“This was an extremely well organised event. Being off-road, safety is paramount and I felt extremely safe. My only problem was the race pack collection (hence poor rating on that) but that wasn't the organisers' fault, and they dealt with it excellently on the day. Signage was almost perfect, though there were just a handful of occasions I had to visually search hard for the route. Fruit at the aid stations was a very nice addition. And the "goody bag" was fantastic! Thank you for the event!”
“Bikes were in poor conditions”
I really enjoyed this event. Ive competed in other Urban Ultra events and I like the vibe / ethos that is behind them. It was a really good course I enjoyed. The food and organisation, showers, buses back to the start etc was really good.
The rental bikes were awful, had never been serviced or seen oil. Mine was a size smaller as they had none left in my size. they were not fit for purpose. also please leave the timing system set up at the finish line until all atheletes have finished. ”
“Very good. Had a lot of fun. Thank you”
“Rant - Why did we have to wait so long :), and why do we have to wait so long again for the next one :)
Well done on a very good and tough race. Looking forward to more of these events in the UAE.
Perhaps we can have a small MTB stage race next Urban Ultra team? ”
“Fantastic event, well organised and as tough as it should be... This one is just going to grow bigger and bigger and I will be back for more pain each year...
ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!!”
“Thanks for organising this amazing event. It was my first triathlon, and I enjoyed every second of it.”
“Could do with more water points especially at the transition areas.”

“Thanks for this great event. Honestly I found it harder than a half IM but well it's just different and it's a good way to work on your mind during the run : for sure this "hell hill" deserves its name. One point to improve the pink dot on the stone doesn't work for a "colorblind" man like me ; yellow is better... Hope to see some pictures. First time I'm riding inside a camel herd ; this doesn't happen on Al Qudra !!!! ”

“Well worth getting up at 3.30am to drive from Dubai to participate. Agree with similar comments re markings on the bike route. The run and climb at the end killed me but loved the challenge. Overall a really great event that clearly has massive potential going forward. Will be happy to say i was there for the first one. Look forward to the next one.”
“I did the Olympic distance and suffered , but the very nice view during the run made it worthwhile to climb the tough hill for the second time. Many thanks to the organizers and volunteers to set up such a race and all the logistic challenges: T1 and T2 at different locations, drinkstation near top of the run-lap. Bravo !”
“I expected a simple course but was pleasantly surprised by a challenging and varied course, as it should be. I hope the police raise their presence at T1 roundabout. Marshaling needs work, bike marking wasn't bad but you had to keep your eyes open. Single track needs to evolve to avoid dual direction bottle necks. Thanks Paul and co for the use of the Absolute Adventure centre and thanks to Louise for a great debut... This event has huge potential. ”
“Very well organised event with a superb course.
Toilets at the race start and ice/sponges at the aid stations would have made it the perfect event.”
“LOOKING FORWARD FOR THE NEXT!”
“Thought I had finished competing in these events but never had so much fun ( and pain ) on a short course event . Great location at Kalba Camp . Great bike course and the run course super rewarding . A fantastic event not just for course and organisation but a really great group of fellow competitors . Bring on the next one ! Retirement over . Thank you Louise and Pascal . ”
“Routing could have been better. Some people went the wrong direction. Stone indication should be with Flags. For the rest Awesome Event !”
“Fantastic event, will definitely do the next one, and I'll bring people with me :)! Well done!
Small suggestion: Please include GPS coordinates on the factsheet, easier to find the location if not familiar with the area!”
“Really well organized event and though challenging was a lot of fun. Thanks!”
“An excellent and very tough new challenge. Credit to Urban Ultra for devising this and the more so for pulling it off so successfully. Such a complex event to organise, but it was done seamlessly. A few more markers on the bike route would go down well but otherwise this was a terrific event. Some good participation at the end from the sponsors as well.”
“Marshalling and course marking particularly on the bike course needs to be significantly improved. ”
