“I think this race events repeat yearly ”
Thanks for the organisers and volunteers ”
“good good very good good”
“Track was not safe as per COVID situation and government patrol. Distance was not 10 km and at the last circle some of us completed whole round and some enter direct to the finishing line same as 5km but results were prepared for all no one disqualify because of uncomplicated 2nd round”
“The event timing calculations was missedup and the race distance is less than what was announced”
“fabulous, safe, when is the next one!”
“results were not received immediately, and course distance was 4.8km only. there was 2 ways traffic during the race !!!!”
“لا يوجد اي لوحات ارشادية عند خط سير بعد الانتقال بحيث عند الوصول للتقاطع لم اعرف باي اتجاه الذهاب لاكمال خط النهاية ل خمسة كيلو لان هناك خط اخر للعشرة كيلو ”
“Not well organized no clear instruction ”
“Overall it was nice Race with beautiful location. However, there were some flaws as below;
1. The Route was not matching with the one shown and provided along with the registrations.
2. The route was marshalled well except in the 2 nd loop just before the finish line and hence most of the runners felt short of almost 1.8 km for 5k and 3.9 to 4.1 km for the 10k. The 1st Loop of 10 k was perfect and the 2nd loop should have followed the 1st loop but it didn't happen as marshals didn't guided well”
“Bad organizing. NO jerseys available as mentioned.”
“It was well organized. Amazing route
If I would suggest something is to have sign at each kilometers so the runner can track their progress and adjust accordingly.
“hype it more next time so many people will joined. actually is more cheaper, great experience and more photos than adnoc marathon. i hope adsc will conduct more run event this year. because most of the are run event are all in dubai. so sad.”
“I enjoyed running in golf course ”
“The course was not at the full length stated which is really frustrating as it is so easy to resolve. The course at the end was difficult to understand due to confusion with what the Marshalls were telling us. On the second lap for the 10km runners were they meant to do the extra bit before entering into finish. This was so easy to avoid and should have been an obvious place where mistakes could happen. I was also told to go straight by a marshal instead of right. Car was parked in front of the ”
“A changin locker or space would have been good. ”
“Beautiful venue, well priced race entry. But you need to work more on the marshals and volunteers. There was poor level of support, cheering and guidance from them. ”
“I love the Tshirt design!”
“There was lots of confusion when people start. i suggest a clear color code might help between the three
The awards took too long to start and my son got so frustrated when they did not do the 3KM as he was the first in his category and he wanted his gift and to go on the podium.
Unfortunately I couldn't able to attend the run due to delayed updating of Al Hoshan application. I deeply felt, you are not issued my T Shirt even showing All documents. You are rejected due to valid Covid test result (It is not mentioned any where to produce 4 days Valid PCR for Collecting T shirt). Organizing team was very poor and improve your approch.”
“Abu Dhabi Gulf Sports is much better to handle this kind of event.”
“رائع جدا واتمنى مثل هذه السباقات يمنعون العدائين المشهورين من المشاركة لإعطاء المبتدئين فرصة ففي كل سباق نرى عدائين مشهورين يحتكرون السباق ويفوزون بالمراكز الأولى كونهم أصحاب خبرة وبطولات عالمية فمثل هذه السباقات للمبتدئين فقط ”
“Confusing signs and running route in some areas was slippery. But in general I like the running 2022”
“Good run but confusing sings, running track is not good condition ”
“Although the email mentioned that the last time for racing was 8:30 (3km) we arrived at 8:00 but they didn't let us race. We were told that race pack ended at 7:30 but the email did not mention that. Organizing team was not friendly either ”
“Overall without any cons, great mornin run.”

“Course was short, post race email was not received. No pictures available and/or info on pics. ”
“Good experience 1st time in my life and interest to join future events.
Event Well organized ”
“volunteers don't now the roadmap and the finish line, the results in system is wrong,

“The total distance was not 10KM. ”
“Awesome experience running by the golf course ?”
