous to a well known event like this.
“I only saw one map of the course all day (after the race). I understand they wish to keep obstacles as a surprise but a basic map of the course with obstacle locations would have been good to see prior to the race.”
“As a race its been the best I've attended so far. Very well organised and water stations were every so often. I would like to point out two things: We did the 15k race and received 10K onces instead we emailed them regarding this issue but no reply as of yet. In the last 5k, the marshals were packing things up and were persuading us to get into the car so they can drive us closer to the finish line so they can just leave early. Other than that Everything was great !”

“The race in general was good, but quality of food should be better, also system for lockers was very badly organized, and should be included in ticket price.”
“Brilliant setup and an awesome mixture of obstacles with a lovely backdrop and wonderful atmosphere...”
“A free locker service was not provided although during the registration i remember reading that locker is included. Also the starting line was not accompanied by existing event or speakers to increase the level of excitement.”
“I would like to suggest more regular water stations, especially with the increasing temperatures for the rest of the year. Also music stations along the route :)
Locker availability - should be included in price. No mention of rental in the original booking.
Pictures were taken but not available for my departure time, waited until afternoon but still not available. I paid, but a different set of pictures was sent by mistake. Till now no reply.”

“THe organizer did two horrible things in my opinion. 1- you have to rent the lockers which was fine without giving you the key!! Only the security guy can open and close the locker for you. 2- you have to buy your photos!!! Who do this? No one sell digital photo anymore!! It was a cheap move from them. You should first wait first for them to download all the pictures and incase you did not see yours, pay the money and hope that they will email your pictures!!! ”
“Main downside is locker organisation - everything else was great and the course was absolutely outstanding with a great mix of challenging terrain & obstacles”
“Took part in the Spartan and was not that impressed, it was not better than W.A.R and was double the price. This detail i found no one is talking about and for me is the biggest point.
Guys this was HALF the price of a spartan race and had the same perks, better locker rooms, actual lockers, proper bathrooms and was way more fun with all the water activities.
yes it can be made even better but for the price and with proper food available after the race, i can only rate this as really good.
“Love the water obstacles”
“You make lockers available which is great, but you didn't provide any individual keys or codes, participatnts ahve to ask security personnel to open and close them, this is a busy event, security is not always available and ready to assist, and locker users may want to use (open & close) the locker on numerous occasions, it was a messy affair and i personally find it outrageous that you charge for this service - not good at all”
“It is well run. It is fun. Good course. Good organization. I like that they change things up but still keep the favorites in there. The food is always good afterward. Good quality shirts. I will continue to do the race.”
“Poor compared to Spartan. "Obstacles" were just long and tedious, dragging a tire 800 m, sandbag for forever. Longer is not better. Finally hit good obstacles with the "wadi" parts. The water, the rafts! Incorporating the zipline, etc would have been fun. The run into the foothills by the dam was very nice. Then the last 2 K (for the 10K) was good and challenging.
Thanks for having. ”
“I will be at the next W-A-R”
“There was no Professional Camera men every where like other races attended before. Almost one at the start and one at the end. Also , picture where been sold as well not free like Spartan, tough mudder and ZSC run !!”
“The system for lockers was very badly organized.
Haven`t seen "Wadi Warrior" advertised except for very few places. Wadi Adventure instead was all around, only.
Music at some points during the race was very motivating!
The event crew were great. ”
“Organization of the event is poor since:
-Check-in and bag drop in is not fulfilling the number of participants.
-No race pack.
-Start up and finish line organization is poor.
“Great event!! Will definitely come back for the next one!! ”
“Nicely organized and tip top location. Not the toughest OCR, but a good nice mix of terrain challenges. Liked the water the most.”
“I suggest to use small bottles of water on the race station as the big bottle is wast of water and most or the participants didn't drink it full.”
“Judges ignore the race (stations )”
“1- Never Ever ask the partisipant about any extra mony like whathwhat happen about thel ocker as it's not accatable and not professional .
2- No towel provided !!!”
“This is wonderful race, this year on the 15K you extended into the mountains and this is wonderful but you added 5k of boring (no obstacles flat at the end). More mountains... yes i understand the last 5K would require more marshalls, but at start they were too many.”
“Thanks for a fun race, as always. Room for improvement: locker situation was chaotic (not enough actual lockers, so we paid for our bags to be checked together in a room that didn't seem secure), and some of the volunteers did not provide correct directions. No timing results - almost 12 hours after the race, I still have not received an SMS with my time, nor is it posted on the timing website. The positives: it's a beautiful setting and a fun way to spend a morning, and with great atmosphere”

“Nice event ”
“More frequent and in cups ..saves alot of water instead of bottles half full in the floor ..if is cup not much water and plastic is wasted when u can use paper cups”
“Provide water on the mountain part. This was pretty taff there.”
“I expected a lot more challenging obstacles. The event was great overall. Looking forward to the next W.A.R.”
“The route wasn't organized well and the organizers at the course were not well focused to the directions and chatting with each other , for that reason my over all place suppose to be the 2nd but from the poor information direction I bought the 4th.
In addition to the medals , quality is poor compared to the last race .
Thanks to everyone and you should learn from mistakes and as we all know humans have errors , best for luck ”
“Ready for the next race”
