“Great experience. The course was nice. The venue was amazing. There was a lot of bananas and apple after the race. The medal looks awesome. However: 1. There is no XS shirts for runners of smaller build 2. No photo at the finish line with the official time. This is a big deal for some participants. 3. Not all stations are manned with volunteers. we had to bend and pick up water from the coolers. 4. The distance was 500m more. 100m or 200m more should be fine but half a kilometer extra is a lot.”

“overall experience is good. but the only thing that i can comment is that some of the AID STATION who run 21km has no volunteer to provide water to the runner which affect the progress and pace. we have to open the bulk of water in the plastic. i am very disappointed, and the 21km run is a bit long as per my watch, its 21.50km to finish line where it was supposed to be 21.10km only.”

“Very poorly organised. Had to stop and rip open packets of water at the side of road at the first 4 water stations. Parking was a nightmare, my friend missed the 10km because she couldn’t get to it. Others ignored the cones and drove right in front our path (1/2 marathon) in a panic to get to the 10km start. V dangerous! Course was almost 22km long.

“Very poor organisation. No electrolytes at the water stations I.e. Pocari as indicated. Not enough helpers at the water points. We ran 21.5km which was 500m too much. My wife could not get to the start point for the 10km run due to the Police blocking off all entrances and the nearest parking thereafter was 4km away. This was done before the 6:30 am cut off time. Many people abandoned the race due to this after having spent so much money coming to Ab Dhabi. Not doing this event again in future.”

We were shown the wrong way to go by security and not helped at all. At 740 we were told there was another 2 km to the start line (we arrived before 6:30 when we were originally turned away by police). We decided we would start the race at the 9km mark, so didn’t officially start the race. We then had a 4 km walk back to our cars as there was no transport”

It doesn’t seem hard to get the distances correct, yet the 10km race was significantly more than 10km. I overheard someone say that the 3km run was too short. The 2nd race in this series in Al Ain had similar issues.. the 10km race there was significantly short. Perhaps some quality control would be useful.”

No signs, no race staff anywhere to help. In the end we just joined the race from the 9K marker at 7.35am!! And ended up running only 9K instead of 10, and ended up disqualified!”

This caused a lot of stress and tension before the race even started. When I eventually parked I had to run to the start of the 10km race, to find that the race had already begun. This was not a fun experience. The race itself was also a lot longer than 10km.”