“All arrangements were good, but it was a surprise that the 10km race distance was only 9.60 Km. This was recorded in my watch ss well as few others.”

Overall a great event, and hopefully the next one is even better ??”

“You guys are amazing! From the organizers,volunteers,the race pack,quality of t-shirt,refreshment and maintaining the covid protocol!
Thank you and more events in Abu Dhabi please from your side? ”
“We had a bad experience at ADSC Run 2022. My son Isaac Singh Bib No.: 3084 was given wrong directions on the route by the Marshalls. He ran 5 K instead of 3 K. His results are now not showing on the board. We are very upset and want to talk to somebody in charge there. Please call us on 0504927074.”
“Only mixed up at 5k and 10 km points. ”
“Track guidence need to be improve. ”
“Thank you for an interesting race. The course was brilliant especially on the greens however dangerous on the cycling and walking paths. Insha'Allah it takes place at the same venue, please ensure that the start of the 5/10km. I witnessed a nasty collision between a 10km back marker and 5km fast runner.
I was disappointed with the prize awards and believe it should be reviewed. If there are no prize rewards for top 3 finishers then a top 3 finisher should claim category prize. ”
“My race was supposed to start at 7:50. When I arrived at 7:45, all the runners were out !!!
It would be great to stick to the time schedule.
Also, awards were given for the first place only which is very unusual since awards are typically given for the first three places”
“More details about the run’s results are needed after the run, e.g. positions by age category, etc.
Also links to photos are required as many photographers were present on site and there was no information disseminated about the event’s photos.”
“My bip 1227 did not work so don’t know my time ”
“Excellent, still a little confusing on the court , when the 10 km went on their second round and the 5 km came back already.
That pathway , that was a bit narrow, may be a marshal should have benn there.
The slight delay in medal presentation, most people left.
Otherwise , I enjoyed it soooo much running there.
Kind regards ,
“little bit tight but beautiful course. But it was bit disappointing that the 2nd and 3rd in age group didn’t get anything not even a medal. ”
“It wasn't as organised as it should be.
Race start times were off.
Runners didn't know ehre the finish line was. My race was 3km, but I know Inran under 3km.”
“The actual distance of 10K run was only 9.5K”
“No photos received. Not unlike in inphota that we can get our photos captured . Atleast we know where we can find our photos available to download or copy. ”
“The distances was a bit off and there was a lack of signage throughout the run.”
“The event was not well organized. They made a mistake on the timings, the route was not properly marked, and there were not enough people supporting the runners. Due to this we went the wrong way once and had to turn back and in the end on 2.5km out 3km were done so we were disqualified. ”
“Great course, well organised in terms of collecting numbers and so on. A bit of a shame at the end as the course came up short, but very good other than that. Very friendly marshalls and good atmosphere.”
“Timing glitch for 3km awards. Very disappointing after waiting 1.5 hours till now no official results”
Excellent support and encouragement from volunteers.
“Well organized and finished on time ”
“Received messaged explaining 96 hour pcr and this was imposible with my work so I could not attend. Very disappointed ”
“Good organisation after rain and having to change the route. Enjoyed the run”
“The race was good, nicely priced. Just need an area to store bags and jackets. Plus I think a number of people were directed wrongly at the end leaving a shortfall of 0.5 km.
But thanks for a good day.”
“Extremely dangerous track. Ridiculous to start the 5K three minutes after the start of the 10k.
I saw a woman knocked down hard on the ground by a fast 5K runner trying to pass us 10K runners- very bad!!
Very crowded start, narrow track for the first one km, soft soil ground portions, no additional medals for podium winners, late announced results, delayed medal ceremony. overall terrible organization. ”
“My chip apparently never worked and I ended up nowhere in the name lost ”
“I really had fun, but im just surprise about the ruining track.”
“Im happy with how it goes :)”
“Route could be marked better for the runners. The 5k and 10k turns at few points were confusing ”
“The side walk and cycling track were very narrow for a marathon run, there were not enough signs for the different marathons 3K, 5K, 10K directions and we had to ask the people standing at the points while running.
