“Thank you for the organization and the great race”
“Volunteers and marshals were hugely supportive. Their encouragement certainly made the difference on what, for various reasons, is a challenging run.”
“Course near end only one cone -lots of people taking different routes. kids race start early, kids may have gone for quick pee! kids presentation was 45 mins early - many parents still running and the kids were not near the podiums (waiting at the race end). Kids did not get a medal for winners or trophy - how sad is that? yet gave participation medals to adults for one lap? instead rather crappy Prizes given cost and venue does not exist yet!?2nd place lower value then 3rd.podium labeled wrong.”
“Another amazing event by Gulf Multisport - absolutely loved it! Interesting route with ups and downs, grass and sand... Pretty tough but it definitely challenges you and makes crossing the finish line even more valuable. As always nice medals though it would be really great to have different medals for different distances - people who ran full kilomarathon ran it for reason but had same medals as those who did 13k and less.
But all in all - the run was amazing and certainly will repeat it!”
“The 3 hours cutoff time for the 26km category maybe not enough for average runners like me :)
But overall, I had fun and love for the support the organizers and marshall gave to all runners.”
“Nice event, big thanks to the volunteers ”
“If you are going to have a podium presentation for age group you should present a trophy to all 3 places not just the winner, seemed pointless going up and receiving nothing...”
“Very humid - 32C, tough conditions for running ”
“Running my first 13.1 K was a good test but also a quite tough experience.
At the finish station there wasn’t enough water.
And what about the pictures?
“Finished the event last and the organisers had already packed up and left, meaning no marshalling during the race, no open water stations, no official timing and no medal. Either close the race officially or wait until all participants finish.”
“Where can we find the race photos?
Also, I didn't take the race pack before the race as I had nowhere to put it. I asked for a T shirt after I finished the race and was told there were none. How come? T Shirts were given to non runners? Not enough T shirts?
Also, no water bottle at the finish, had to go hunt one down, but OK, they were available if you searched ”
“The course was great, there were small challenges and the turns kept things interesting. The volunteers and race organizers were awesome - as usual! You all put on a great event! My only suggestion, as someone else said, a bag drop area would be a nice addition. ”

“The running course was not easy but it was such a good test of endurance and stamina. It was my 1st time to join a 26.2km and the experience was very good.
The awarding ceremony was a bit weird. I won 3rd place in my category but I did not get awarded (the awarding was over when I reached the finish line) so someone else got my 3rd place medal. Hoping to be contacted by the event organizers with this regard soon.”
“Very well organized...mad course...marshal was team were amazing and very energetic.
The only constructive criticism I can offer is to have a bag-drop area for our stuff.
Amazing event. Organizers worked very hard, and I'd be looking forward to next year's edition.”

“Everything was perefect. The only comment I have is please make bigger medals for the people who run longer distance.

“The track, organizers/ Marshals, giveaways was so good, especially the medal its Unique.
issues that can be improved:
- water stations to have cold water (only few of them had).
- photo service to be added
- communication via email after the race to get results and photos taken on the start/end line.”

“Well organized and the encouragement from the aid stations was awesome...the girl at the start of the 9th hole / end of the 8th hole must have shouted herself horse!!!!
Maybe the running village could have been expanded but this didn't detract from a great event”
“Great fun event and special thanks to the marshalls, especially the girl who shouted out to EVERYONE and gave high fives and to the girl who danced her directions. Brilliant!”