I’ve done ADNOC marathon twice and they have better signs for the different routes.
On the way in and out of the Yas Links (walking) there were wires poorly installed by the organizers for something there and it was a big tripping hazard.
Thank you ”
“The marshals directing the participants didn't have clear information. I lost time due to poor guidance. Overall i enjoyed the race. Looking forward to more races from you, Thank you for the T-shirt! It lovely. ”
“The course was a mess with too many pinch points and a lack of competent marshalling and signage at places runners were most likely to take a wrong turn. The courses were short. ”
“Not sure if the course distance was entirely accurate. Nice setting for the race, but marshals gave conflicting directions and unsure of where people could gather post-race - more signs would have been helpful. Organization could have been a little slicker, but generally a good event”
“Worst run race ever they called us to start run then they disqualifies us saying we started earlier
“More directions needed. Signs are clearer to understand than stewards, just print 4/5 more of these for the course at key turns ”
“I wish Abu Dhabi Sports Council awarded you again all the Abu Dhabi events. Great organization, overall experience and true value for money. ”
“I have participated in several running races but today was the worst organizing ever we were very frustrated and we decided it will be our lazt participation with this organization.
We are 3km runners. And after the guy on the start line called for 3km eunners and said go .. and we started and finished the race . They said at the end that 29 of us are disqualifies because we ran early timing.
Whos fault it !!!
I need someone to contact me
“I was a great experience! ”
“It has been a great and fun experience! Kudos to the sponsors and organizers!”
“Very crowded start, narrow track for the first one km, soft soil ground portions had risk of injuries, no additional medal for podium, late announced results, delayed medal ceremony. In overall poor organization. ”
“Run in golf was very good. But the race made only 9,5km not 10. There was not each km.”
“Beautiful course, nice t-shirt, after run hydration. At this price it was a very well organised event. Looking forward to the next event. ”
“The course was less than 10km.”
“any changes or updates kindly inform us earlier because it is mentioned PCR test not exceeding to 96 hours however in the email which is a late update and change mentioned not later than 7:00 am Tuesday 6th 2022 which is a very late update. just to clarify any updates at early as possible. thanks ”
“I did not get my result right. I think my chip didn't work. I was a bit disappointed even I finished the run it says I didn't.”
“The 5km distance was less (around 4.76/9)
The organization was poor and hectic (distribution of bibs, starting of the race, the race course at some points were too small to adjust 2 runner back and forth) ”
“Parking and starting arrangements could have been better organized ”
“Finish line bad indicated (5 km)”
“Good quality Product Tshirt & Medal”
“It was a very challenging route running in a golf course on grass/sand and uphill/downhill. Well there is some little things to correct like the incoming/outgoing runner in one lane but I put 10 for the rating. More running events in Abu Dhabi please.”
“The width of the track to run on was too narrow in places.
However running on grass and over hills was great”
“Routes werent marked properly leading to lot of confusion”
“The place was amazing , but he prizes was little ! I got the 2nd for age Gruop & others but not even a medal ! ”
“It was good, but in some cases needs more information signals about the route ”
“Parking marshals misled us. Direction marshals misled many. Timing splits were ?! ”
“It was fantastic.
I think the start could be better. Sending the runners 6 runners at a time is much better than letting them go at once.”
“Thank you. It’s challenging race ”
“Well organised and great communication. ”
“Very badly organized. 10k runners were sent in wrong direction and volunteers didn’t seem to know what was going on. Man in charge was rude and aggressive when asked questions ”
“Please conduct more running events”
“It was very well-organized. My only suggestion is that there should be more marshals along the course as it got confusing with the cones. It would be best next time to have split timing machines halfway during the course so runners can gauge how fast to run. Thanks for the event and please organize another run this month or in February. ”
“I loved the venue on the links. The ups and downs over the dunes took me by surprise [some sharp corners running downhill[ but it was fun. One thing that would have helped was kilometre markers. I think we had a timer that bleeped at the 10K half way point but even that was unmarked.”
